Next Generation of Drone Pilots – Real Life Ender’s Game

by Rachel Baker on October 6, 2014

This is an interesting (albeit short) interview with Director Tonje Hessen Schei about her new documentary DRONE.

All I have to say about it is it would be really great if people read books like Ender’s Game (or at least watched the movie) and learned something from it other than ‘hey, we can use kids who game to destroy other groups’.

I think I might just be disgusted about the fact that video gaming is a recruiting tool for the Army and a program in Sweden is actively recruiting people as early as 12 years old. If that isn’t reminiscent of Ender’s Game, I don’t know what is.
