Re: Bomb Carrying Robots
You have found the one word that summarizes it all: Chaos.
The advancement and easiness of travel and communications shouldn't have a negative side, though. As someone who travels often and hates feeling like a suspect, I can tell you that one of the problems I consistently see is that making things more difficult to the good people is not stopping the bad people to go commiting crimes. They simply get smarter and find new ways. As in cybersecurity happens, they always seem to be one step ahead. That's not good, isn't it? That's what needs to be fixed.
You say about borders, but there are other ways of moving around and certainly the ones who need to be stopped are not traveling and crossing borders like us. Is air traffic efficiently controlled? What about the seas and shores?
It's impossible to control communications. It's true that many crimes have been commited for the instant moment of fame. Who is to blame here? If certain media wouldn't devote their efforts to give them so much publicity, if instead, they would report the facts, short, it might help. But they wouldn't create such a huge wave of shares and clicks. Business first, right? That's how it is.
Yes, the Internet can be both a blessing and a curse in this case. It makes it easier to plan crimes, as you say, but it also makes life esier for us. As said before, new ways of stopping criminals need to be created without altering and bothering the life of everybody else.
<"So I think the miscreants have always been here, they now just have an easier path to organize, plan and carry out their crimes. And with the lax security, the crime can more often be comitted than prevented."> Yes, I completely agree. New security alternatives should be created. The old ones don't work any more.
