Cheap manufactured products are not China’s primary exports, but social engineering technologies are. Authoritarian regimes are eagerly adopting China’s dystopian surveillance and censorship technologies, using data and manipulation to maintain their power.
Nations are passing laws that conflict with other nations and the result will be ‘nationalized data’ similar to the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell’s dystopian book, Nineteen Eighty Four. Further splintering of the Internet is inevitable.
After boldly denying before Congress that they don’t manually manipulate search results, Google has been busted again for lying. In fact, they DO manually skew search results when it suits their leftist views and they were caught red-handed.
Google’s ethics panel got swarmed by thousands of (unethical?) non-participants attacking individual members of its ethics panel. The result was utter chaos, resignations and finally, cancelling the whole thing. Big Tech and ethics are approaching oxymoronic status.
The EU just passed Article 13 that will change the Internet forever. it will prevent any sharing of original content without express permission from the copyright holder. This will end sharing/reposting news articles and pictures and it is forcing social media giants to install upload filters to automatically block offenders.

Technocrats at Google lied about how they personally manipulate search results and then tried to cover it up. Now, they are busted in the act. Furthermore, Google CEO Pinchai may have lied to Congress when under oath.
There are a number of factors, including culture, peer-pressure and job evaluation processes, all of which spin into an internal echo-chamber that produces the Technocrat group-think that so angers outsiders.
