Google’s slogan used to be “don’t be evil.” It was a good slogan, one that everyone other than the Hitlers (or Maos) among us could get behind. Then, in 2015, Google changed course and changed its motto to “do the right thing.” That change, while it might seem innocuous, is the change from which all our current problems stem. It’s what transformed Google from a productivity-enhancing company that represented the best of what America’s innovative economy had to offer into an abominable corporation with far from benign motives. In effect, it’s why you should boycott Google.
Why is that? Because there’s a huge difference between “don’t be evil” and “do the right thing.” The “don’t be evil frame of mind is the capitalist one. Under that frame of action, a business works to improve its product and focus on business, not politics or social justice. Sure, it shies away from reprehensible actions, but otherwise it leaves conceptions of what is “best” for society out of the picture and instead just focuses on doing what businesses do best: making money.
The “do the right thing” mindset is wholly different. Under that framework, businesses are supposed to focus not on business, but on society as a whole. It means that, rather than focusing on delivering a product of value to customers and returns on capital to shareholders, businesses are somehow supposed to use their power to do what is best for society. If a coffee shop or health food store had that motto, it would be wrongheaded but not necessarily dangerous. In the case of Google, a hugely powerful company, however, it is quite dangerous because Google actually has the resources to put those social justice ideas into action.
The result of the “do the right thing” shift has been Google using its power to push far-left policies. It downgrades and blacklists conservative sites, shifted millions of votes to leftist candidates, kicked Parler off the Google Play store, turned down contracts with the Pentagon, and donates to leftist causes, including BLM.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
