We’re talking about drones here, but we could be talking about nukes or germs or whatever. This is just what people do with anything new. I’m not saying it’s good or bad, I’m just describing the reality.

A video posted on YouTube showing a drone firing a gun in a wooded area has caused some controversy today. The short video shows a four-rotored custom drone with a special rig containing a handgun. The handgun proceeds to fire four shots, handling the recoil better than might be expected. The user who posted the video also submitted it to Reddit, where a commenter noted that the apparent use of a solenoid trigger would class the device as an automatic weapon under ATF rules.

Gun-Firing Drone Raises Some Eyebrows

Commercial drones hit the market maybe a year ago? Something like that.

Now we already have some idea of how capable the military/police versions are, given that they are the only effective weapon in the middle east since the spec ops guys went in to play regime change at the tribal level in Afghanistan. The only sorta-problem is that they are expensive. Now imagine we find ourselves in a real war, maybe against a proper insurgent Caliphate, maybe against an armed and angry citizenry of ~100 million, maybe both, maybe somebody else. The important thing is that drones are the weapons that will fight the globalists’ fight in the next real war. The scaling up effort will be absolutely enormous, by which I mean ~10% of the US GDP will go into the improvement and production of these systems.

Hopefully they try to build the new factories and sensors and what-have-you with H1-Bs, but the fact is that there are a lot of genuinely smart people out there and you only really need a relatively small number of them to work on this sort of project. Compare this to the Manhattan project- there are more than 3 million people in the US with IQs over 135, and more than 100,000 with IQs over 150, and several hundred with IQs above 170. You only need maybe a dozen of the latter (Fermi and his ilk), maybe a few dozen of the 150 IQ contingent, and a building full of 135 IQ grunts who can follow complicated sets of directions without constantly introducing extra problems into the process. These are readily found and sifted, given proper motivation and an intolerance for bureaucratic bullshit.

What I’m saying is that it is eminently possible to do something rapidly productive if the elite folks actually put their minds to it, and we have already noted that all they care about is retaining power, and increasing and centralizing power.

    ISIS is an American mercenary organization. There is nothing “Islamic” about it: they smoke, they drink, they take hard drugs, they fuck whores, and they’re only fighting for money.

    If you don’t believe this is possible, just remember that the CIA funded muslim insurgents in Indonesia because both Suharto and Sukarno were Japanese agents and Indonesia was part of the Axis.

    Whenever I see an organization that is called “Islamic” by the media you should always assume that its some joint project between America/the CIA and the House of Saud.

    The US absolutely hates secular(by which I mean not totally theocratic) nationalist regimes(e.g. Baathism, the Axis) because they are pragmatic enough to pose an actual threat.

      It’s true that ISIS was initially funded by the US, indirectly, but it’s not clear if this is intentional. I don’t think the US has a plan, they are a bunch of idiots. Some seriously think that they are spreading democracy by funding ”moderates”(sunnis), which naturally backfires.

      Go to chat, i have more free time these coming days.

  2. Heaviside says:

    The Manhattan Project was a failure. The US did not even build Little Boy, that was a captured German bomb. If the US did build it, then why did we find that we didn’t have any plans for it a year after it was dropped and have to redesign it from scratch?

    The United States was behind the Axis in every aspect of bomb technology in 1945 except possibly reactor construction. The reason why minor powers like Switzerland and Sweden were able to start their own bomb projects after the war without engaging in the monumentally expensive industrial undertaking that the US did is because they were the beneficiaries of some of that German know-how.

    Fermi was perhaps one of the reasons why the progress of the Manhattan Project was so retarded because, if I recall correctly, he was very pessimistic and conservative every step of the way: not believing in fission until it was experimentally proven, not thinking a bomb would be produced before the end of the war, and obstructing progress on fusion weapons.

    • Heaviside says:

      One other important thing to note is that, like everything else during FDR’s tyrannical reign, the Manhattan Project was chock-full of commie spies. Oppenheimer even had an NKVD codename! As soon as it became clear that this bomb was going to be targeted at the Soviet Union instead of the Axis, these racist, genocidal war criminals changed their tune and became soft-headed peaceniks. May they all burn in hell.

  3. I would contest that ‘all’ elite folks care about is centralising power. Bitcoin would not be $200 if this were the case, neither would Ethereum even be a thing. Elite folks in my opinion want a vibrant garden from which to harvest the fruits and centralisation only goes so far in this regard. Imagine a two-tiered anarchy-capitalism, the bottom tier operating on Vaishya/System D level using blockchains and supercomputing, the top tier on militarised Brahmin quantum Bayesian AI + Machiavellian Realpolitik is probably where the really smart people are trying to take things. Something like a digital pre-Revolutionary France on a nietzschean pretext.

      I can certainly see how everything else could derive from that, and you know more of these folks than I do.

      Now you’re just making up words :-O.
