Google's motto used to be "Don't be evil." But that was then. This is now.
This global giant has become your thought police, censoring what you write, communicate, search for -- essentially what you think. This is not some faroff problem: It's in your home.
1. We've just learned that the most popular email provider, Gmail, favors liberal candidates by marking fewer of their emails as spam, while more emails from conservative candidates are marked as spam, according to a new study examining emails sent in the six months leading up to the 2020 election.
I saw this on a site caled Reclaim the Net, which sends me a daily email for something like $15 a year, a pittance for the wealth of information this site digs up.
2. Reclaim the Net also reported that Google Docs will start flagging “potentially discriminatory or inappropriate language” and prompting users to make their writing “more inclusive and appropriate” on some of its plans.
3. Google, Inc., is the world's biggest censor. The company maintains at least nine different blacklists that impact our lives, generally without input or authority from any outside advisory group, industry association or government agency.
4. Moreover, has unveiled new creepy technology that can read movements and body language to help devices “understand the social content around them,” so they can make decisions without proactive human input.
I'm trying to de-google my life, but it's hard. Giving away its services seemingly for free, this gigantic company has insinutated itself into every corner of our lives. Reclaim the Net helps us break away with this information.
