Drones Are Overhead - Right Now! Should We Be Concerned?
What Are the Effects?
The image of societies and nations is being effectively pushed towards police states where drones, surveillance, and technology are all being used to spy on its own people and people abroad. The drone has become the symbol of death and spying around the world.
Smart Phone Cameras
The same cameras that are inside of our "smart phones" are being utilized by these drones to collect data about its citizens around the globe.
Accidents & Human Error
While these cameras are more sophisticated than our cellphones, the abuse of this technology by government entities flies in the face of the morals and values that it tries to promote throughout the world.
The use of drones has actually caused more people to be recruited by extremist ideology. They are seen as the "buzzing" army with which the West has invaded Muslim countries.
Mental & Emotional effects
The effect of drones on the psychology of our families is a sense of constant fear.
What if someone makes a mistake, which has happened quite often and innocent people have been killed by someone thousands of miles away?
The more our youth are exposed to these images and negative outcomes of drones, the more that extremist views will be more attractive to them.
Adults have a huge responsibility and duty to protect their children and families from not only extremist ideologies, but also the technology that is being used to create "terrorism" in the first place.
Some businesses and organizations indicate readiness to begin using drones for deliveries, management, and reconnaissance.
The more that these drones become a part of everyday life the more that fear and apprehension ill become widespread.
The effect on animals is already being seen by how animals are reacting to the "humming' of drones and migration patterns a\have started to alter in areas that are utilizing heavy drone traffic.
Also it's hard not to notice the detrimental effect that drones are having on the environment, from destruction of villages and homes to change in ecosystems, drones have caused irreversible damage that will only continue to get worst as we utilize this technology.
Obviously the mighty military uses these unmanned aircraft to spy, calucalate and hit targets with minimum exposure to personell. This is actually one of the "good things" of pilotless aircraft - Depending on which side of the drone you are on (over or under).
