According to the American State, American citizens should be forced to register their private drones with said American State.
You know, ’cause citizens might hurt somebody with their drones…unlike the American State, which only regularly spies on and routinely kills innocent people because…well…that’s just what The State does, you know?
But citizens just can’t handle the responsibilities that come with things like drones.
Therefore, citizens can’t be trusted with things like drones
…or even home ownership (see: Why home ownership will never be allowed in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA).
This is what a culture looks like when Christians disengage and surrender their responsibilities to the State.
American citizens end up “needing” (and looking to) the American State to “protect” them; to shield them from the dangers of such “extreme” things as actual privacy, actual private property, and the responsibilities that come with them.
That’s the lay o’ the State-managed societal landscape here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA.
Recently, and just days apart, we were treated to two important stories that should help to make this painful reality plain:
- The Assassination Complex, published by The Intercept, chronicled in vivid detail the American State’s use of drones to kill people, many of whom are innocent “collateral damage”. If you haven’t read the article, you need to. If you aren’t disgusted by what “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA has become, you should be.
- The Washington Post also published Federal regulators to require registration of recreational drones (in the National Security section), in which, as the title makes fairly clear, our beloved State has found yet another bit of property and activity that we need to submit for its approval and regulation, all for our own good and safety, of course.
With these damning statistics and American State use of drones noted, let’s move on to consider a bit from the Washington Post article on how the same State is going to protect us from the dangers of drones by adding more regulation and registration (read: State power) into our lives:
Federal regulators said Monday that they will require recreational drone users to register their aircraft with the government for the first time in an attempt to track rogue flying robots that are increasingly posing a threat to aviation safety.
The decision to compel drone owners to register their aircraft represents a policy shift by the Obama administration. . .
Until we repent of this America State idolatry and submit to Christ as King in practice, we will only get (and deserve) much more of the same.
