I should get myself a drone. It seems that many law enforcement agencies have drones and even some people are using them to record the activities of law enforcement agencies, although I have no doubt that this will soon be stopped by new laws making it illegal to record the activities of law enforcement agencies from drones. Until those laws come, it would be nice to have a drone.
It will be like being invisible and being able to see others without being seen. That is a childish dream made reality by the ingenuity of humans. We can make some of our dreams come true.
If you hear a noise above your head and glance up you may see a drone recording what you do and beaming its pictures to some organisation created to protect your being but not your privacy. Some in other lands hear the whine of a fast drone which is armed and directed at a nearby place. No doubt in a few short years more folk will be killed by drones than by bullets.
But the generation of drones I fear the most will be those yet to be invented, the nano-drones. As small as a fly they will ruthlessly invade your privacy in the name of protecting you. This has always been the way of tyrants.
Nano-drones will also be able to deal in death, ruthlessly and without detection. I fear them.
