    “Google engineers want…”

    No. Google executives want this to happen. Google’s CEO wants this to happen.

    They want to change the internet and remove any little bit of freedom for their own corporate profits.

    Fuck “do no evil” Google.

      Why not both, Google engineers and Google execs? If you’ve ever looked at how Google engineers talk on the Linux kernel mailing lists, and their code in android internals, they tend to have a “we know best” or holier than thou attitude.

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see this trash also coming from the same kind of Google developers who act like that.

        These engineers are just trying to keep their job. There’s probably a lead or a manager somewhere in line with upper management involved in this and looking over the developers’ shoulders.

      Google engineers can work anywhere they want. They’re responsible for this shit too. Tech is full of greedy devs with no ethics.

        That’s a narrow way to view things. Google hires a LOT of people with work visas that tie them to the company.

        No, Indian people on H-1B visas desperate for a better life are going to write it.

        Google execs incentivize engineers to build shit by dangling promotions to those who participate.
