The law disagrees with you.

If you'll never use the passcode, there is no reason to have it. Asking for it is, ipso facto, reason not to trust you with it. The best solution is for the child to lie to you about the passcode. If you can be trusted, you will never find out about the lie. If you ever do find out they lied, you've proven they were justified.
There are alternatives available now. There's no excuse to be expanding, or even maintaining, coal fired plants. Put that money into building alternatives.
Why should they make any profit whatsoever? They're an anachronistic middle man.
A child does not take that many man-hours to create. I would imagine that if you summed all the extra effort forced on everyone else, it would amount to more than that required to simply create new children to replace those lost.

People give churches billions of dollars a year, too. That doesn't mean prayer works.
And the first time a bank gets hacked, everyone's fingerprints are public.
Not to mention that detecting a live finger is meaningless if you're depending on remote systems not to lie to you.
But services aren't taxed (I'm not saying they should or shouldn't, i'm just stating a fact).
Yes they are. Most sales taxes are in fact Goods and Services Taxes.
You don't get to decide things you don't pay for. The people that pay for things gets to decide them.
If you ever feel the need to install an ad blocker, you're doing it wrong.
Hence why CNN doesn't get to decide whether their ads display on the computer I paid for or not.
What I want doesn't matter one whit. Every asshole is going to have that freedom because there's nothing that can be done about it.
It's that thing that is dangerous, not the drones. Drones are never going to get any more expensive than they are now. They're only going to get cheaper, more disposable, and harder to trace back to their pilot.
People are going to do whatever they please with them. If some other activity isn't compatible, then it's that activity we'll have to restrict.
Amazon isn't forcing DRM on the publishers. They would be quite happy to let them sell ebooks without it.
That and the publishers "share" of profits is exactly zero. Anything above that is a market inefficiency.
We should be sending samples there, to try to find one that can thrive. Once we do, spread it liberally over the surface.
So that's not going to be an improvement.
Which, of course, it is not, that still leaves the entirely reasonable objection that they have the data for any reason at all. Why should they be trusted with it?
