Rosario Fortugno vs. Eric Peters

Resolution:

Autonomous electric vehicles will create a boost in personal freedom and quality of life and will be commercially viable in less than a decade.

For the affirmative:

Rosario Fortugno is the founder and CEO of InOrbis Intercity, the first all-electric, city-to-city ridesharing service in Canada. InOrbis has a fleet of Teslas operating in multiple areas in Canada and the US in 2020. As a consultant, Rosario has worked with Canada’s largest oil and gas companies to automate the hauling of bitumen in Alberta’s Oilsands. This has meant that nearly 50% of all large-haulage trucks owned by Suncor Energy are now running fully autonomously, moving bitumen (a mixture of crude oil and sand) in the open-pit mines near Ft. McMurray.

For the negative:

Eric Peters is a freelance Anarcho-Libertarian writer, who uses cars and bikes as the vehicle for making the case for freedom and self-ownership. His books include Road Hogs (2011) and Automotive Atrocities (2004). He has written for The Washington Times, Detroit News and Free Press, Investors Business Daily, The American Spectator, National Review, The Chicago Tribune ,and Wall Street Journal. He has also made regular appearances on “The Tom Woods Show” and describes himself as "a refugee from DC."
