The criterion is:

Are you using something, or is the thing in question using you?

It's clear that in our society cars are controlling us, instead of us controlling them.

We make all sorts of otherwise irrational decisions about domestic and foreign policy, just to insure that we can keep getting our fix of automotive transportation.

Yes, humans need transportation. But is a car the best option?

For most of the world the answer to that question is "Sometimes."

For America the answer is "Almost always."

And that's why it's an addiction.
