Paypal just closed our account. No reason given. We violated their rules in the 87 pages legal agreement that their lawyers drew up, and they force you to click to use Paypal. Which rule was violated? Don’t ask. “Our decision is final and may not be appealed.” That’s some policy you got there. I’m sure it’s working out for you just fine. This is how the courts work in communist countries, and I’m not exaggerating. “You violated this, you are guilty of that, your sentence is death.” Here are the policies of EVERY tech giant, and EVERY public corporation for that matter, only the “corporate tech giants” are capable of seriously disrupting our lives. And make no mistake, private companies could not get away with any of this.
I remember UPS was once a great, private company, one of my favorites I loved being close to. They went public in 2012 and now THEY SUCK. Sorry to say it, but now we use USPS for nearly all our shipping because that is what people chose when they place with us. You can thank Amazon for the resurrection of the post office, USPS, and who pays for Amazon shipping? We do, the tax payers. We subsidize the post office with $9 – $11 Billion EVERY YEAR. We pay for the Postal Worker Union which has systemically made a mess out of the post office. You’ll never find a clock or a toilet in a post office, but you will in Kinkos/FEDEX and UPS Stores, but they only have them because local governments mandate them to have a bathroom, which is a cost the post office does not need to bare since they are “the government”.
Did you know that Google has de-indexed millions, YES MILLIONS, of websites around the world? This means that nothing on your website will be noticed and no one will be able to find you on the Internet unless they happen to know your website. But one thing is for certain, you will not find it by using Google. When Google wants to destroy you, make you disappear, like you never existed to begin with on the Internet, they do it will 100% impunity. No government agency has even attempted to stop them.
Facebook recently received a $5 Billion Dollar fine. Since they are worth $670 Billion, they laughed it off and plan to change NOTHING. Steve Wozniak, the guy who essentially invented the personal computer, recently warned EVERYONE TO GET OFF FACEBOOK. What does he know that we don’t. Plenty I would imagine. Google and Facebook are working to affect our next election cycle in 2020. Are you okay with that? The only reason you would be is because you happen to be on the same side as they are, and you think the way they do, you hold the same set of beliefs as Google executives. If you don’t, or they change their execs who now have the opposite opinions of the last set of executives, you would not be too happy with a public corporation, with zero accountability, that start effecting the changes
They have our money ($7,482.00) and will return it at their leisure – in 180 days. Could a bank do such a thing? These tech companies are scary and getting scarier. Recently our credit card processor made us remove ALL OUR HEMP PRODUCTS, hemp seeds and all. I cut off Comcast, cancelled HBO years ago, stopped going to Starbucks, stopped using Google to search and their AdWords, stopped buying from Amazon, (they also closed our account without a reason), stopped buying Apple products and I could go on. I closed and cancelled them because these massive public corporations are telling what to think and what to do. If you think like this, don’t buy our products. If you think like this, we want your money. It is difficult to believe corporations would do such a thing since this would be unthinkable 20 years ago.
Corporations did not use to get involved directly in political issues. Nike has become political, as have the news networks and they get away with taking sides in politics because they are massive public corporations who are virtually unstoppable. I feel that, one day, I will told, not asked, to use this “mark” or symbol if I want to buy anything. That’s where all this is heading. Corporations are ruining the internet by gaining control over vast swaths of it. I personally want nothing to do with it, and will deny it at every turn.
Stop giving your money to the tech giants. They are not our friends. Quite the contrary. I advise you be wary of them all.
