G👁️👁️GLE - Modern Day Empire
Hello TWS users, let's chat a bit about the strange company that Google LLC has become, shall we?
Google, once an internet search engine company, now owns the vast majority of the search engine market, 90%, and tracks users on around 86% of fifty thousand most popular websites. That's big money. They are so rich and powerful that they routinely brush off multi-billion dollar fines as if pesky mosquitoes buzzing the ear. One can hardly finish learning of the latest scandal generated by said company without another popping up like a game of unethical Whac-A-Mole.

Ironic that the company who once admonished the world: "Don't be evil", has in turn done so much evil themselves. Consider them letting the security forces that keep them safe in their fancy office buildings go homeless due to insufficient pay in the Silicon Valley area, for example. Does that sound like a company that cares about people?
Find that surprising? Don't, because double standards are the norm at Alphabet Inc./Google LLC. Let's take a closer look at some of the things that Google is into these days and make a few wild assumptions, just for the fun of it.
I am indeed more than a little irritated with Google, as are millions of others. This especially after the search giant took it upon themselves to dictate truth to the world; dishing out search results that they deem relevant (supposedly), rather than the actual information one is searching for, regardless of how precise one's search terms are.
Because of Google's non-stop meddling, information that used to be easy to find now becomes a frustrating exercise in futility, searching for the proverbial needle in the haystack. Their search engine algorithm manipulations, which they falsely claim makes their search tool better, is actually about making them rich; serving up search results subtly suited for the individual user; all this in hopes that one will click on something that will make them money, like the good little automatons they wish us to be.
Google has its hands all over the A.I. field. They are leading researchers and developers of artificial intelligence. This should be a good thing, considering how much money and resources that they can afford on such a quest. However, taking into account the twisted and hypocritical ways of Google's seedy past, I don't feel too good about the 'Search Company Gone Wild' having a monopoly on artificial intelligence, along with most everything else. They are even taking it upon themselves to develop "Ethical Principles" for AI systems. Nothing unusual about one of the most unethical companies in the world creating the ethical laws of AI systems, nothing at all. In fact, it fits in perfectly with Google's hypocritical ethical history. Google, the company that tells us not to be evil and in almost the same breath secretly sets out to create custom search engine technology to enable communist China to more efficiently track and oppress its citizens, while simultaneously censuring their internet.
In 2013 Google acquired several advanced robotics companies, including one of the most advanced humanoid military robotics companies around, Boston Dynamics, and it appeared that our Google overlords were intent on creating real-life terminators. However, fortunately for us, Andy Rubin, the vice president of engineering who ran the effort, called Replicant, left Google in 2014 after harassment allegations. Because of this their Death Robot plans were delayed and fizzled, ending with many of the companies being sold off. However, Google soon revamped its robotics division and still continues to develop advanced robotics for our future. I wonder if they will spy on us while they are doing our housework presumably free of charge?
Google is throwing a lot of money at quantum computing, to put it lightly. When Google throws money at something, that tells me that they very much want to twist the technology to their own selfish desires. I strongly doubt at this point that they do anything for the common good of humanity, HBU? An efficient quantum computer will be a game-changer; with Google employing some of the best social engineering tactics ever; capable of pretending to be our friends whilst scanning our email for data mining purposes, as well as stealing everyone's Wi-Fi network information with their Google Earth vans; these considerations make it difficult to believe that Google LLC will use the ultimate code-cracking capabilities of an advanced quantum machine to keep us safely tucked in at night.
Google has a venture now to solve the problem of death. Yes, Google wants to be immortal; they want to rule the world and all its data, becoming gods of the new age. I am only half-joking. Large amounts of money are funneled into research to slow down, and ultimately, arrest the aging process. That is not the only medical branch of Google's seemingly endless conquest of everything. They also want to start an international DNA database. Google wants that ultimate information source--our DNA.
If you're like me, this begins to paint a disturbing picture indeed, this also seems to support the muse that Google wants to 'rule the world.' By combining A.I. machine learning with quantum computing technology and advanced robotics; factor in their solving of death obsession, then complete the thought by pondering their shark grin desire to take part in developing an international DNA database--it all clearly spells out: world domination as our immortal masters.
Sitting here now, thinking about Google owning most of the known internet, their wishy-washy business ethics, their questionable intentions, extreme wealth, and their influence over governments. I begin to realize: It's only a matter of time before they set loose the first swarm of Quantum A.I. Enhanced Super Soldiers (complete with Google analytics, of course) to begin their worldwide coup.
