Speaking only for myself, it's not a matter of paranoia. It's outrage, as in how you would feel if you caught someone peeking over your fence while
sitting out in the back yard. Unlike millions on social media broadcasting every thought and action, I feel that not every aspect of my life is for
public consumption. And to those that do, I'm not making a values judgment, but privacy means privacy and should be a right not a luxury. And yes, I
concede that there are shades of grey but that's beyond this discussion.
Also, I wasn't advocating downing a drone, it was an interesting piece I'd found scrounging around on cryptome.org a while back. To deny ignorance is
to get information, from all points of view.
It's moronic to hold the view "I haven't done anything wrong so I don't have anything to hide." You don't have control over what is considered
"wrong." Two years ago, a good number of people would scoff at the idea the NSA is collecting every bit of electronic communications on U.S.
citizens. Today we know it to be fact. SO, the question is, why wouldn't these drones be watching us?
I don't do anything harmful when I'm getting the newspaper, or enjoying a beer on my deck yet it offends my sensibilities to think I could be under
constant surveillance while doing so.
