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.
