And of course the biggest whammy is how they fired James Damore for having the temerity to point out any train of thought different from Google’s groupthinkthat all human demographics are exactly the same so any hiring differences must be due to racism, but a lack of diversity would be a critical flaw in a company because every human demographic is fundamentally different. Oh, and his memo also caused numerous female employees to stay home the next day, which seems to exactly prove his point. He is fighting back, in multiple ways, you can see the extensive list of complaints here – and the extent of the situation borders on the ridiculous – and of course the media completely misreported the situation.


Just the design of their advertising system itself is classically monopolistic and they threaten people who don’t use or promote their services.
