Free the Air: The Benefits of Letting Drone Owners Fly

Fly, Drones, Fly

From delivering packages of medicine to sending packages of sportswear to videoing the landscape, drones have recently accounted for significant purchases over the past year. Their entertainment, education, and voyeuristic potential have put the United States government at unease. And that’s why statist regulators have crawled out of the woodwork to put a stranglehold on drone owners. By forcing guiltless citizens to register their drones, the government, instead of protecting rights, is trampling all over the rights of these unique flyers. While it is a legitimate concern for pilots of private and commercial traditional aircraft, the fault lies not with drone flyers.

It is up to the philosophy of law to determine the boundaries, guidelines, parameters, and punishment for breaking such barriers. But the idea is to prevent Peeping Toms and possible terrorists from disrupting air travel. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is yet another organization of the United States which ought to be abolished as it throttles innovators. By regulating the industry of flight, the FAA holds superfluous power over airlines from pilots to passengers. As opposed to setting laws and limits on the field of recreational drone usage, regulations instead impede the drone owners and keep them from fully experiencing the thrill of sending a friend a package in a most unconventional fashion. With such regulations in place, the drone owners ought to fight against imposing Mother State and Father Fed to rule and govern their lives. They ought to refuse to sign if possible. It is important to remember that the elimination of this regulation and others would free up the air. While drones seem foreign, alien and somewhat dangerous, the automobile seemed to be a threat to horse and buggy as well and of course history shows that the new, strange thing won over the antiquated and infeasible. Markets ought to dictate whether a product such as a recreational drone or a industrial drone can be in the air up there. A free market solution to the drone problem may be at hand. That’s if the government gets out of the way.

      This is where government has a role in the whole drone situation. Local, city, state and federal agencies ought to protect the rights of land owners, aircraft owners, and other individuals who may have their rights violated by drones.

      The main challenge of allowing anyone to fly a drone, is the amount of idiots who have them!

      It may be an idea to have another drone that hunts them down if they are near an airport or such, then blow it out of the sky!
