CLELAND: E-totalitarianism at Google

Why does Google do the things they do? Why did Microsoft team up with NBC and come up with MSNBC? Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely!

Information behemoth scorns ethics protecting privacy and property


Illustration: Google by Linas Garsys for The Washington Times

Google Inc.’s “Don’t Be Evil” slogan is seductive but misleading. It is the lowest business ethics standard ever devised, excusing everything Google does short of evil. Google isn’t evil - but neither is it ethical.

While perceptions of the world’s erstwhile No. 1 brand remain exceptionally strong, Google’s ethical blind spots regarding privacy and property rights are beginning to erode the public’s trust and eventually could threaten the company’s market domination. Anyone who follows Google closely knows that the company is a serial scandal machine. One of the world’s most powerful companies, with its vainglorious mission to “organize the world’s information,” has proved itself to be unethical, shockingly political and untrustworthy.
