“Is It Moral To Work For A Tech Giant?” by John G. Messerly

I recently read “The Great Google Revolt” in the New York Times Magazine. The article chronicles the conflict between Google and some of its employees over company practices that some of their employees deem unethical. I found the article interesting because I taught computer ethics for many years and I’ve always wanted to do meaningful work.

Fourteen Reforms to Rescue USA Democracy by Hank Pellissier

The USA is a sub-par, wretchedly-flawed ‘democracy.’

A Princeton/Northwestern study suggests the US government more closely resembles an oligarchy or a corporatocracy than a democracy because “economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”
