Drones

Maura, a woman of 50 in Drones, speaks on a bare stage about drones coming every day and about the signs “Drones Save Lives” that are everywhere.  She says no one knows where the drones are going to hit or who will be killed.  But she thinks that if they kill you, you must have been guilty, and that a certain amount of quantum uncertainty is built into the system that may now be completely automated.  She says that most of this place is a wasteland and someday there won’t be any people left, just piles of rubble and skeletons, and flying about it all will be the drones, “like giant pterodactyls.” dropping bombs on the ruins, “saving lives.”
