Addiction to Speed

Modern humans have an extreme addiction to speed. They will pay a huge premium for a tiny bit of extra speed. What is going on? Humans are highly addicted to being somewhere else, (a sort of grass must be greener syndrome), coupled with an addiction to spend as little time as possible traveling there. However, our speeds were quite limited. We never learned to equate speed with the danger of falling off a cliff.
