Road Test

Nobody asked but …

Here is a good way to check your latent tendencies on the voluntaryist/interventionist scale.

When you are riding shotgun with a significant other or a close associate driving, do you:

  • Give unrequested directions?  If not, you might be a voluntaryist.
  • Ask what route will be taken?  If not, you might be a voluntaryist.
  • Mime the mechanical techniques of operating the vehicle?  If not, you might be a voluntaryist.
  • Point silently turns that could be made?  If not, you might be a voluntaryist.
  • Supervise braking, accelerating, and speed decisions?  If not, you might be a voluntaryist.
  • Relax and trust the driver?  If so, you might be a voluntaryist!
