Basically if you agree to the ToS you are telling Tesla - go ahead and experiment on me I won't sue you. If you are not interested in doing that don't use the functionality. I bet the first gentleman who was killed by the trailer very much subscribed to this philosophy because he was genuinely interested and intrigued by the technology and what it could do.

Just looking at the frequency at which this happens in the states compared with say India should show you that US gun laws are lethal and gun control is non existent. Anyone who really wants a gun can get one.

It has already happened here in India where many Brahmins a caste who were once on top of the pile are now living in poverty as they have no access to government grants, cushy seats and reserved educations that is given to almost everyone else. Only economic criteria is truly race and gender bias free and hence is the only one that ensures the good of those who need the help the most. When we let slip this criteria by any small amount we let in a vicious cycle that depends on politicians who sense an easy vote bank and will keep giving and giving concessions till the general category becomes a minority ...
