    I think number 12 is especially relevant here. Search engines, especially Google, are editing what's good and what's bad on the WWW. The Web used to be libre, now you got Matt Cutts censoring sites he doesn't approve, and promoting sites they think is "high quality"(AKA those who buy billions in ads). You notice the WWW is being "standardized", all sites look similar, the top sites follow similar rules...essentially the purity of the WWW is gone, Google is actively editing it as if the Web was its property.

    I think some of 'the world's smartest people' need to work on their priorities.

    No mention of people trafficking, sex slavery, human rights, despots, paedophiles, poverty.

    But things like 'that we will continue to uphold taboos on bad words' are on the list.

    Eugenics is like dog breeding to get the features you want in the puppies but for humans.

    Chinese eugenics is eugenics that the Chinese do. That dude is scared that "omg, they do euginics, we don't, the end of the world is coming, plz plz gov give me money to save you".

    Kind of like how music videos started out, as a rule, all experimental, in different formats, wild and creative in the '80's, often achieving everything on a shoestring production budget. Then from the late '80's on, "the rules came down" from the music industry, and the performer was simply put in three different outfits, and three different environments performing the song. Artistic innovation then became the exception, and often excluded from being aired for just that reason. "You can't run that video, just because it's really interesting-- it pushes the wrong artist!" Corporate Music Inc has since acted, and acts like it owns the whole music video form.

    More recently, the same routine happened to YouTube. It started out structurally as a fair use medium or defacto public domain, where the context of uploading videos (short duration, open to commentary, parody, news discussion) conformed by default to fair use laws, thus allowed for posting videos of old shows and songs that the record and TV industries had long since stopped running on TV. In swooped Big Corporate, first by Google buying YouTube, then by altering its practices to suit their notion that nothing is ever fair use or passes to the public domain, if they can squeeze another dollar out of it---and down went all videos that supposedly 'violated' their claims to perpetual copyright.

    Now they're setting up a newer version of YouTube where it's pay to access this, or download that, or even to upload your own music, unless Big Corporate gets a cut. This is the path of "standardization" preferred by them, one of "we control or bottleneck everything, you pay to participate on our turf." All digital entertainment remains 'their' property, ultimately, via copyright claim or by portal access.

    That is a great analogy IMO. Guitar solos were removed from radio versions, everything was neatly packaged in 3 minutes or less, scenarios and trends were all dictated and you got a boxed and idiotic music scene from the 2000's on. It's evident in sales too: Eric Clapton, BB King, Santana, you got all these guys from the 1940's still putting out hits, but the executives don't take the hint: people like GOOD music and only moronic adolescents accept this present day shit music scene. It's like the new generation of music is pure crap. I can't stand present day radio, it's 100% crap, so I end up listening to oldies stations, 80's and 60's stations and so on. That's exactly what Google is doing to the WWW. They're dictating that content must look like this and that, everyone gotta behave like Google wants it or they penalize you. Fuck that, when will people wake up. A search engine should NOT control the editorial guidelines of something as powerful and free as the WWW.
