As one of the pro-drone spokesmen in the following video explains, he and his fellow researchers would never help create a technology that would reduce Americans’ rights.
But I don’t think that’s true. I think he means that he and his fellow researchers would never help create a technology that would reduce Americans’ right for free.
However, if the money was right, they’d create anything–no matter how much harm their creations might ultimately cause their nation.
Patriotism is popular so long as it doesn’t actually cost anything. We love our country. We even weep when we hear the National Anthem. But most Americans have far more loyalty to their bank accounts than they do to The United States of America. So, when we have a chance to choose between taking more money for ourselves or playing the role of “patriot,” most Americans will take the money every time.
It’s a shame. But I expect it’s always been that way and not only within The United States of America. Around the world, people have more loyalty to their money than they do to their nation. That’s probably why Mayer Amschel Rothschild reportedly observed, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
If, despite all of the patriotic crapola, money is what most people really worship, then control of the nation’s money supply gives one control over most of that nation’s people.
