This could all s change of course. Big money is on it. Yesterday, 60 Minutes showed a prototype delivery service being tested by Amazon that used drone aircraft to fly parcels directly to your doorstep.

Interviewer Charlie Rose effused most giddily at the reveal, along with much of the fawning online media today. This despite the sad prospect that implementation of such a scheme implies EVEN FEWER jobs for Americans. Thanks, Mr. Bezos. But if you really want to be as “disruptive” in a good way, how about figuring out how to increase human employment, rather than only the opposite?
