We could all stop using Google tomorrow, but whatever takes its place would become just as bad. We need systemic reform, not boycotts.

That's the reality. We all love the philosophy of Duckduckgo but it's a shitty search engine. However you can still use Google with private browsing, vpns, etc. and not use their services like Gmail, and use Protonmail instead. Things of that nature.

I hate how fucking invasive they are. On my new phone I can't login and out of Google anymore I actually have to remove my profile on the phone. And when I login again then it resets all the other stuff I turned off to minimize tracking and I have to turn all that shit off again. It got to the point where I've disabled and/or removed most all of their apps and replace them with 3rd party ones instead.

almost feel like clicking that "report inappropriate predictions" but I feel like Google's predictive AI is dead on accurate with this one.

Now try it with "Donald Trump is"

If only there were some nationwide organization that could regulate massive monolithic companies.

Hillary for President, Chelsea for Vice President, Bill for UN Ambassador!


I honestly think they're all going away.

It wouldn't surprise me if our government was ok with it as long as our spies can watch everything being searched in China. "They're gonna be warrantlessly observed by their own government anyway..."

The European social democracies have surpassed the US on many levels including political representation, happiness, health, education, etc. You're even twice as likely in those European countries to raise yourself out of poverty than in the US. The USA is falling behind in these areas, and our worship of pure capitalism is a large part of the reason.

QFT...

"More evidence of the rot which has taken over at the core of our neo-feudalistic version of capitalism. Ethics are meaningless to the rich and powerful when profit is concerned, and they all know they'll get away with a slap on the wrist, if even that. Bernard Madoff is officially the last Wall Street or Silicon Valley loser who will ever face jail time. Same holds for the war criminals of the Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump administrations. The Constitution is irrelevant when larger neocon/neolib foreign policy goals are at play. The only form of accountability even possible now is the public's will to enforce upon our elites. How many of you will stop using Google, YouTube, Gmail? "

Neo-feudalism. An excellent way to sum up the state of affairs in the world.
