Is it just a misunderstanding to think that “Google is Evil”?

GOOGLE-INVESTIGATIONLink to this page:  http://wp.me/p4e1uX-1hM

Is Google getting a bad rap for no reason? Are poor people and poor companies just jealous of Google’s profits? How did Google get in so much trouble?

In 1969 a senior administrator confirmed a budget for four guys in California to try to create a system to put offices on an electronic leash. They connected a few University offices and ARPANET was born.

That turned into the INTERNET and now GOOGLE and their VC’s control most of it. The dream of creating an electronic leash to every living human has been achieved. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Let’s discuss the reasons why people think “Google is evil” and see if it is all just a
misunderstanding.

Here is the latest list, compiled from the INTERNET, of things that people write that they are upset at Google about:

- “Google executives are rich elitist Frat/Sorority people seeking world control for their beliefs.” Is this true?

- “Google venture capital investors in Silicon Valley are rich elitist Frat/Sorority people seeking world control for their beliefs.” Is this true?

- “Google forces medium and low income people out of their homes wherever they have offices.” Is this true?

- “Google lobbyists and operatives bribe politicians to get laws made that only benefit Google Executives and their VC’s”. Is this true?

- “Google was created as a front for the NSA and actually IS the NSA.” Is this true?

- “Google exists to harvest personal privacy data by seeming to offer free things to entice you in but sucking all of your information out of you without you noticing while you are in.” Is this true?

- “Google has a vast group of people in Silicon Valley called the “UI/UX SWAT TEAM” that spends all day playing mind games on test subjects to see what the best way is to trick people into moving their mouse this way, or that way, in order to control the public when they are in any Google property.” Is this true?

- “Google uses all of your information against you with subliminal marketing to make you buy things you don’t actually need.” Is this true?

- “Google is a secret political agenda voter manipulation device to get everybody to vote a certain way by manipulating search results so it looks like everybody else is doing the same thing.” Is this true?

- “Google stores surveillance information on citizens in huge digital warehouses.” Is this true?

_ “Google rigs it’s search results depending on who their investors like, and don’t like.” Is this true?

- “Google never actually erases your personal information.” Is this true?

- “Google “Maps”, “Earth”, “Loon”, “self-driving cars”, “robots”, etc. all are about capturing human activity, logging and storing it for their profit and control.” Is this true?

- “Google and their VC’s fight for “immigration laws” so they can import more cheap workers from offshore”. Is this true?

- “Google harvests your life data and sells it to marketing and data services so than can digest it and sell it back to you, in sinister subliminal ways, as products.” Is this true?

- “Google creates a TED-world glazed-eye glass bubble around all of it’s staff so their workers are trained to think that the technology they are building is for the greater good when it is really for privacy-profiting and belief steering.” Is this true?

- “Google Glass is the world’s most compact spy-system designed to spy on you and get you to spy on those around you.” Is this true?

- “Google demeans women. It hires very few of them. The ones it hires are put in window-dressing positions. Google has replicated and distributed the words: “Ho, Bitch, Shorty, Lttle Girl, Baby, Skank, Ratchet” and other minimizing words that demean women more than any other publisher in the world.” Is this true?

- “Google’s user disclosure statements are made to be so complex that only a PHD could understand them, so no Google user understands what they are agreeing to.” Is this true?

- “Google wants all workers “perception-controlled” in transit on their buses and boats, at the office with in-building stores, food, snacks and media and after-hours with Google online media.” Is this true?

- “Google barges were actually something far more insidious than just “floating stores”, but they got found out and shut down.Is this true?

- Let discuss:
