The Bill of Rights can only legally be changed through an amendment or a Treaty ratified by the United States Senate. The Supreme Court can interpret the Bill of Rights to make it apply to new technologies such as, television and the Internet, but it cannot amend the Bill of Rights.
The First Amendment has unlawfully been revised to eliminate free speech, freedom of assembly and the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. The Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments were similarly revised to allow search and seizure without probable cause and to allow torture and indefinite detention without trial.
The recent announcement of the acquisition of 30,000 drones to patrol the American skies will require major revisions to several amendments as the majority of these drones will be armed. At first, they will be only be armed with shotgun tasers which can be lethal but could quickly be replaced with shotguns, machine guns and missiles. Tasers kill two people every week so they already violate the right to a trial and the prohibition of both torture and cruel and unusual punishment. But there is another problem presented by the use of drones in law enforcement.
US laws must be revised to give drones and robots the same protection as the police have in cases of armed resistance. A human policeman has the right to defend himself from a violent assault. This includes deadly force. But what of a drone? Suppose a drone has issued a verbal order to disperse to an unlawful assembly. Someone in the crowd responds by shooting at the drone. Another drone returns fire and kills the man for resisting an armed robotic agent. The constitutional problem is that the drone is not currently granted the same right to life as a human. This must be revised so drones have the right to use lethal force to protect themselves from the citizenry.
Of course the right to preemptively kill anyone on a list of enemy combatants would require the government to rewrite the Bill of Rights to allow summary execution without trial and the right to confront witnesses, the right to a lawyer and to reasonable bond. And all that nonsense against torture in the Eighth Amendment has got to go. The Fifth Amendment right to refuse to incriminate yourself would be a moot point as enemy combatants would be dead and not need to face a trial of their peers.
Drones and robots owned by the federal, state and local governments will have to be granted the right to life. But those rights must be denied to any privately owned drone or robot. This will require a return to the original Constitution which did allow voting for white men but not for women and blacks.
My modest proposal is that we eliminate the Second to Tenth Amendments. I would rewrite the Fifth Amendment to apply it to drones and robots but not to humans. It would be impossible to rewrite the Fourth Amendment to include TSA genital groping at malls, sporting events and dances. Or how could we rewrite the Bill of Rights to allow for self-incrimination when there are no more trials? And the right to reasonable bail and a speedy trial should be just excised from our collective memory rather than be rewritten.
Here is my proposed First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law prohibiting the right of the people to worship their government. Congress shall make no law prohibiting the right of the government to freely communicate its views to the people nor abridge the right of the people to peaceably assemble and listen to their government.
The Fifth Amendment should be renamed the Robot Right to Life Amendment. The remainder of the Bill of Rights is to be terminated so calling it the Second Amendment would just confuse people who were looking for the original version. It would also unnecessarily perplex those who were looking for Amendments Three through Ten which will, as I said, no longer exist.
This is my proposed Robot Right to Life Amendment.
Drones, robots and other forms of artificial life while in service to the federal, state and local governments shall not be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.
Drones, robots and other forms of artificial life are granted the right to use deadly force to protect that life against citizens not employed in the services of government. This Amendment should in way be construed to mean that citizens cannot be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process.
This Robot Right to Life Amendment will allow drones and robots to use deadly force against humans who try to physically harm them while they are performing their duties, such as, shooting people with shotgun tasers and firing tear gas canisters at unlawful assemblies.
Recently, the Iranians electronically hijacked a CIA drone and forced it to land. Under the Robot Right to Life Amendment this would be classified as felony kidnapping which would call for summary execution. And, if the drone were to crash beyond repair, then the citizen would be guilty of murder and should be summarily executed without trial.
It has occurred to me that there are those of you out there who would like to buy a kit from the Iranians to hijack some of those 30,000 Homeland Security drones to crash them into federal government buildings or at least into the most expensive cars in their parking lots. Do not think such thoughts! Thinking bad thoughts is illegal.
Besides, trade with Iran is forbidden for all NATO nations. You would probably have to go to China to buy Drone Hacking Kits. The Chinese would sell them cheaper anyway. If these kits are made illegal, there are dastardly people out there who would copy the blueprints and instructions for making drone killing kits to share them with their friends. Do not do that! This will lead to the dangerous condition known as Human Freedom. It might even lead to the restoration of the Bill of Rights. And that would embolden the people to demand the arrest of the bankers who stole tens of trillions of dollars from them. They might even dare to abolish the Federal Reserve to prevent hyperinflation and runaway government debt. And that would lead to excessive prosperity and maybe even the end of war.
Before anyone accuses Vidrebel of having gone off the deep end by writing and publishing an outlandish proposal such as this, please consider the undeniable fact that what I have written here makes as much sense as anything the federal government has done to us since they declared war against America and the entire free world on 9-11-2001.
