Motherfucker, PLEASE. The book isn’t anti-autonomous cars at all. I fucking WISH writing anti-Tesla articles made one tiny bit of difference on book sales. It doesn’t. And I’m not anti-Tesla. But if this is your reaction to this story, perhaps you should seek out your clergyperson or a trusted relative. Maybe a Read more

I think you’re misinterpreting the quote. You’re correct that inclusivity is about lifting unheard voices, but inclusivity also asks that we quiet the voices that have traditionally dominated the conversation in order to make space for those unheard voices.

Thank you for the kind words! I completely understand the frustration you can have with the comments section. It can be really disheartening to find that so many people you spend time with can be incredibly intolerant. Every so often, I get really down on racing for the same reason.
