Washington, D.C.:
In general, advanced technology designed to help, ends up by hurting. The subject of the drone comes at once to mind. Whatever its useful designed purpose, the drone has become an instrument of death and destruction and now, is being used by its developers to spy on the American and foreign populations. Drones have killed more people that aspartame and now we have them in America, in the hands of the military, the CIA and other investigative entities, local police departments, private snoopers and anyone else, staring down at Americans sunbathing, swimming, hiking, and working in offices. Overseas, the CIA uses drones to kill their perceived enemies, their families, friends, and stray humans who are in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now, it is estimated that over 300,000 small drones have been sold in the United States to anyone who can afford them. Soon enough, one will fly smack into the engine of a commercial airliner and kill 300 people. Already, law enforcement is calling for many restrictions on the civilian drones because they see very clearly that if some large tragedy happens because of drone use, their own snooping will be curtailed. And we learn from a friend that our wonderful CIA has developed small killer drones. Armed with a television camera, a gunsite, and a .223 single-shot weapon, a killer drone can pick out a target, swoop down on them from the sky, unseen, and fire a shot into his head before zipping off and out of sight. The CIA had sent two of these to the CIA people in the US Embassy in Moscow, in the bag of course, with the sole purpose of finding Edward Snowden taking a walk and blowing his brains out. Somehow, the Russians found out about this and the project failed. The problem with such marvelous technological devices is that they can, and will, come back on those who use them.
