You remember? “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….” also applies to a cosmos other than Star Wars. The degrading of free speech inevitably leads to censorship and a societal purge of ideas that conflict with the latest evolution of political correctness. The 21st Century version of book burning has gone digital and automated using Artificial Intelligence that applies algorithm filters to exclude the free exchange of different views and accounts of historic analysis. The most partisan progressive cannot maintain that the liberal bias which has now become the hallmark of Google’s search results and news is based upon any objective standards of empirical information or fair and balanced reporting.
While it is easy to blame government gatekeepers with the power to remove critical content, the tech giants refuse to put their own houses in order and restore the original results based upon popular traffic.
Andrew Couts in Digital Trends wrote several years ago that Google proposes ‘451’ error code to signal Internet censorship, in honor of Ray Bradbury.
“Government-imposed online censorship has become increasingly prevalent over the past few years. And the current legislative trends from governments around the world point to a future filled with blocked websites. But simply stopping this from happening is only one part of the battle. When censorship does happen, we need a sign that clearly tells us that that’s the reason for a site’s inaccessibility.
Enter Tim Bray, a software developer at Google who has proposed a solution: a “451” error code that displays anytime you visit a site blocked by the government. The number 451 is in honor of late author Ray Bradbury, whose science fiction classic Fahrenheit 451, first published in 1950, warned of a dystopian world defined by government-imposed censorship (in the form of burning any house that contains books).”
Compare this effort with the recent Google update just created a big problem for anti-censorship tools, “App developers won’t be able to use Google to get around internet censorship anymore. The Google App Engine is discontinuing a practice called domain-fronting, which let services use Google’s network to get around state-level internet blocks.” Overseeing the fake news contrived reality coincides with furthering the interests of the globalist establishment.
Google is essentially part of the Deep State Intelligence Community; research the history of How The CIA Made Google. So what is the difference when a public company imposes their formula filter to block or conceal content that does not conform to their authoritarian pro government sentiments from an actual NSA, CIA of DOD psyops operation?
Robert Tracinski from the Federalists pens an insightful argument in his column, The Plug Must Be Pulled On Google’s Plan For Thought Control. Drawing his conclusion from the Gene Rodenberry Star Trek series, forecasts the objective of the Google controlled reality brainwashing that is being rolled out in earnest.
“In contrast to those who claim that Star Trek’s heroes were early Social Justice Warriors, it strikes me that the original Star Trek series produced a pointed parody of the SJWs — and of the technological enforcement of their creed — in the 1967 episode, “The Return of the Archons.”
What runs the whole society is a giant computer, an artificial intelligence programmed by the original Landru (who has been dead for six thousand years) to keep his utopian society going in perpetuity, and wirelessly connected to everybody’s brains to do their thinking for them.”
How does this utopia matrix come into being may not surprise the perceptive, but for the average internet user, most still do not care. Police system in place to eliminate, especially dangerous critical elite videos, from the public consciousness.
“More than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies around the world help police YouTube for extremist content, ranging from so-called hate speech to terrorist recruiting videos.
All of them have confidentiality agreements barring Google, YouTube’s parent company, from revealing their participation to the public, a Google representative told The Daily Caller on Thursday.
A handful of groups, including the Anti-Defamation League and No Hate Speech, a European organization focused on combating intolerance, have chosen to go public with their participation in the program, but the vast majority have stayed hidden behind the confidentiality agreements. Most groups in the program don’t want to be publicly associated with it, according to the Google spokesperson, who spoke only on background.”
No wonder that Google wants to bury transparency in favor of confidentiality. When the Wizard of Oz resides in an Alphabet paradise on top of Mountain View, CA why not restrict who can travel and transverse their yellow brick road. Tucker Carlson makes a salient and rational case in Google is squashing free speech, and it’s time we did something about it. Carlson said, “Google is the most powerful company in the history of the world. It’s the portal through which the bulk of our information flows. That means that if Google isn’t on the level, neither is our understanding of the world. To an unprecedented extend, Google controls reality. Google has already shown a disturbing willingness to distort reality for ideological ends.”
The symbolism of the 451 error code is not that it is a fault of solely a government endeavor but is an integral part of a tech quasi protector for the liberal ‘enlightened’ society. The Google culture is populated with progressives. James Bartholomew writes from the UK in The Spectator, What explains the idiocy of the liberal elite? It’s their education.
“Let’s try to explain to ordinary people what drives the liberal elite. The elite persists with some very strange and disturbing views. Are its members brainwashed, snobbish or just so remote from real life that they do not understand how things work? What is the pathology of liberal eliteness?
They are virtuous. They know best. They are the chosen ones. They have only a token belief in democracy. They expect and intend to prevail.”
Google is a prime example of a perverted mindset that validates the new book burning.
