I can give you another reason besides collateral damage, which of course is important and huge. The areas which are targeted by drones are circled by them day in day out, 24/7, causing continuous panic and anxiety to the entire population, whether they are employed or not. See Living Under Drones.

But I can understand your question, if what you are hinting at is that drones are scarier because they are separated from their human operator in a way that machine guns are not, and that therefore the anti-anthropocentrist really isn't one ...
