Since we can't expect people to control themselves, the next logical step is drones.
Trying to pick a good quote from that link is almost impossible. It's so chock-full of totalitarian justifications that you really need to read the whole thing to get the sense of what's going on here. In any case, I'll give you a sample.
“Everybody wants their privacy, but I don’t know how you’re going to maintain it,” (New York Mayor Michael) Bloomberg said on his weekly radio show. “It’s just we’re going into a different world, uncharted, and, like it or not, what people can do, what governments can do, is different ... you can’t keep the tides from coming in.”I love the mood of the statement - it's so relaxed. It's a shrug of the shoulders, a weary shake of the head, a rueful smile and a contract to a drone manufacturer so the police of East St. Louis, Camden, New York or wherever can pick up the latest surveillance tools to watch over a population gone feral.

This weekend, Charles over at DDE wrote a fabulous piece comparing the moral foundations of capitalism and socialism. Here's a tidbit:
All leaders are tempted by the easier, "more pragmatic" collectivist path. They are tempted by the proven path of tyranny over the individual.I would add the following: And when the temptations take hold, physically separate yourself from the masses and monitor / control their behavior so you can live in luxury, far from the devastation.
Dividing individuals from freedom is simple. Use either force or deception.
Where free people are more powerful than the government, interrupt the (sequence of events - see his post for the proper graphic) with wild promises and temptations.
Drones are a godsend to these people.
