The Google ‘Oracle’ – An Upside-Down Paradigm
I think the ‘philosophy’ is backwards.
Why isn’t Google keeping US ‘happy’?
In a free market it is NOT a corporation which decides which product to use; rather, the consumers who buy their products.
Google has the paradigm backwards, don’t you think?
There are four major issues:
1) They are positioning themselves as ‘knowledge brokers’ and are trying to insert the ideas of ownership and privatization into the Noosphere. No one person (even artificial ‘humans’ which corporations are) or group has the right to lay claim on knowledge. It must remain free to everyone.
2) Their manipulation of search results. I now have to use several different search engines to get my work done since they’ve moved to Search. It’s not the job of a search engine to decide for me what’s important! Not even to ‘protect’ me.
3) Their efforts to insert themselves into the noosphere as arbiters of the conceptual landscape. This is known as #KBT Knowledge Based Trust.
4) The upper leadership belongs to what I call the ‘wrecking crew’. Google is actively participating in the premature globalization, social engineering, and weaponized technologization we see all around us.
