The company that once admonished the world “Don’t Be Evil” not only removed that phrase as their main slogan, but has become a direct threat to freedom on an unprecedented scale.
Google has been at the center of attempting to enable the military-industrial complex by participating in AI weapons of war (Project Maven), over which some of their own employees resigned in protest, as well as various human rights violations regarding censorship in China.
As our regular readers know, Google issued a recent site-wide ban on Activist Post’s 10-year participation in their AdSense advertising partnership, which they’ve done with other established sites, as they attempt to defund any form of legitimate dissent.
But it is their dominance over information itself, not just monetization, through their search engine algorithm that might be the most insidious, as it chooses winners and losers within the free market of ideas. This memory-holing and suppression has been exposed time and again by researchers who have compared search results between Google and even other established search engines, exposing their de-ranking mechanism. The larger agenda of control has also been revealed by Google whistleblowers like Zach Vorhies in this must-see interview with Spiro Skouras.
However, real solutions can only emerge by building better systems that offer competition by decentralizing data, offering privacy, and putting users in control over the information they wish to receive. Fortunately, that has finally arrived.
We are happy to report that the Presearch decentralized search engine is live and it is working exactly as promised. We can even find our own articles again!
Getting honest search results is reason enough to support this project, but Presearch also offers a tokenized ecosystem where you can earn cryptocurrency rewards just for searching. Once you have met the required level, you can also convert your Presearch tokens into Bitcoin if you wish. This aspect is not required, however, so for those who are uninterested in this feature, you can simply ignore it and search as you normally would, knowing that you will find what you are actually looking for.
Please watch the video below with the founder of Presearch, Colin Pape, to discover the full range of this innovative new approach to taking back control over information. As Colin mentions in the video, this is just the beginning for the many ways in which we need to boycott Google as they dominate search, e-mail, maps, video, operating system, news and more. Despite being fined billions for their practices, and even recently becoming part of a class action lawsuit for allegedly tracking users even while in Incognito mode, they still hold the #1 position. This needs to change.
