A firing offence

Recently, Daily Pickings referred to how tolerance has become tyranny. The firing of former Google engineer, James Damore, is a case study in "thought police" tyranny. Here's what he wrote:

Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber by James Damore
How bias clouds our thinking about diversity and inclusion

No doubt many have condemned James without even having read his memo - like most tyranny, it is the manipulative few who incite the ignorant majority.

We need dialogue with the "other" if we are to reverse the spiral into oblivion; as long as we stick to name calling rather than reasoned argument, the trajectory won't change.

Why the Google Memo Brings Forward an Overdue Conversation – Part 2 (‘The Firing’) by Michael Krieger
If you read the memo it’s obvious that the author went out of his way to avoid triggering people who are easily triggered. Whether or not you agree with the conclusions, it was written in a respectful and measured way. He goes out of his way to clarify what he’s saying so as not to be misunderstood.

Google has recently ramped up its censorship algorithms to silence dissenting voices but if you study the origins of Google and its connections (CIA, Bilderberg etc.), why are we surprised?

We need to talk.
