    Google Admits In Court Documents That It Believes Free Speech Is “Disastrous” For Society

    https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-11-...r-society.html

    (Natural News) Every year, nearly half the world’s population uses Google. According to Internet Live Stats, Google processes over 40,000 search queries every second. In that same second, internet users view over 76,000 YouTube videos, a streaming service designed by Google. Across the globe there are now over two billion active android devices, a mobile operating system designed by Google. Google uses these services to track users and collect information about them.

    It’s now reality: Google has monopoly power over the flow of information. Google has control over the dissemination and manipulation of information around the world. Google algorithms can either suppress information or promote it. Because of this, Google Inc. is susceptible to political and ideological censorship, affecting billions of users who use Google services annually. With this power, Google interferes with elections, business, and people’s livelihoods. There are industries and political agendas that influence Google, industries that will do whatever it takes to shut down truthful speech and manipulate how people think.

    Google refuses to be held accountable to First Amendment standards

    Google is not a neutral platform, so search results are engineered to highlight the viewpoints that matter most to Google executives and their cult culture. Rich and influential people, emboldened by their special interests, practically lobby Google to push their agendas while suppressing any dissent or competition on the web. While some ideologies are popularized by Google, others are pushed to the shadows, de-monetized and mocked.

    Google is under fire for censoring conservative website PragerU. Very few organizations have the legal firepower to fight back against Google, but PragerU has taken Google to court. Google’s true intentions are being exposed. In a statement filed with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Google argues that government regulation would have “disastrous practical consequences.”

    In their statement, Google makes it clear they do not want to be held to the standard of the First Amendment. Google refuses to change for its users; Google refuses to guarantee users an equal platform for freedom of speech. The anti-American behemoth refuses to enforce the First Amendment across their services because this “would undermine important content regulation.” Google stated, “If they are bound by the same First Amendment rules that apply to the government, YouTube and other service providers would lose much of their ability to protect their users against offensive or objectionable content — including pornography, hate speech, personal attacks, and terrorist propaganda.”

    Imagine if this were 100 years ago, and the Post Office scanned everything you said in Postal Mail, including sensitive and classified information, AND, they censored you heavily. Would the same defense of Post Office is allowed to censor who ever it wants, and take your information, such as Business Plans, and copy and steal your ideas? Would that all still be okay under Private Platform Censorship?

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an

    The internet works without google. The internet is nothing more than a connection between computers that signals are sent across using a certain protocol.

    Yes. But Google's algorhythms do affect search criteria on many search engines other than Google's own. And to the extent that the government is behind that, Google's contempt for the First Amendment becomes a real problem.

    You come here, not to mention the majority of other sites.

    Every Google customer is an affiliate, too.

    It is like an information pyramid scheme.

    You might be surprised how many sites use Google to for hosting their servers.

    ---

    Either way, the point was missed, and yes, the Post Office is part of the Govt so it should have no authority to censor mail.

    The big point was that Google, the #1 search engine on the planet, strongly believes that Free Speech is "Disastrous" for Society. Do you really want a company with that much power over how people gain information to have the power and authority to censor?

    How do you know? Do they actually publish a list of every site they host? Do you have a way to detect if a search engine is using their algorhythms? Or do you never search; do you directly type the address to every site you go to?
