You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Economists call this maxim a “trade-off". You are always balancing between opposing forces, having it all is not an option. In the late 1800s, you could either take a carriage and ride slowly but comfortably or ride faster, but solo (and uncomfortably), on horseback. That was the case, until it changed in 1912, thanks to Henry Ford. You could now travel both comfortably and fast. This is why new technology has always been lauded in society, because it changes the nature of these trade-offs entirely.
