I would wager that google has played a role in the loss of many many jobs in the last few years
And the banks and the credit companies and the loan companies and all their affiliates many of whom are on here.. have caused far far more job losses and economic chaos and their CEOs have taken far far more money out and ruined far far more people worldwide ..
And those same ruined and in many cases now homeless people are now being told that they and not the bankers must pay for the scams ..and that there is no money for anything because it had to go to the banks who just awarded themselves bonuses ..again..and gave money to their affiliates ..again... for bringing them yet more marks for loans and credit deals..
And those same scammers on wall street now direct the bile and call for break up of search engines ..but never break up of themselves..never take the risky parts of the banks, separate the traders and speculators away from the savings and loans parts of the banks..cut back the bonuses and the affiliate commissions that mean that the true cost of a loan is less than half of what you'll be charged ..but all those commissions have to be added in ..
Directing all your ire at one search engine, blinds you to the real corruption and the real problem..there are too many middlemen and too many people who get paid ( or pay themselves commissions or get paid commissions ) merely for moving other people money and who bring nothing at all of value to the table or to any transaction.
Google are far from spotless..but they are far from being the worst and most guilty of the actors in the present worldwide crisis..ad the massively guilty have been allowed in the vast majority to not only walk ..but to come back to the trough of the fruit of the work of others for another banquet.
I was typing ..slowly and with many errors as usual whilst you posted..and this "internet crisis" ..isn't a "crisis"..for many of us ..in fact isn't a crisis for the vast majority of webmasters..just a few hundred very vocal ones in a few fora away from the real crisis out there.
