The Dystopian future of the techie collective dream scape.
The mathematical formula modeling the existence of Google becomes exceedingly and tediously complex in calculating a chain of multiple variables. The result is arcane and bizarre, and a sardonic testament to the inability of the corporate leadership to grasp the essence of their digital galaxy, much less enact any reliable means of control on a vast entity which operates in a perpetual mode of controlled chaos.
However, the group of software engineer bosses are still brilliant programmers and manipulators of data at their core, and can will and conjure any reality within their electronic progeny, even amid the bug and bot infestation plaguing the search engine infrastructure, which makes a Seattle car camping caravan seem like a sunny Sunday afternoon ice cream social in comparison. Widespread technical issues and the blatant promotion of a one-sided political agenda can be overlooked by the masses, when the busiest website in the world is called upon by 2 billion unique visitors per day. The numbers and audacity are absolutely stunning, with the latter tendency vehemently unforgivable as the furtive tactics to obscure and force conservative ideology from the Silicon Valley gun-free zone campus is now smack dab in the vortex of a public controversy and media feast.
The esteemed team at the Wall Street Journal originally published an insightful story on the alleged toxic corporate culture boiling over to a point where a pair of employees were apparently fired for their right of center beliefs. In turn, Fox News does a fabulous job of calling attention to the brazenly unethical and forceful company policy manifesting itself into intimidation and other deplorable methods towards the treatment of conservative workers in creating a workplace environment akin to pickpocketing for Fagin. Google receives an A+ rating for pay and benefits and an F- for anyone in the same parsec of the Trump nebula.
Here are some of the variables in formulating the Google mathematical model- annual revenue $100 billion, 60 billion unique visitors per month, 80% H1-B visa workers, parent company Alphabet, Inc., ambiguous community “terms and conditions”, documented cases of altering and manipulating conservative content, Google ads subversive policy, the structure of the Google news feed, the careless handling of sensitive data, collecting and storing user data, selling user data.
While the tech culture has been traditionally dominated by a liberal bias, the growing number of immigrant workers hired by the company to cut cost overhead, only skews the figures. The isolated conservative souls who dare to share their political allegiance within the cavernous workplaces face at the very least instantaneous ridicule and a heavy dosage of group think threatening their individuality. Basically, the foundation of the corporation rivals the eusocial structure of an insect hive, with a central directive from the queen passed down to the workers and finally reaching the drones in the dark and decrepit enclaves of raw bureaucracy. Those who champion Reagan or Churchill are eventually forced out by instinctive attrition, rather than conscious thought. The inhumane and robotic response to a conflicting perspective threatening the consensus is especially chilling, considering the innovation produced by free thinkers dominating the internet marketplace in keeping Google a brand name.
Speaking of dichotomy, the well-compensated executives, coders, and affluent voter majority shareholders adhering to liberal politics absolutely makes no sense considering the best interest for fiscal concerns and taxes. Sure, the existence of liberal elitists is a cultural phenomenon spearheaded by George Soros, and the irony of the McCain-Feingold Act in actually limiting more leftist political campaigns than conservative efforts, does not explain the hysteria of borderline socialist dogma sweeping through the tech culture. But the bias does exist, and there is ample evidence to support the idea that Google hates conservatives and is plotting a strategy to be more than simply an important resource for the 2020 election.
For the rare openly conservative employees who survive the next decade, they are certainly guaranteed to have front row seats in witnessing the biggest self-driving vehicle wreck of the century, as the end game for the advertising agency behemoth with influence in virtually every aspect of society and industry does not possess any noteworthy positive connotations. In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, one is given optional access to their online dossier which includes every deleted email, which on the surface is a kind gesture. However, when the pathologically flawless digital memory includes the resurfacing of heated drunken message threads with exes, the offering is more like twisting the blade of the knife in a virtual emotional mood. Combined with the the prevalence of software algorithms flagging conservation end users, switching to an alternative such as Duckduckgo.com seems like a wise move.
As the entire tech universe heedlessly chooses to alienate 50 percent of the American voter, it is only natural that the intolerance and linear indecency within the software and social networking workplace overflows onto the general population, and with the younger demographics not knowing any difference, this is an unsettling reality. In battling a complete absence of accountability from a corporation which is ironically tone deaf to the Constitution, the average consumer must develop a vigilant response to a business model that is contingent upon individual engagement.
While “google it” has replaced “look it up” in everyday life, the fear is that unchecked ideology spurred by software precision will make political debate obsolete, by eliminating open dialogue through trendiness, and not a formulated set of opinions, and with a complete disregard for reason. Just ask the two brave techies who challenged the status quo of the swarm by simply sticking to their beliefs. This may not end well.
