Slanted

Comments about PBS NOVA: Rise of the Drones DVD:

This production was funded, at least in part, by manufacturers of drones and certainly have a vested interest in their perpetuation. Very little is said about: 1) the absolute horror they very frequently rain down on innocents in foreign lands. 2)the flagrant violation of International law our government comits everytime They cross a border to use them. 3)The absolute immorality of what is being done, and done in our name, (The American People), making the U S, in Obama's own description of what constitutes "terrorism" the biggest terrorists on the planet right now.

Drones and students

By kevin

Comments about PBS NOVA: Rise of the Drones DVD:

I think the last thing students need is teaching them that the erosion of our civil liberties is ok.They are at this point being exposed to all kinds of violations. In Texas in one of the poorest school districts the powers to be want the students to wear RFD badges to keep track op thier movements. At disneyland the wrist bracelets have RFD chips in the tracking all purchasers. What we need to be teaching our school individuals is that we live in a free society. If we do not teach what the government is doing to rob our civil rights from an early age then all will be lost because of social conditioning. Our young people need to be tought the constitution not. As a teacher you should put some deep thought into what is being brainwashed into our young peoples sence of right and wrong
