Google’s ‘Respectful Code’ Policy Censors Politically Incorrect Terms

A new report suggests that Google will adopt a “respectful code” policy that will eliminate politically incorrect terms used at the company in its programming. The new policy bans common programming terminology like “master and slave,” widely found in both software and hardware, to fight the “harmful effects of bias and discrimination.”

According to a report by The Daily Caller, Google is aggressively working to censor speech inside the company and possibly on its internet services. A new policy called the “respectful code” will ban words and phrases that officials at Google’s Diversity and Inclusion Office have deemed offensive.

Leaked documents suggest that the new code was created to combat bias and discrimination in society. Google feels that implementing the “respectful code” is their way of contributing to the fight against "hatred" and "bigotry" in society.

I believe that the term Orwell gave this in his book 1984 was "right talk". It is nothing more than controlling how one is to think and speak to further their, Google's agenda.
