Project Veritas caught a Google exec on video admitting to manipulating search results to steer their users’ behavior toward their own political motives. Namely, they aim to prevent Trump from being elected again.
Okay, so what? Why should an Anarchist care about an election?
Maybe this issue is not as important to me personally, but if the people at Google are actively working to steer my behavior and that of the millions of others using their search tool every day, in what other ways are they intentionally manipulating my behavior?
I want to believe I am in control of my own destiny. That I am free to make informed choices. But this revelation calls that into question. It makes me take a second look at the ways in which I have abdicated personal responsibility to Google’s software. It is time to look for alternatives.
That was my show-prep for the Free Talk Live episode broadcast last night live on the radio waves of over 200 radio stations. Have a listen.
Last night’s episode featured Johnson and Ian and me, all three of us fresh back from the New Hampshire Freedom Festival. It was a historic one, as we discuss early on in the show. Ian came back after being banned. Johnson gave a brief history lesson on Che Guevara, and I talked about this breaking Project Veritas story revealing some of the questionable behavior at Google. It is a little too close to the Ministry of Truth from 1984.
