Google's decision to work with China, not US, 'unprecedented': Peter Thiel

Peter Thiel on Google's AI work with China

Facebook board member Peter Thiel says Google has worked with both the U.S. military and the Chinese military.

PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel said on Sunday that his calls for the U.S. government to investigate Google are in an effort to see if there is any “foreign infiltration” at the tech giant.

Thiel, a conservative who is an outlier among his peers in Silicon Valley, originally called for the federal investigation in mid-July at the National Conservatism Conference in Washington, D.C., accusing Google of working with China but not the U.S. government.

This is reminiscent of Ford and other companies making money with the Nazis while building up their military.

Capitalism. Profit motivated companies throw loyalty and ethics right out the window.

Profit, market domination. Period, end of story.

Capitalism doesn't care about right or wrong.... only about profit.

Not money per se, but it is the LOVE of money that throws morally and loyality out the window.

This is NOT about capitalism 9:22, as I'm sure you know.

It's more about communism, and advancing the "morally superior" progressive agenda.

I'm sure they censor conservatives for bottom-line financial gain like good capitalists, right??

Absolutely wrong.

Google understands that if it doesn't get into China's market NOW that they won't get in at all and loose incredible market share, and incredible profits.

Capitalism doesn't care what political leaning you have. It cares about profits. Capitalism, doesn't care about politics... it cares about profits. Period, hard stop, end of story. Profits.

11:50am Good thing Capitalism is not a person.

Furthermore China doesnt need Google. Google needs China. To add to that none of us need Google. They are a sh-t product at this point. They were at the apex of the industry. However, the industry is now full of ideologues that ignore the reality and push for the "future" at any cost.

But you want to talk Capitalism? Eat this. There is only one product and that is the product that the people want. I guarantee you that the people of China dont want this. The Communist govt does as does our leftist friends in this country.

Yes Mr. Know-it-all google needs a testing ground for their nefarious products before they can be forced onto the American Public.
