A recent study suggests that by 2030, the majority of U.S. consumers will not own an automobile—instead, they will use “on demand” self-driving vehicles. The trend will start in the biggest cities, and trickle down to the suburbs and rural areas.
The message is clear: it’s the “end” of ownership.
The same way it’s been the end of ownership in terms of physical media: DVDs, CDs, books, etc. The same way the concept of “home ownership” has been more and more of a pipe-dream.
No, it’s not a Communist fever-dream—the Capitalism is still there. You still have to buy shit. Or rather, spend money.
