The more one analyzes it, the situation with Google makes it seem like Google must be a product of the People’s Republic of China. It aims toward the same end, total control of information and an ability to publicly slander or praise citizens based on their degree of compliance.
Google enforces its will by leveraging its dominance — 92% of US searches go through its site — through what its algorithms reward.
For example, Google likes capitalized titles, certain vocabulary, select page layouts, and other tricks of the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) trade. In addition, Google has begun punishing people for not using Google’s standards for mobile web pages:
This is monopolistic behaviour. Microsoft once got forced to not push Internet Explorer hard on their customers, which they were bundling with Windows. This is exactly the same situation: Google are trying to force people to use their AMP technology by virtue of how popular their search engine is.
In the future, Google will have a “no hate” or “politeness” policy that will exclude any pages that assert anything other than good old-fashioned bourgeois universal tolerance, permissiveness, and libertinism.
That standard will accept Desmond is Amazing the preteen dancing transvestite, but not pages that point out too clearly the high relationship between transgenderism and mental health problems. It will not accept nationalists, or those who do not favor enough the globalism, diverse, and multicultural state.
AMP represents the first step toward this world. Google wants to create a Chinese-style user score and to collect those users to whom it can advertise because they have already shown that they are obedient and compliant. To this end, Google uses AMP to collect user data:
When you use the Google AMP Viewer, Google and the publisher that made the AMP page may each collect data about you.
Watch for Google checkout and other e-commerce related services to start displaying something like the Chinese social credit score for all users:
By 2020, everyone in China will be enrolled in a vast national database that compiles fiscal and government information, including minor traffic violations, and distils it into a single number ranking each citizen.
This will be done by private industry, so it will not fall afoul of government regulations. Since Google is headquartered in the hugbox of Silicon Valley, it will punish anything but Leftist enough views.
In other words, Google will be able to continue behind the “private companies can do whatever they want” while being a monopolist and acting like a public utility, since at this point search engines are the new phonebook.
Conservatives might want to start thinking about how to bust this company. For starters, it is a monopoly and it is manipulating the market in its favor; in the future, it will be acting like a credit bureau, collecting data about users and giving them a score. Either theory provides a reason for regulating Google.
It has become more clear, however, that in the future conservatives will need a parallel society. We need our own search engines, social media, e-commerce, and publishing systems dedicated to free speech. Until we get those, we will be at the mercy of neurotic coastal Leftists and their dreams of world rule.
