    Somebody who loves freedom has put their money where their mouth is:

    Jack Poulson, a senior research scientist at Google, has quit the company in protest over the tech titan’s development of a censored search engine for China, claiming it represents a “forfeiture of our values.”
    According to the Intercept, Poulson “raised concerns with his managers at Google after the Intercept revealed that the Internet giant was secretly developing a Chinese search app for Android devices.”

    “After entering into discussions with his bosses, Poulson decided in mid-August that he could no longer work for Google. He tendered his resignation and his last day at the company was August 31,” they reported, adding that he is possibly one of five employees to leave the company in protest.

    Very interesting.

    Goofle isn't a sincere company. They pretend that they're ideologically pure and have the best intentions but they are always up to this garbage.

    The bottom line is the bottom line at Goofle.

    The same thing can be said of the rest of the Fortune 500. So, tell us something we don't already know.

    So, universally, no companies have integrity?

    That is an interesting line to pull.

    Would you ever say that, perhaps, major corporations that control the media and many entertainment outlets, as well as have stakes in other places, might manipulate news stories to increase ratings or further their own economic interests?

    Or is that beyond them?

    This is a bit of a side note, of course, but I welcome it.

    I also wonder if you think that the Corporations are better or worst than the Communist Party when it comes to freedom, integrity, "the bottom line," etc.

    ... LOL, right.

    You are really bitter that a leading Buddhist religious figure isn't a cookie cutter liberal with a sack full of bad takes on nationalism & identity, eh?
