Droning On

Alyssa Rosenberg ponders the role of Hollywood superheroes in the era of drone surveillance and warfare:

“If you can take out the bad guy without destroying much of a major metropolitan area along with him—and, it goes without saying because we’re operating in the realm of Hollywood fantasy, without killing specific Americans in the process—why do we need these brawling, imperfect figures to fight our wars and wreck our cities for us?”
