"The education system is shoving Google propaganda down my children's throat!"

What they mean: Round Earth, Vaccines are safe, Q isn't real.

What I wish they meant: Google Docs, Microsoft Office, Windows, YouTube, Zoom etc.

@oklomsy So much this. Google classroom is everywhere even here in the Eurozone where the EU and (some) national courts hit Google privacy trespasses fairly hard.

It's a result of absent privacy regulations for pupils' and students' data, and outsourcing of schools' IT infrastructure. When I went back to Uni I found that everything ran off Gmail and Drive.

@oklomsy
And here I was, thinking Google and YouTube were the main sources for their bullshit...

@oklomsy you can't escape the google, no matter what you do

@oklomsy you will live in the pod. you will own nothing. you will be tracked and you will be happy

You missed gmail, the thing that destroyed email for everyone
It's here, they don't expect anything else other than gmail addresses

@oklomsy
Cracks me up that THIS is what they would choose to be mad at Google about...

@oklomsy
And that people so clearly in desperate NEED of education demonize education so thoroughly...

@Tberry Ugh god, I know right? Seriously, they choose to be mad about the stupidest things, just because they are skeptical.

It's a good thing to be skeptical, but it's not a good thing to be ignorant, which is what they are doing.

@oklomsy
I prize skepticism (I'm an atheist) but I do not like #willfulignorance
