The politically charged environment emanating from the south Bay Area and challenging the very fundamental notion of physics in skewing light and liberty 270 degrees towards an extreme westerly direction and ultimately creating a dual existence based on delusion and intolerance, just received an infusion of meticulous innovation. No, the stirring and inspiring echoes from a Steve Kerr pregame rally cry filled with Marxist inclinations did not inspire legions of doughy techies to overrun local gyms and outdoor basketball courts with vigor and revolutionary fervor. Instead, a mundane, but sneakily nefarious narrative is playing out in the hierarchy of the tech empire, and the future of data analytics is on the line, at least from the troubling possibility of statistics and mathematical formulas being deliberately tainted by politicization, which leads to obvious question of how patriotically loyal will artificial intelligence entities be to the Constitution?
While thankfully not adorning savage body point in waging a shirtless protest against the Second Amendment and armed with pitchforks and torches, the corporate leadership of tech conglomerate Salesforce recently fired a salvo of implacable ideology across the bow of the Constitution in articulating an emphatic “No!” to customers attempting to market certain makes and models of firearms with company software products. The bold and misguided directive by the purveyor of Customer Management Relationship technology, an important and necessary tool for businesses and organizations, is solid testimony to the reality that the tech realm has been inflicted by radicalism, where lucrative revenues collide with leftist dogma in creating a fascinating and surreal dichotomy. If a high fever sickness of conflict of interest was not enough, the company effectively cornered the marketplace of retailer smart data by purchasing analytics giant Tableau software for a cool $15.7 billion. The breathtaking deal through the transfer of public stock, provides Salesforce with an increased infrastructure of AI modeled software engines in processing data, reports TechCrunch, a monumental step in remaining on the cutting edge of the industry. The company has already enjoyed a substantially prosperous year, netting $13.2 billion, according to search engine Duckduckgo.com.
Gun manufactures and retailers, who are current customers of Tableau will have to endure the painstaking waiting game of learning their ultimate fate in how the new leadership will handle firearm policy, while the rest of the nation watches the pending saga with vested interest as to the possible damaging ramifications of regressive bureaucratic shackles. As the implementation of analytics makes the impossible an obscure concept, the course of action Salesforce authorities choose to take will no doubt have a substantial impact on the near future, as digital creations possess a perfect, yet easily amended memory (through furtively skillful tactics).
As Bank of America set a precedent in the financial industry by adopting a retched stance on specific civilian gun manufacturing business models, the tech universe has deployed a vehement contempt for the Second Amendment and reasonable self-defense beginning with the insufferable practices of the social networks in drafting ambiguous “Terms and Conditions” limiting and banning users, all while claiming the platforms are bastions for the free exchange of ideas and viewpoints. It’s all about control. The treatment of advertisers is even more deplorable if possible. Salesforce is now paving the way for a bias to dictate client relationships by penalizing legal protocol, a tactic along with blatant mischaracterization and the spreading of disinformation which activists utilize in an attempt to dissolve the fibers of the republic.
The right to the refusal of service is simple enough on the outer layers, but when challenged in the legal arena can devolve into an expensive and arduous battle, especially when constitutional elements are introduced. While Silicon Valley employs some brilliant minds, the inability to see the big picture is simply a microcosm of the billion dollar jaded mentality of “I do it, because I can.”. In the case of Salesforce the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and similar to the egregious oversight and disaster of the self-driving vehicle, or the overengineering of eloquent mechanical reliable systems directly leading to tragedies, the brass and voting majority of stock holders will hopefully discover that time is an efficient inquisitor, as truth always seems to prevail.
