Looking at Google

This is a worthwhile thread. And any reader of Vlad’s for over a few months will recognize many of these events, which helps put us at ease about the veracity of his other observations.

I don’t know how to post an entire thread here, but click through to this one and you should be able to see all, 18 posts in this thread.

If power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, we need a third order of magnitude statement to describe what Google has become.

This article written years ago by an authority on the subject, details how it can be determined that Google does indeed slant its search results in contradiction to its own stated rules of operation.

Indeed. Contemplate the enormity. It is Harrison Bergeron being demanded and nothing less. The Dystopian future novels set is nearly complete.

Resignation letter to the New York Times of Bari Weiss

This was powerful enough that it was worth getting out of bed and posting.

I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago. I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home. The reason for this effort was clear: The paper’s failure to anticipate the outcome of the 2016 election meant that it didn’t have a firm grasp of the country it covers. Dean Baquet and others have admitted as much on various occasions. The priority in Opinion was to help redress that critical shortcoming.

I was honored to be part of that effort, led by James Bennet. I am proud of my work as a writer and as an editor. Among those I helped bring to our pages: the Venezuelan dissident Wuilly Arteaga; the Iranian chess champion Dorsa Derakhshani; and the Hong Kong Christian democrat Derek Lam. Also: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Masih Alinejad, Zaina Arafat, Elna Baker, Rachael Denhollander, Matti Friedman, Nick Gillespie, Heather Heying, Randall Kennedy, Julius Krein, Monica Lewinsky, Glenn Loury, Jesse Singal, Ali Soufan, Chloe Valdary, Thomas Chatterton Williams, Wesley Yang, and many others.

But the lessons that ought to have followed the election—lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society—have not been learned. Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.

Leaked Memo: ‘Apolitical’ Google Encourages Staffers to Protest Against Tough Migration Policies

This expose of Google’s full transformation from useful search tool into giant machine of deception for specific and essentially Orwellian purposes brought to you by Project Veritas via Sputnik:

The purported internal memo lists pro-immigration chants among examples of what to shout at protests. Last year, when Google employees were reported to have discussed tweaking search functions to help protest against Trump’s travel ban, the company said it did not favour any political agenda.

 

Project Veritas, a conservative transparency group, has obtained what it calls an internal document circulated among Google employees, titled ‘Beginner’s Guide to Protesting’.

 

As it appears from the title, the company, which claims it is devoid of political bias, wants its staffers to know what to do when they come out in the street for a protest.

The purpose of the document is “to assemble best practices and ensure that everyone feels comfortable and pumped about [email protected] marches/protests”.

 

No further details are given about the mysterious ‘[email protected]’, which could be an internal group coordinating protesters or merely a service providing information about upcoming events.

How google went from providing truth to forcing a fairly Marxist world view

Several people have sent this in today, and although it is in the first Links post of the day, as I watch through it more carefully, it deserves its own post. To say the very least. These people need to be in jail for fraud and a dozen other charges who’s names need more thought.
