boycott google

We reasonably expect that our service providers are not secretively working against its consumers/users and reporting search results to governments. In this case, if a Chinese citizen did a Google search which included marked keywords their name, GPS location and phone number were forwarded to their government. It is well-known that this then would eventually result in imprisonment and they will now be forced into slave labor to make consumer goods so that Wal-Mart can sell a toaster for $6.

When Google executives worried that the memo would somehow break out to the media, they then attempted to suppress the story by threatening emails, using technology to know who complied internally.

I think this needs to stop. And by “stop”, I’d suggest an all-out boycott of Google.

DuckDuckGo Steps Up

I see that today the plucky DuckDuckGo.com search engine alternative has obviously read the news as well.

The Corbett Report

Please watch this video. If you’re familiar with the character from the popular television show The Colbert Report, you might accidentally think that these are the same people (they’re not). Note the slight difference in spelling.

Suppression of alternate media

As described in the video and demonstrated by the search engine comparison, Google has been caught manipulating the results in such a way that they are manufacturing public opinion. The days of valuing Google as an objective provider of search results are over; they’re no longer the “good guy”.

If you specifically depend upon independent media as opposed to the national media, GoodGopher.com has that option.

Change your search provider

Follow my lead and change your search provider today. Don’t wait for things to get worse.

  1. Oh I read this post with a great deal of pleasure. I’ve divested myself of almost every Google product in my life. Unfortunately, I need to keep it on my phone because of an emergency notification app I need [bushfires in Australia]. And guess what, I’ve been a happy Duckduckgo users for months. Don’t miss Google at all. 🙂
