The Ridiculous Façade of 'Ethical' Monopolists and the Ludicrous Media Coverage That Parrots Their Lies

Summary: Corporate trolling by corporate actors is not a new strategy; they try to portray themselves as a force for good, whereas communities are supposedly unruly, racist, sexist and so on; this video discusses some new examples from the weekend's news

YESTERDAY we mentioned the common misconception that unscrupulous Google and racist IBM are somehow our 'friends', unlike Microsoft. In reality, however, they're just a different kind of foe. They don't truly care about our freedom and they only ever pretend to value ethics.



"Ethics don't get passed in a top-bottom fashion. They're being demanded from the bottom by grassroots activism, not Public Relations firms employed by the rich and connected to corporate media (for puff pieces to be seeded/planted)."In the video above I allude to reports such as this one about Google and several about Microsoft, from media that's habitually bribed by Bill Gates and media that basically amplifies face-saving lies from Microsoft officials [1, 2], e.g. this passage: "The photos were taken down globally from Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, on Friday — the 32nd anniversary of the event. A Microsoft spokesman said they were taken offline by mistake, attributing the removal to “human error.” The images reappeared around the world — outside of China — on Saturday."

Microsoft NaziSo Microsoft censored not only for China inside China (removing history) but also for China outside China. This is the same company that profits from racism and shows no remorse for it.

In the case of Google, it takes quite the audacity to claim any sort of empathy for women. Google paid millions of dollars in secret to hide abuses against women by Google's top executives [1, 2]. "That Google is stirring that up is an indication that they are wishing to distract from other matters," an associate of ours noted.

Generally speaking, beware of the idea that sociopaths and career-climbing psychopaths are about ethics. At the EPO we've long seen Benoît Battistelli trying to paint himself as champion of "diversity" while surrounding himself by a French cabal; António Campinos is just as bad.

Ethics don't get passed in a top-bottom fashion. They're being demanded from the bottom by grassroots activism, not Public Relations firms employed by the rich and connected to corporate media (for puff pieces to be seeded/planted).

"Microsoft, a rather new corporation, may not have matured to the position where it understands how it should act with respect to the public interest and the ethics of the marketplace."

--U.S. District fudge Stanley Sporkin
