Feedback sent to Google

Feedback sent to Google.

The recent firing of James Damore over his production of the Ideological Echo Chamber paper seems to me to have pushed the organisation over that boundary into “evil”.

For the first time since Google started, I have started to use other search engines.

I don’t want to.
I want Google to live up to “don’t be evil”.
I want Ray Kurzweil to achieve his objectives.

And that cannot be done at the expense of individual liberty responsibly expressed.

And I have read Damore’s paper and it seems to be sound and truthful, at least to a good first order approximation (and that seems to be about as close to truth as any of us can reasonably expect).

Please take this to the highest levels.

If individuals cannot speak what seems to be the case, then we are all at risk.

If a large organisation like Google can suspend individual accounts without any explanation or any recourse, then they have become the evil tyrant.

There is a test of reasonableness here, and Google seems to have failed that test, and failed badly in this instance.
