I may have hinted at this on occasion in the comment sections of certain blog posts, but upon some recent developments, it is important to go into detail with this in the form of a blog.
Google is the world’s most prominent search engine and, as a result, it serves as a source for billions of people when it comes to finding information online. As such, Google has a responsibility to use its platform wisely and to aggregate with fair results. In the talks these days of the threats of repealing net neutrality, many are seemingly ignoring how Google’s latest “fake news” algorithms are going beyond just hiding false stories in their search results. As documented on a number of occasions, it is using its website to deliberately censor alternative websites and actively promote lies of the mainstream media. We have had this problem for a while with purposeful Google pages promoted by a scornful psychic to attack our website’s reputation. Other websites, including my two of my favorites New Prophecy and World Socialist Web Site, are combatting this issue as well. The reason I’m writing this now is that a straw is breaking and its about to spill itself all over silicon valley in the near future.
Karma will come back to haunt the Google executives in ways they cannot currently comprehend. I’ve mentioned that Wikileaks would expose a lot of their corruption in a previous prediction, but that is only the smallest extent of what is about to hit their door step within a matter of months, maybe even weeks. It has already started with this recent scandal on censoring conservative opinions in their workforce and it will get worse for them as blowback from both the left and the right makes itself known to them. They will see what happens when you drive content down the results pages because the powers that be tell you to. No matter how much they may proclaim themselves as kings of the internet, emperors have no clothes in this sphere and they will see that when they are de-pantsed and exposed for all to see. It will take them off their perch and either force a change internally or see their company’s implosion come in a couple of years time. No matter how mighty they are, those that are corrupt will always fall.
