In this third monthly meeting of the Un-iversity Book Club, we discuss Why We Drive: Toward a Philosophy of the Open Road by Matthew B. Crawford.
What appears to be a book celebrating driving as liberation is just as much a condemnation of the "safety-ism" that has so far defined the 21st century, and certainly this new decade.
“Left to its own internal logic, the regime of public safety must find ways to justify its own growing payroll, and its colonization of ever more domains of life. This can always be accomplished through further infantilization of its clients; under the banner of good democratic values.”
"Self-driving cars must be understood as one more escalation in the war to claim and monetize every moment of life that might otherwise offer a bit of private head space.”
"Drive Slow" Kanye West
"Open Road" Slightly Stoopid
"Traffic Tickets" The Gadjits
