Ironically, the companies that increasingly draw us to virtual realities are reinventing physical space, as well.
Talk about Google being a ‘monopoly’ is an attempt to make tech giants into scapegoats for our wider frustrations with the world.
Google shows what ‘Silicon Valley progressivism’ means: being the Left’s enforcers in the culture wars, in exchange for dispensation for economic sins.
Science-based thinking is a valuable tool: it tells us what we can do. But it cannot say a word about what we ought to do.
The old bigots are swiftly aging out of influence, while the already meager influence of the new racists, out of all proportion to the attention they have attracted, is continuing to wane.
Artwork mocking Google for its oppressive censorship is popping up all over the Los Angeles area, near Google’s office in Venice, California.
The Google memo controversy could tear up the implicit social contract we’ve all accepted with the big technology companies to whom we entrust our data.
A myriad of distinguished professors and social scientists have already confirmed what James Damore wrote in his Google memo: men and women are measurably different.
It’s not yet a week since James Damore’s internal Google memo was published by the media, but thanks to them, his name is forever tied to sexism.
Four years ago Dave Eggers wrote ‘The Circle,’ a novel about a tech giant and social media company that destroys lives by eradicating privacy and our sense of personal identity. It’s starting to look increasingly like a work of nonfiction.
This indicates that not just the gentler enforcement mechanisms of the current regime, but in fact the structure of the regime itself, is breaking down.
While firing an employee for penning an internal memo expressing scientific truths about human biology, Google has been funding efforts to protect the speech of child sex traffickers.
Ultimately, federal law places every employer and employee in the same no-win situation as Google: lawsuit if you don’t have enough protected class employees, lawsuit if you try overtly to hire them.
James Damore can present a prima facie case of illegal retaliation from Google: he engaged in protected activity by opposing several discriminatory practices, and was fired from his job.
To be ready for dictatorship, people have to embrace its habits and practices voluntarily, or at least show little resistance. Google is doing its part.
James Damore’s firing surely serves as a warning to anyone who might subvert the utterly inflexible pieties of modern progressivism.
