Art,
It's a quote...for further information on the use of the term 'evil' in 
connection with google who initiated the use of the term themselves in 
relation to themselves, please see:

This is pretty much the best mainstream article summarizing the current
issues with gentrification in SF:

How Burrowing Owls Lead To Vomiting Anarchists (Or SF???s Housing Crisis
Explained)

Isn't abundance of self-interest and lack of interest for others what 
was always concerned evil?

He Art, slow down. You seem to have a short memory. The label 'evil' was introduced by Google itself, not by some weirdo European media theorist: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_be_evil.

And if a corporation becomes directly involved in the destruction of a beloved city such as SF then it is the right of its citizens to fight back, doing 'exactly what they are supposed to be doing', namely resist, in both direct and symbolic ways.
