Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt said £2.5 billion tax avoidance ‘is called capitalism’ as he declared “I’m very proud of our tax avoidance scheme!” Documents filed in December 2012 show that Google generated around £2.5 billion in UK sales last year but paid just £6 million in corporation tax just over 2% tax their massive profit. The worst thing is about this comment that exposes Google for the parasites they are is, its true! Why should Google, Amazon or any other multinational corporation pay more tax than they are legally obligated to pay? It is up to the people to demand that our government, stop the dodgy tax loop holes mostly created by rich lobbyists and stop corporate tax evasion, with simple easy to follow and understand laws that requires EVERY business that earns the profit pay a fair, equal rate of tax, regardless of how much money they have made. Steps like this would not kill off all the parasites but it would prevent them from becoming so fat and greedy.
Freedom of expression, Freedom of speech and Freedom in general is now in the hands of huge multinational, corporations and so far while these corporations like to pretend publicly that they do support freedom of expression, freedom of speech and freedom in general their actions seem to suggest otherwise. Most social media websites including Facebook and Twitter, YouTube and many others are now implementing unfair, political censorship. They do it in the name of extremism, radicalization and even terrorism, yet they are the real extremists, the only freedom they believe in is economic freedom.
Since Google have taken over YouTube they have been responsible for some very good ideas, like longer videos and HD uploads but the have also been responsible for some very bad ones like Google plus, I hate it! Its like like Facebook but even more lame. Google have also destroyed YouTube with their greed, adverts everywhere but they don’t pay out at least not to me anyway (Still to receive a penny for 17 million views and it is not looking like I will anytime soon.) In fact they have put extra adverts in my videos, with no permission and no payment to me.
Google and Facebook have the power choose who they pay, who they promote and who they make easily accessible, it is a power that Google and Facebook abuse. They allow their rich corporate friends to spread their message without censorship but anybody that says anything they don’t like are silenced and labelled as extremists and lunatics. Facebook and Google do indeed allow full freedom of speech to corporations and people that pay, everyone can STFU!
