the lie passed into history and became truth."
The New Scientist has the stunning story (2/28/15, "Google wants to rank websites based on facts not links," by Hal Hodson):
Great idea, right? Sure it is.
The author of the article lets the cat out of the bag right away with his comment about "anti-vaccination" websites.
These sites will obviously be shoved into obscurity by Google because they're "garbage"… whereas "truthful" pro-vaccine sites will dominate top ranked pages on the search engine.
This is wonderful if you believe what the CDC tells you about vaccine safety and efficacy. The CDC: an agency that opens its doors every day with lies and closes them with more lies.
The New Scientist article continues:
Right. Google, researchers of truth. Assessors of trustworthiness. Who in the world could have a problem with that?
Answer: anyone with three live brain cells.
Here's the New Scientist's capper. It's a beauty:
So Google, along with its friends at the CIA, will engineer a new and improved, greater flood of (dis)information across the Web. And this disinfo will constitute an overwhelming majority opinion… and will become the standard for measuring truth and trustworthiness.
Think about what kinds of websites will rise like foul cream to the top of Google page rankings:
In other words: (fake) consensus reality becomes reality. Which is the situation we have now, but the titanic pile of fakery will rise much, much higher.
Also, think about this: the whole purpose of authentic investigative reporting is puncturing the consensus… but you'll have to search Google for a long time to find it.
In the field of medical fraud, an area I've been researching for 25 years, the conclusions of standard published studies (which are brimming with lies) will occupy page after page of top Google rankings.
Let me offer a counter-example to the Google "knowledge team."
Here is a woman who has examined, up close and personal, more medical studies in her career than the entire workforce of Google. She is Dr. Marcia Angell. For 20 years, she was an editor at The New England Journal of Medicine.
On January 15, 2009, the New York Review of Books published her stunning statement:
Angell torpedoes an entire range of medical literature, based on her hard-won experience.
But you can be sure that when it comes to "medical facts," the Google "truth team" will ascribe absolutely no merit (ranking) to her conclusion or its implications.
You may say,
The new Google program is going to double down.
It's going to set up its own Ministry of Truth. It's going to standardize algorithms that unerringly bring about officially favored lies.
After Google launches this Ministry of Truth program, you'll have to put on diving gear and go deep underwater to find any trace of them.
Welcome to a new day.
Let's take all this one step further. Google's director of research is Ray Kurzweil, who many people know as the promoter of a "utopian" plan to hook the population up (through direct brain-machine interface) to a vast super-computer.
The super-computer will pass along virtually all human knowledge. Kurzweil believes such a momentous breakthrough will endow humans with a mystical level of consciousness.
Even if this technological wet dream could be realized, we can now see what "connecting to all human knowledge" means:
It's time to reverse AI (Artificial Intelligence) and call it IA (Intelligent Androids).
IAs would be humans who are programmed to be androids. IAs accept truth as it delivered to them by official sources.
Google makes its contribution by promoting official sources. And hiding other sources. Yes, this surely seems like Nirvana. You will be fed the Good and protected from the Evil.
Thank you, Google. When are you going to apply for non-profit status and open your Holy Church of Information?
