One of the great things about the web is that it enables people or groups with new ideas, alternative approaches, or minority views to potentially reach large audiences at little cost. But if Google allows big-money interests to dominate the search results, they are helping to reinforce the status quo, and making it harder for humankind to solve the problems that confront it.
And if you use Google, it's actually quite hard to find this part of the web, and it's getting harder. Mediocre and "good enough" content hits page 1 on Google simply because it's published on super-trusted domain names.
