The idea that Google might be becoming a national threat is what struck me when I read a recent column by a law professor making a compelling argument that Google has reached a point where it no longer allows dissent outside the company. Given the recent firing of a Google engineer, that may be true inside the firm as well. Apparently, Google has been funding an organization that is set up to fight monopolies, but when that organization called it out, Google allegedly orchestrated the termination of the group.
