This is a pretty important point that really might be better suited for the Politics thread, but we're standing on the edge right now of a few technologies that will severely disrupt our economy. Self-driving cars (and, by extension, self-driving trucks) will decimate an entire sector of the economy, with no ready solutions as to where those people will go when their industry is basically shuttered.

We can't really stop this technology from happening, and the end result may be very beneficial for a lot of people, but there's going to be a lot of pain for millions of people while the changeover happens.
