I didn't send a dime to Nepal because everyone who asked for it made more money than me, but I did give all my spare change to beggars in the streeet who asked for it because they were in obvious need. Charity is about giving, and the "talented" MBA type CEOs just exist to suck in as much income from anyone than can.

I don't care if they are successful, only that they give. And I can tell you I am not the only one who quit giving part of my pay because of their CEO's greed. People got so tired of giving to an organization whose president sucked up more than we earned that we all refused to donate anymore. Charity is about giving, not profiting.

It is their executive's compensation that is the problem. When you are being asked to give charity, you expect that those you are giving it to are charitable minded themselves. I quit donating a percentage of my paycheck to the United Way when I found out that their executives were sucking up many times my salary in compensation. If I give, and I am more than willing to do that, you give.

"...all the downsides to this seem like nonsense to me..."

That's probably because you don't want to think critically about how some of those downsides will effect others. Besides all the safety concerns, there simple nuisance and property right issues to examine. Look, I want flying cars as much as the next guy, but I don't want them or delivery drones buzzing over my house.

In case of atomic attack, all work rules will be temporarily suspended.
