As for eliminating car ownership, why would that be a bad thing? Most people don't really own their cars anyway. They just make monthly payments on them until they trade them in.

If Uber or some other ride-share platform could get you a lower monthly payment, why would that be a bad thing?
From a game theory standpoint the idea is a loser platform is irrelevant.

Human nature is a factor you don't seem to grok.

People like freedom. Speak for yourself but I like my vehicle and of the 53 of them I have owned 51 were bought and paid for with cash.

Uber is already losing so much $$ they will likely fail. They aren't something to be emulated IMO. Last thing I would want is them to be a creditor either.
