Okay, drones. Jay Stanley's "New Eyes in the Sky: Protecting Privacy from Domestic Drone Surveillance" notes:
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – UAV’s or “drones” as they are called – are on the way. Just this week the Los Angeles Times reported that Customs and Border Patrol agency has been lending their Predator drones to law enforcement agencies for domestic operations. And their use is only going to spread.
The question is, will drones become pervasive spying tools that change the nature of American life? Will we be able to walk out of our front door without wondering at all times whether some eye in the sky might be watching every move we make?
Today we’re releasing a report on drones, “Protecting Privacy From Aerial Surveillance: Recommendations for Government Use of Drone Aircraft.” In the report, we discuss the current drone landscape (technology and use), talk about the privacy issues, and conclude with recommendations for protections we believe must be put in place to ensure they don’t destroy our privacy.
Drones. Our mechanical world takes us further and further away from the heart and air around us. Which is how we can think, "We need more nukes!" As opposed to, "What crazy moron thinks we stock pile things that could kill us thousands of times over and destroy the entire planet?"
