Nissan2013“The car made it possible for man to do more things by enabling him to go in a shorter time to more places where something was cooking. It also made it virtually impossible for man to think any longer. It mechanized the last chink of time. Its operation—or even its motion—demanded too much attention for introspection. With the radio going, it became a sort of cheapskate traveling circus; two rings and a continual performance. Sitting in his car, man decerebrated his species.” Philip Wylie, Generation of Vipers (Rhinehart, 1942)
