Photo Combo: “Google’s Chairman, Eric Schmidt, photographed in a New York elevator, carrying Henry Kissinger’s new book, ‘World Order’, 25 Sep 2014″ + “Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt and Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State and National Security Council head under President Richard Nixon, during a ‘fireside chat’ with Google staff at the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, on 30 Sep 2013. In the talk, Kissinger says National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden is ‘despicible’.”
Read this heavily referenced & long excerpt from Julian Assange’s book, “When Google Met Wikileaks”:
I’m not sure if that would be a case of the “pot calling the kettle black,” but here’s a truthful short snip from it, just the same:
There was nothing politically hapless about Eric Schmidt. I had been too eager to see a politically unambitious Silicon Valley engineer, a relic of the good old days of computer science graduate culture on the West Coast. But that is not the sort of person
who attends the Bilderberg conference four years running, who pays regular visits to the White House, or who delivers “fireside chats” at the World Economic Forum in Davos.43
Schmidt’s emergence as Google’s “foreign minister”—making pomp and ceremony state visits across geopolitical fault lines —had not come out of nowhere; it had been presaged by years of assimilation within US establishment networks of reputation and influence.
On a personal level, Schmidt and Cohen [both Jews, btw, as is Kissinger] are perfectly likable people. But Google’s chairman is a classic “head of industry” player, with all of the ideological baggage that comes with that role.44 Schmidt fits exactly where he is: the point where the centrist, liberal, and imperialist tendencies meet in American political life.
By all appearances, Google’s bosses genuinely believe in the civilizing power of enlightened multinational corporations, and they see this mission as continuous with the shaping of the world according to the better judgment of the “benevolent superpower.”
They will tell you that open-mindedness is a virtue, but all perspectives that challenge the exceptionalist drive at the heart of American foreign policy will remain invisible to them.
This is the impenetrable banality of “don’t be evil.” They believe that they are doing good. And that is a problem.
They indeed are “dancing with the Devil,” their disguised & deceiving “benevolent superpower.”
But we all knew it already, didn’t we?!
“They believe that they are doing good. And that is a problem.”
The True God agrees that is a problem! >
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
Read the intricate spider-web of relationships with which this behemoth known as Google is deeply entangled:
“A ‘don’t be evil’ empire is still an empire”:
