Bring On The Robots

A fun thing to think about is bringing people back from the dead.

Like, Jesus, for example.  Boy, he'd be surprised to find out that his teachings of self-ownership and anarchism got turned into him being a zombie god that people think can hear him from where he lives in outer space and ask him to make it so they win football games.

Or, wouldn't it be great to bring Thomas Jefferson back from the dead and take him to the Jefferson memorial where Adam Kokesh (possibly one of the only men in the business whose been handcuffed more than me) got headlocked and arrested for dancing (read my short novela on how that would go down here).

As HL Mencken said, "Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood".  And, boy do we ever seem to misunderstand them!

1984 AN INSTRUCTION MANUAL

George Orwell Lived HereOne of the most interesting would be to bring back George Orwell, the man who wrote the dystopian novel, 1984, which ended up being an instruction manual for most western nation states.

The only thing he got slightly wrong was the date.  If he had chosen 2004 it would have been slightly more accurate.  After all, in 1984 we could still go to a Van Halen concert and dance to "Jump" without being overly watched, videotaped, regulated and abused by the law.  Not so much anymore.

UNMANNED DRONES TO MAN THE SKIES OVER AMERICA

Even Orwell may be shocked to hear that Congress has just passed a bill, the FAA Reauthorization Act, mandating that the Federal Aviation Administration create a comprehensive program for the integration of drone technology into the national air space by 2015. The FAA predicts that there will be 30,000 drones crisscrossing the friendly skies of America by 2020.

Currently all drones are “piloted” by desk jockeys who sit in air-conditioned offices, occasionally dealing some death at the push of a button. Imagine some publicly "educated" kid who’s played Black Ops in his basement his whole life and is completely unattached to anything resembling real life sitting behind the joystick - only a finger twitch away from you being blown into bits…

"When is the pizza coming in? Blowing up wedding parties sure does build an appetite.”

So in this brave new world of big brother, with eyes in the sky 24-7 keeping Americans "safe", it would seem that the US military is being influenced by another pop-culture icon, namely the Terminator series.

Hunter-Killer

For those of you unfamiliar with the Terminator movies, they are set in a dystopian future where an integrated autonomous strategic defence computer becomes self-aware and sets out to exterminate the human race.  The star of the terminator movies is - in another twist of cruel fate - none other than the Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays an autonomous killing machine known as the “Terminator”

Taking a cue from the radical environmentalist James Cameron (who recently fled the US), DARPA has come up with the first generation of completely autonomous drones, the X-47B.  This robot plane will be able to carry up 4,500lbs of ordinance and will be almost completely undetectable – and we are sure the Pentagram will soon be asking the FAA to clear the skies for its menacing presence.

Future hunter-killer

The LA Times, in a profile of the latest and greatest to come out of the military-industrial complex, asks, "New drone has no pilot anywhere, so who's accountable?": 

"Although humans would program an autonomous drone's flight plan and could override its decisions, the prospect of heavily armed aircraft screaming through the skies without direct human control is unnerving to many."

So let’s get this straight: unmanned, armed, autonomous drones will be scouring the continental USA for targets (sovereign citizens, marijuana growers, Ron Paul Supporters) in the Global War On Terror?

But hey, all is not lost, it looks like the Iranians have already found out a way to commandeer US drones – live by the sword of technology and you will die by it.

During the interview, Salami stated, “The U.S. plane that we recently took over is not much more advanced than our drone technology. However, a combination of achievements and advancements in the areas of intelligence and aeronautics and guiding and controlling has been used in this aircraft, which can (help us make) technological achievements."

Most humans today, especially in the government indoctrinated US, have had rational and logical thinking bred out of them to the point where you could never communicate with them on anything except for the repetition of mantras they are told to repeat.

We'll take our chances with the robots.

At least if the robots have some form of artificial intelligence... better than non-existent intelligence... we may be able to talk some sense into them.  Maybe in the not so distant future, there will be a DDoS attack on the Pentagram’s servers, and the power will once more return to the hands of the people.  Armies of programmers from around the world, like those who work with Anonymous, could find a way to short circuit or reprogram the drones.

Who knows, maybe we could get them reprogrammed and send all 30,000 en route to Washington DC, programmed to disarm the very police state that created them.
