google antitrust filing thread from @fasterthanlime@twitter.com 

RT Lock (with permission):

Ok so, I just read through all 173 pages of the unredacted Google antitrust filing and I have to say that either Google is screwed or society is screwed, we'll find out which.

Unordered list of fun things I learned:

- google has a secret deal with facebook called "Jedi Blue" that they knew was so illegal that it has a whole section describing how they'll cover for each other if anyone finds out
- google appears to have a team called gTrade that is wholly dedicated to ad market manipulation
- Google had a plan called "Project NERA" to turn the web into a walled garden they called "Not Owned But Operated". A core component of this was the forced logins to the chrome browser you've probably experienced (surprise!)
- Google is willing to do almost everything to prevent people from circumventing their ad exchanges
- This is what AMP is about
- Google habitually insider trades on their ad exchanges in every way you can think of and every way you can't. Too many ways to list here.
- The exchanges are also rigged so that google wins on bids where they aren't the highest bidder.
- A large amount of people inside google are aware of all of this
- If Google ever tells you some change will increase your ad yield, run. In fact anything they tell you is a lie
- Google has worked with Facebook and Microsoft to discourage them from increasing user privacy, lamenting occasions where they prioritized their reputation over their collective business interest

self medication, anarchism, medical system 

self medicating while properly informed is safe and can often lead to better results faster than going through the medical system, where either no one believes you or doctors sell you things you dont need.

self medicating can also make it a lot easier to force med professionals to prescribe something ("so it's safe and proper"). probably about half of all trans people on hrt will confirm this too, though it's true for all medication.

the medical system is usually not flexible enough to allow you to actually try out different things until you find something that works and decisions may be influenced by money from big pharma anyways, though prescriptions are useful to force the system to pay your drugs.

mutual aid includes sharing info about self med and just like with everything else, building our own healthcare from the ground up. only anarchist mutual aid healthcare will actually care about your wellbeing and not just your productivity.

while medication is ultimately a product for profit and not necessarily a treatment, i trust myself and my friends a lot more than someone motivated by profit motives to find something that actually helps.
