Where the Tech Goes, America Eventually Follows

Survey: Americans aren’t keen on drones, Google Glass-like devices | PCWorld

Hate to bust your news-byte, bub, but as a general proposition, Americans haven’t been keen on any technological advance since the rise of the Boomers and their barely concealed Luddite tendencies.  We’re heard how:  Radio; Television; Walkmans; CD Players; DVDs; Computers; Cell Phones; Smart Cellphones; and a host of other advances are going to destroy the American civilization and way of life – usually shortly before America changes its mind and takes up the latest new fangle by the hundreds of millions.

It will be the same thing with Glass and its many competitors.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
