Google Is a Terrorist Organization
Youtube is a threat to national security
Okay, I’ll admit it.
I went on Youtube and watched a Ben Shapiro video.
I know. Stupid me.
It was about how AOC has been crapping on Florida and its governor, while locking down her home state, then getting caught partying in Florida with her boyfriend.
Not a great look for her.
Shapiro made an even bigger fool of himself — nothing but ad hominem attacks. Completely childish.
That was Saturday.
On Sunday, I went on Youtube — which is owned by Google’s parent corporation, an illegal monopoly that has devoured more than 200 other businesses — to search for lectures about the Bible verse in Matthew that says “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
You’d think I’d be presented with sermons and talks about, oh, I don’t know, maybe Matthew 6:33?
Instead, because I’d watched a hate-mongery video by Shapiro, Google’s algorithms recommended a series of highly-divisive, libelous, pastor-bashing videos with high-conflict titles like:
“John Mark Comer doesn’t believe in the same god as the real God.”
“Is Matt Chandler preaching a false gospel?
“Francis Chan — the Anti-Christ or Satan himself?”
And then it hit me.
Google is a terrorist organization.
America, if you haven’t noticed, is coming apart at the seams.
The divide between right and left is growing so far apart that extremists are consolidating control of both the Republican and Democrat parties.
The far-left wants to lock everyone inside forever, while the far-right doesn’t even believe Covid exists.
Tens of millions of Americans no longer believe climate change is real.
Anxiety, depression, and pill-popping are rampant.
Shelter costs are crushing the poor and working class.
Suicide took over 44,000 lives last year.
Drug overdose deaths cracked 100,000 for the first time ever.
I’m kidding-not-kidding about that last one, but you get my point — hyper-individualist America is splintering.
Everyone is stressed and fearful all the time, buzzing with anxiety and worry about the future, and fighting and bickering about politics constantly.
And there are algorithms that are helping it along.
I know a guy who caught Covid early.
And caught it bad.
Kicked the crap out of him.
He nearly thought he was going to die.
Several months later, he still couldn’t walk up a single of stairs without losing his breath.
Fast-forward a year.
His entire family doesn’t believe in Covid.
It’s a plandemic. A hoax. A conspiracy to embed microchips in our arms.
They found “the truth” on Youtube.
My wife has a relative who’s an anti-vaxxer.
She also believes Donald Trump is still the President.
And that JFK will restore DJT to POTUS.
And that America is run by gay alien lizard Jew pedophiles based in Hilary’s pizza parlor.
She believes it all.
Because she lives on Youtube, and has a Youtube channel where she makes her own QAnon conspiracy theory videos, and her brain has turned to mush because an algorithm cares more about screen engagement than her mental health, marriage, children, career, or democracy.
As long as she keeps clicking, Google will keep radicalizing.
Youtube is the world’s second-largest search engine, right behind its parent company, Google.
Humanity incinerates more than 365 billion hours of life each year on Youtube. (That’s half a million lifetimes annually, for those counting.)
Sheer amount of time-wasting aside, Google/Youtube has a fundamental problem:
Its users are the product.
Google only makes money by selling user attention to advertisers.
So the key is to keep the user’s attention.
What’s the easiest way to keep user attention and rake in the cash — by recommending highly-accurate educational videos, or emotion-driven reaction-inciting propaganda that’s guaranteed to get shared and go viral?
Google has engineered its algorithm to wreck the world and make dat paper.
And it makes sense — Google is a giant anti-human monopoly whose sole fiduciary legal reason for existing is to extract wealth from society in order to deliver private profits to elite pockets at the expense of democracy.
Youtube has been doing this forever. Google has spent years purposely dragging its feet and has made money from:
What do you call a private entity that directly and knowingly profits from societal breakdown, violence, and thousands of deaths?
A terrorist organization.
And they will not stop until they are stopped.
After watching that stupid Ben Shapiro video and immediately seeing all those straight-up libelous accusations against high-character pastors like Chan, Chandler, and Comer, I immediately went onto Youtube, deleted my Shapiro history, and re-typed my search query.
All the divisive videos immediately disappeared from the search results.
Guess what I got instead?
Sermons about Matthew 6:33.
If there’s a call to action here, it’s this:
Don’t let algorithms determine what you watch, read, listen to, or think.
(And don’t let your kids anywhere near Youtube.)
Read this article on how to block all ads and keep algorithms from getting to know you more than your own spouse does.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Youtube when it delivers highly-accurate videos related to my search term.
But it rarely, if ever, does.
Instead, Google wants to recommend whatever will make them the most money — and that turns out to be highly emotional, highly negative, highly divisive, highly untruthful viral videos.
If the truth is what sets us free, it’s organizations like Google that are keeping us in chains.
The reality is that Google is an illegal monopoly that needs to be broken up. At the very least, it needs to be held criminally responsible for feeding tens of billions of hours of misinformation and disinformation to billions of people, contributing to hundreds of thousands of Covid deaths, massively undermining democracy around the world, and shredding the fabric of our already extremely fragile society.
Google could, of course, change its algorithm overnight.
Instead of dividing, it could unite us.
Instead of confusing us, it could educate us.
Instead of sowing chaos, it could create order.
But where’s the profit in that?
