Robotic tech (and cars) are great, but we humans are certainly not perfect...
None is perfect ofc without taking path to perfection but the drone argument not work cause there exist also computer controled remote control input autopilot software that not need human control input. Just like cars have manual and automatic and semi automatic transmissions so does drones.

You can't just postulate that some aspect of life, evolution and everything is simply outside of any given moral construct. Well you can, but that's just, like, your opinion.
How so? Doesn't morality imply choice? What technology has choice entirely separate from human choice?
