“Don’t be evil” was a motto originally used by Google. A lot has changed!
A former Google employee is blowing the whistle on his former employer’s business practices. The whistle blower claims that Google has created algorithms to hide its political bias within artificial intelligence platforms – in effect targeting particular words, phrases and contexts to promote, alter, reference or manipulate perceptions of Internet content. This former employee has delivered roughly 950 pages of documents to the United States Department of Justice’s Antitrust division Friday, August 9th, 2019. He has also sat down with Project Veritas in a revealing interview which we highly recommend you view below.
Regardless of your political leanings, if companies are permitted to lie to the public and to congress about their business practices it opens the way for them to become malevolent. We all can agree that this would help no one and, due to their size, may hurt millions of unwitting participants.
How to Protect Yourself from Google #
So what can you do to protect yourself from being manipulated when performing a simple search online? As we see it, the only current solution would be to use an alternative search engine such as DuckDuckGo, StartPage or Microsoft’s Bing.
Google services such as Google Photos, Google Drive, and even Gmail are down right data leeches with bottomless bellies to harvest everything you put on their platforms. The higher cost of Apple products and lesser quality applications have never looked better. Consider switching to and support those products.
Power corrupts, perhaps that was why Google’s original motto was “Don’t Be Evil“. Clearly an early realization of the company’s power to manipulate the public’s access to information. But they have succumbed to the lure that power brings. To shape the world as they see equitable, rather than allow freedom and the course of human evolution to take its natural course, no matter the outcome.
