Fired Google engineer: Company is 'like a cult'

The Google engineer fired for writing a controversial memo about diversity has gone beyond referring to the company as an "echo chamber" that won't stand for dissent and now says it's "almost like a cult."

In an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, James Damore gave his explanation for why he was fired, taking a shot at the company's culture and its famous motto.

"For many, including myself," he wrote, "working at Google is a major part of their identity, almost like a cult with its own leaders and saints, all believed to righteously uphold the sacred motto of 'Don't be evil.'" ...

Abe did declare the slaves in Rebel States to be free.
Abe:
"There is a natural disgust in the minds of nearly all white people to the idea of indiscriminate amalgamation of the white and black races ... A separation of the races is the only perfect preventive of amalgamation, but as an immediate separation is impossible, the next best thing is to keep them apart where they are not already together. If white and black people never get together in Kansas, they will never mix blood in Kansas ..."
"In the language of Mr. Jefferson, uttered many years ago, "It is still in our power to direct the process of emancipation, and deportation, peaceably, and in such slow degrees, as that the evil will wear off insensibly; and in their places be, pari passu [on an equal basis], filled up by free white laborers."
"I have no purpose directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
"Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people. As long as blacks continue to live with the whites they constitute a threat to the national life. "- the rest of THAT Lincoln quote I skip

honestly Lincoln? Historic revision.

Understandable. After all, Abe did declare the slaves in Rebel States to be free.

Norm, it looks like I.E. may have a handle on it. He may very well have found that Noam Chomsky said something that he decided match he situation that he was in.

Yes, sometimes even Franny may say something that I will at least give a nod too, and perhaps it would be worthy of doing a quotation, but that doesn't mean I have changed my opinion of the Romish Church. http://tinyurl.com/zb3tfm3 (Is the One True Church Roman Catholic?).

But family history and my own personal inclination, means I am an Abe Lincoln admirer, and you'll see me quote him much more often than a Chomsky or a Pope.

Mr. Damore is not a conservative, but a non-partisan critic of both the right and the left. He believes both sides of the ideological divide have valuable insights to offer. He doesn’t want to be a CEO because he desires more work-life balance. He makes suggestions on how to change Google’s work process and hiring to make the company more appealing and accessible to women—and also more effective. If you didn’t know any better you might think from this interview that he was among the most moderate, sensible people at Google—or any other workplace.
And perhaps he is. As he did in his memo, Mr. Damore on video urges people to consider evidence from all sides of a political argument and to empathize with those who hold opposing views. He recommends seeing people as individuals, not as members of some larger group
-
those who mischaracterize Mr. Damore’s views as an attack on women may be loud, they probably don’t represent most of his former co-workers:
There are “definite mixed feelings” inside the company, one employee said. “There are people of all political stripes, and there’s outrage at the extreme of both ends of the spectrum and more sanity in the middle.” Moderate libs at the company don’t believe the memo threatens the rights of women at the company-
So why fire him?

I am not sure if I put up this URL or not, but I passed it around to some people that I knew and got some favorable responses especially programs to use besides what Google has.

The article above, with some devices will start in the middle of the page or further down. So you should ignore the big blank space before it. You didn't get much quote from it because it didn't want to let me copy material from it.

apparently some people didn't like the quote from the article that the hero of the piece used, one of my favorite quotes comes from my favorite Republican President,

Abraham Lincoln said or, wrote:
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
Sundar Pichai / Larry Page, the head of the Google / Alphabet Empire had better take note of the above.

Leftists have time to come up with intellectual quotes because conservatives are too busy working to pay for your welfare.

SA's CNBC article wrote:
While his cause has lit up the conservative blogosphere, Damore chose to quote famous leftist intellectual Noam Chomsky.

"As Noam Chomsky once observed, 'the smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum,'" Damore wrote.

That should kill any more interest from conservatives

War is Peace. Slavery is Freedom. Ignorance is Strength. And all animals are equal, but some animals are less equal than others.

Let us not get so wrapped up about the twisted labyrinth of the political Pandora's Box, let us keep our eyes on proclaiming the truth of the gospel, and teaching the saints.
