By selling your airspace rights over your home, the FAA will make billions in taxpayer money.

By using your airspace right over your home Amazon will make hundreds of millions.

By selling the video Amazon takes while flying over your home to the NSA/FBI, Amazon will make billions in taxpayer money as the US expands the panopticon.

“Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.” ― George Orwell, 1984

This is a progressive attempt at revolution, just like the molotov cocktails.
we made them in science! 😁

People not flying safe and where they should not started this whole mess.
Yes, kind of, but I agree with @JasonK more on this one though. If you ever want to find the truth of something just follow the money. Amazon is more wealthy and powerful after this year than ever before. We are in the way.

My only hope is that we can get enough say in the matter so that barrier to entry for long range flying isnt "billion dollar tech company" high but i suspect that may be wishful thinking.
