Faces from FLICKR

Dear Google,

Clearly, you don’t know me. ¬†This morning I was briefly tempted to leave a comment on a respected blog, but was required to login by any number of social media; but I don’t belong. ¬†As I rarely use your search engine, and availed myself many years ago of your kind offer to expunge myself from your files during a brief one-time amnesty, I decided to google myself, in an attempt to learn who you think I am. ¬†I clicked the photos of your topmost collection. The result was hilarious! ¬†

Apparently you think I’m : ¬†a professor, an astronaut, a president, an actor, a woman, a black man, an asian, a prisoner . . . . ¬†Like I said, you don’t know me. ¬†(Well, there were a few photos of me in your collection, and a few more ¬†which I had taken ‚ÄĒ of other people.) ¬†And there was a public record from a death certificate filed by me. ¬†But your album was so saturated with false faces as to be ridiculous. ¬†

Yes, information wants to be free, but I want to remain free of information (unless I’m studying our condition, thanks). ¬† But this is why I use, which never tracks ‚Äď to foil your noseiness. ¬†So, please STOP STALKING ME. ¬†Just go away. ¬†You’re very scary. ¬†Or just look in the mirror, googling yourself, Google employee(s). ¬†Perhaps you’ll notice that this ends badly. ¬†If you don’t believe me, just watch this clip from youtube of Disney’s¬†Sorcerer’s Apprentice,¬†where Mickey teaches a broom to carry water, but fails to provide an OFF switch. ¬†(No ads; you can safely fast forward to 50-second mark of 2:28 minute clip.) ¬†Is this how Noah’s flood began? ¬†

A new book, Surveillance Valley: The¬†Secret Military History of the Internet,¬†about the¬†deep state¬†brings the problem out of the closet. ¬†It’s like “The Matrix” ‚ÄĒ controlling freedom of speech, and freedom to associate. ¬†Yep, Google dear, you’re in bed with the goons who bust heads and seed paranoia among fellow citizens, just like the old Soviet KGB, spying on everybody. ¬†¬Ņ¬Ņ Don’t be evil ?? ¬†Indeed !
