The Ethical Governor

John Butler (UK, 2010 8:00 mins)
Produced in the mock-serious tone of an intra-governmental presentation Butler’s Ethical Governor uses black humor to skewer the ethical problems of autonomous drone strikes. In narrating the “advanced” capabilities of a computerized killing machine, Butler highlights how the language of Neoliberalism makes broad, cold-blooded equivalences amongst economic, humanitarian, and legal concerns in light of overriding geopolitical goals.
