(A) the author is going to speak about autonomous vehicles without knowing a fucking thing about them

(B) the author is going to speak about law without knowing a fucking thing about it

(C) the author is going to speak about philosophy without knowing a fucking thing about it

(D) the author is writing for an audience who knows even less than he or she does

(E) the author is actively increasing the audience's naivete and ignorance about the subject
