American’s embrace Big Brother in the sky:
Close to half of Americans say they are in favour of police departments deploying surveillance drones domestically. According to a survey conducted
by The Associated Press and The National Constitution Center, 44
percent support the idea of police using unmanned aerial vehicles to
track suspects and carry out investigations. Only 36 percent said that they “strongly oppose” or “somewhat oppose” police use of drones, according to the survey.
And they vote. Do you know, I used to wonder how Germans could possibly have been dumb enough to support the National Socialists, to say nothing of overwhelmingly voting for the four plebiscites that solidified their power. It’s not exactly a mystery these days.
