ISIS had also made deadly adaptations to its use of drones, Iraqi officers said. In the first days of the battle for western Mosul, they were being employed with newfound intensity, swarming Iraqi positions, disrupting operations, and inflicting casualties. The drones dropped more than 70 bombs on one sector alone in a span of just two days, commanders said. Arkan himself was wounded in the foot by shrapnel from one as he called in airstrikes. “I can’t command and control with all this chaos,” he said. “Like, I can deal with the shooting. But with things dropping, it’s very difficult.” – Mike Giglio, BuzzFeed
This is just the latest in many reminders that technology can’t in and of itself propel mankind into a new Utopian age where we all live in peace and harmony. Neither will it take us to the depths of hell. Technology is a tool that can just as easily be used for evil or good. How long before Russia is assassinating journalists via self-driving cars?
Whether you're talking about drones, Twitter, guns, etc it doesn't matter. If you can’t change mankind’s heart, you can’t change the world.
