No official comment from Google as yet but certainly seems to be building in awareness.

A topic posted by a Google engineer about diversity and the toxicity of some of its impositions has caused him a few problems and brought to light some major issues. the comments outline some of the reasons why the imposition of diversity isn't working well in Google and he goes on to outline some differences between men and women when it comes to coding and jobs. Let's just say the reaction has a mixed balance!

Storm at Google over engineer's anti-diversity manifesto - Aug. 6, 2017

A 10-page document penned by an unnamed Google engineer titled "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber", that criticizes the company's "left leaning", "anti-conservative" culture and calls for replacing Google's diversity initiatives with policies that encourage "ideological diversity" instead, has led to outrage among fellow Google employees and Silicon Valley pundits. The document, first reported by Motherboard and published in full by Gizmodo, reportedly has gone "internally viral" inside the company on Friday according to CNBC. The engineer's identity has not been revealed, but he reports to Google VP Ari Balogh, listed on Crunchbase as the company's executive VP of storage infrastructure products.

The document's author also wrote that employees with conservative political beliefs are discriminated against at Google and lamented about how "leftist" ideology is harmful. They argue that the company should have a more "open" culture where their viewpoint would be welcomed. The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.

Motherboard said it had independently confirmed with multiple Google employees that the document is being widely shared among many of the company's software engineering teams: "If I had to guess, almost every single woman in engineering has seen it," a current employee told Motherboard. At several points on Friday night, the document was inaccessible because too many people were attempting to view it concurrently.

Can I ask what any of this has to do with Marxism?

As Marxism is a form of socioeconomic analysis that analyses class relations and societal conflict I believe this to be an ideal candidate in displaying the materialist interpretation of development and a dialectical view of social transformation. However point taken and I have now amended the title to Liberal, has a much better tone to it!

Much appreciated a chara.

Google the company that it is won't tolerate this type of insubordination, this guy will be made an example off.

I was reading about this in the reg.

Google diversity memo: Firm repudiates staffer's screed for 'incorrect assumptions about gender'

Engineer's 10-page doc dumps on diversity

Google execs have repudiated the document, which has made its way to Gizmodo. The document is long but its author thoughtfully provided the following summary of his arguments.
Google's political bias has equated the freedom from offence with psychological safety, but shaming into silence is the antithesis of psychological safety.

This silencing has created an ideological echo chamber where some ideas are too sacred to be honestly discussed.

The lack of discussion fosters the most extreme and authoritarian elements of this ideology.
Extreme: all disparities in representation are due to oppression

Authoritarian: we should discriminate to correct for this oppression

Differences in distributions of traits between men and women may in part explain why we don't have 50% representation of women in tech and leadership. Discrimination to reach equal representation is unfair, divisive, and bad for business.
It's safe to say that the document is a little out of step with Google's stated culture, as the company's diversity page opens with a quote from CEO Sundar Pichai to the effect that “A diverse mix of voices leads to better discussions, decisions, and outcomes for everyone.”

But perhaps it is not out of step with Google's actual culture, as the company has declined to compile data that would reveal if it has a gender pay gap in response to a lawsuit from the United States Department of Labor.
The stuff that counts, for now, comes from Google's recently appointed head of diversity Danielle Brown, whose memo on the document has also leaked. Brown says the staffer's document “advanced incorrect assumptions about gender”.

The likes of Google, Facebook, Apple, etc. proclaim to the world that they want workers who are self motivated and original, but, in reality, if you have any spark of originality about you at all - you will soon find yourself booted out of these drone farms.

Indeed you were correct.

Google Fires Diversity Manifesto Author James Damore For WrongThink

From Breitbart:
The Google employee behind a ten-page viewpoint diversity manifesto that went viral online has been fired.

James Damore, whose manifesto criticizing the politically correct corporate culture at Google prompted outrage from left-wing employees and social justice warriors online, revealed that he had been fired in an email to Breitbart Tech on Monday evening.

In his email to Breitbart Tech, Damore claimed, "They just fired me for 'perpetuating gender stereotypes.'"

Damore's writing has revealed a divided Google, in which some employees agree with his outlook, but are afraid to speak out for fear of repercussions from social justice warriors in the company, such as being added to blacklists.

In a memo sent to employees, Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly claimed that Damore had violated their Code of Conduct.


It's a crying shame that the same people that wish to be seen as "democratic societies" are those that enforce dictatorial rules and regulations to support some political agenda or doctrine. We see the same thing in politics. Virtue signaling all over and protests when the majority vote goes against what is perceived to be the "right" thing. The so called freedoms that are muted as soon as the agenda is opposed. Google exposing themselves as just another corporate where political correct indoctrination is being enforced.

What did any of us to expect, Google to turn around and admit he was right?

I remember a report about Facebook having a wall that was open to all to put anything upon the wall they wanted to say or suggest. There were no limitations and you could say anything you wanted too. Mark Zuckerberg put up a poster saying "Black Lives Matter". One of his workers replaced the word Black with the word ALL so the poster now displayed the message, "All Lives Matter". Apparently, Zuckerberg went mental and vowed to find the worker and fire them.

These large corporations are fronted by PC loving liberals who have no problem standing upon the people who got them to where they are but are now so caught up in the PC liberal bullshit they pander to the minorities to look good.

Political correctness is part of Cultural Marxism. We are slowly heading towards a communist takeover which always starts with silencing your opponents and ensuring everyone has the same ideology.
