When was the last time you saw a new technology that was developed simply to help the people? When was the last time you saw a new technology that was primarily intended to help the people rather than generate fat profits for corporations or more power for government? How many new technologies that might truly enrich the public have been suppressed in order to maintain profit levels for major corporation and power levels for the government?
Here’s a video of group of university scientists who developed a system whereby a “pilot” can fly a quad-copter with only his thoughts.
For most of my life, I would’ve said “Oooo, cool!” and wondered how long it would be before I could buy or build one of those systems for myself. But after catching my first glimpse of this new technology, I was surprised to find my first reaction to be wondering how government will exploit this technology to push us deeper into the growing police state.
