Google Censors Sites, Words & Art. Google Censorship Threatens Rational Risk Management & World

Internet Art and Culture

The scientific method involves a successive process of getting accurate data; setting up and critically testing potentially falsifiable hypotheses (models) of reality; and then refining our models of reality based on this experimentation. Of course lying, denial, rubbing out, fudging, or otherwise censoring the data utterly de-rails the scientifc process and that is why there is zero tolerance for lying in Science.

Indeed, in a recent article entitled ““Swan Lake” Painting. Fear, Greed, Lying & Values, Biosphere & Market Collapse” (see: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/258... ) I argue strongly for “zero tolerance for lying” in order to save the Planet.

Censorship is a form of Lying by Omission and unfortunately Google Censors. Google Censorship applies World-wide, not just in China (where it admits to censoring for pragmatic reasons – as if that’s an excuse! – as revealed by this report from the BBC: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technolo... ). Google Censorship is applied not just to Sites and Words it doesn’t like but also extends this censorship to CARTOONISTS it doesn’t like – Google censors cartoonists and artists it doesn’t like. I am a great admirer of Ben Heine and Carlos Latuff, both for their brilliant art and for their anti-racist, humanitarian commitment to justice for conquered, dispossessed and abused Indigenous People such as the Palestinians. However Google censors both of these gifted and humanitarian cartoonists (see: http://desertpeace.wordpress.com/20... ).

The Nazis wiped my family from the face of Europe and for that reason - as well as for fundamental general reasons relating to "all men are created equal and have an unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" - I resolutely adhere to the 3 major messages from the World War 2 Holocaust, namely "zero tolerance for racism", "never again to anyone" and "bear witness about abuse of humanity".

Unfortunately the Bush-ites, neo-Bush-ites and racist Zionists (RZs) grossly violate these fundamental Holocaust messages in their remorseless involvement in the Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Genocide and Afghan Genocide (post-invasion excess deaths 0.3 million, 2 million and 4-6 million, respectively; post-invasion under-5 infant deaths 0.2 million, 0.6 million and 2.1 million, respectively; and refugees totalling 7 million, 6 million and 4 million, respectively) (for details and documentation see : http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya ); my book entitled “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950” (G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/137... and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ); my contribution “Australian complicity in Iraq mass mortality” in “Lies, Deep Fries & Statistics” (edited by Robyn Williams, ABC Books, Sydney, 2007): http://www.abc.net.au/rn/science/oc... ); and my recently published, revised and updated 2008 version of my 1998 book “Jane Austen and the Black Hole of British History” (that also deals with other British and American atrocities, including the 200 year duration, 1.5 billion excess death, British Raj Indian Holocaust) (see: http://janeaustenand.blogspot.com/ ).

Google not only censors the work of artists Ben Heine and Carlos Latuff - it also censors other media, notably the anti-racist and humanitarian, Canada-based but very International Media With Conscience News (MWC News). I am an artist as well as a scientist and my scientific data and words about horrendous avoidable mass mortality having evidently failed, I have been publishing images of my huge Paintings for Peace (e.g. Manhattan Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/107... , Sydney Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/108... and Jerusalem Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/171... ) on MWC News (i.e. when words fail say it in pictures).

I have recently exposed Google Censorship of my pro-Peace Paintings in an article entitled "Google Censors "Manhattan Madonna" Painting & Art for Peace":
http://gpolya.newsvine.com/_news/20... . In short, a Yahoo Search for the Title Words of my pro-Peace “Manhattan Madonna” painting yields article and image as item #1 out of 10.4 million links whereas a Google Search “buries” the same article and image as #52 out of 3.8 million URLs.

Up to a few months ago, it was very convenient when discussing my Paintings for Peace with friends and acquaintances to simply say (as an alternative to writing out the link) “Just Google the words Manhattan Madonna and you’ll see my painting as number 1 on page 1 of 4 million hits” – however a few months ago I discovered that Google now “buries” the article with my painting on MWC News as item #2 on page 5.

Now I have to tell my friends to search for the words Manhattan and Madonna on YAHOO to quickly find an expandable image of the painting “Manhattan Madonna” and a detailed explanation of its profound humanitarian message.

Indeed Google has similarly "buried" all of my pro-Peace paintings published on MWC News (for a convenient set of links to all of these Paintings for Peace and a discussion of their humanitarian intent see “Truth, Beauty & Saving the World. Science & Art versus Nuclear, Greenhouse & Poverty Threats”: http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-NvVV... ). The mechanism used by Google is probably by application of a “weighting factor” to sites and/or articles that it disapproves of ranging from 0.0 (100% censorship) to 1.0 (0% censorship).

Here are the beautiful pro-Peace, pro-Mother, pro-Child, pro-Planet images being successfully “buried” by Google, presumably at the behest of violent, warmongering, racist Bush-ites, neo-Bush-ites and Zionists committed to invasion, occupation, abuse, devastation and ethnic cleansing of foreign lands: Swan Lake: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/258... , One Day Pathetique: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/261... , Clean Energy World: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/231... , My Country: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/214... , Four Seasons: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/211..., Bundoora Eucalyptus: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/221... , Deep Mind: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/178... and Genes and Memes: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/181... (both of these relating to Mind and Humanism), Apocalypse Now : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/176... , Jerusalem Madonna (Muslim, Renaissance Italian, Byzantine Orthodox, aboriginal, abstract expressionist fusion): http://mwcnews.net/content/view/171... , Manhattan Madonna ( a memorial for 9/11) : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/107... , Rosanna Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/166... , Scheherazade (for Women’s Rights) : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/162... , Sydney Madonna (for Mother and Child and Indigenous Rights) : http://mwcnews.net/content/view/108... , Truelove: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/110... , Melbourne Madonna: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/139... , Qana (inspired by Pablo Picasso’s anti-war masterpiece "Guernica"): http://mwcnews.net/content/view/9547/26/ , Isfahan Matisse: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/144... , Alhambra Pollock: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/140... , Terra: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/156... and Bundoora Arabesque: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/159... .

MWC News is one of very few significant media reporting the ongoing Palestinian Holocaust, Palestinian Genocide, Iraqi Holocaust, Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide - accordingly what Google is doing amounts to active Holocaust Denial and Genocide Denial (utterly disgusting to people such as myself whose family was subject to Holocaust and Genocide by the Nazis).

Tell everyone you know about this. Rational risk management - whether for aviation, hospitals, personal health, avoidable mass mortality or market investment - requires accurate information but Google quite clearly is fudging and censoring the data - an unforgivable crime from a scientific risk management perspective. And they don’t just do it China - they do it now throughout the World.

Indeed it would be interesting to know to what extent Google Censorship and Lying has contributed to the Global Market Collapse - it has certainly contributed to the horrendous and continuing avoidable mass mortality in the Occupied Haitian, Somalian, Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories. Thus if you do a Yahoo Search for the words “9-11 excuse” you will find item #5 on page #1 of 101 MILLION URLs an article entitled “9-11 excuse for US global genocide. The Real 9-11 atrocity: millions dead in Bush Wars”: http://mwcnews.net/content/view/251... (actually, by a macabre coincidence, 9-11 million avoidable deaths in the Bush Wars, 1990-2008). However if you do a Google Search you will find this important and shocking article “buried” at item #63 out of about 6 million URLs.

If you want a better Risk Management from a better take on Reality do a Yahoo Search. Censorship and lying by Commission or omission are inimical to Rational Risk Management (for a detailed exposition see my Course Lecture Notes on the subject: http://rationalriskmanagement.blogs... ) and threaten us all. There must be zero tolerance for lying.
