David Bowie, well-known singer and songwriter was a frequent David sharer on his official website, bowie.com. Weeks before his tragic passing, he had put up a post where he expressed his concerns about humanity being controlled and ruled by Google.
HIS POST PUT FORWARD HIS BELIEF THAT HUMANITY IS ON ITS WAY TO BE RULED BY GOOGLE
Bowie wrote that Google has been taken over by the elite and talked about the future being under an oppressive authoritarian regime that would curtail the basic freedom of the people, a dictatorship that would tell humanity what to do and what not to do and even went on to say that Google is indeed The Illuminati, uniting the two entities and dismissing any individuality that either may possess. An earlier message by him stated that the traditional ideas of warfare and covert operations by states and countries are of no importance anymore and everything revolved around Google and its discretion as to what it may want people to know and find out and vice versa.
BOWIE ORIGINALLY BELIEVED THAT THE INTERNET WAS A FREE SPACE, BEYOND REGULATIONS, AND FORBIDDANCE
Bowie had been pretty active on the website, posting updates about his life, invalidating rumors that were inaccurate and indulged in debates and discussions on topics that were of interest to him, signing his posts as Sailor.
Bowie had set up and launched BowieNet, an internet service provider in the 1990s as he was excited about the emergence of the Internet and believed it was a fresh and wide platform that would create opportunities for creative and intellectual exposure and freedom. BowieNet provided a dial-up connection that came with. The Internet was in its early stages of emergence and hence a bit of an enigma to multinational corporations and other companies of the like. The idea of a free space greatly excited Bowie.
BOWIENET WAS SHUT DOWN WHEN THE DARKER SIDE OF THE INTERNET WAS REVEALED
Bowie has been recorded saying that had he been nineteen years old, he would choose the Internet over music and had a clear idea of the new era of digitization that was soon approaching. However, 2006 saw the shutting down of BowieNet when the Internet had come to seem more than what it was seen on the outside, unfortunately not in a positive way, to Bowie.
His claims about the internet have been compared to prophecies and his final album that was dropped about two days before his passing is laced with symbolism and ominous clues.
Bowie claimed that Google had compromised on free speech and was plotting to take over the world by bringing in a new world order. He said that it was beyond being a mere instrument and whoever had control over it would gain control over the entire world.
GOOGLE ONLY MAKES CONTENT SUITED TO THEIR AGENDA AVAILABLE
Google has always claimed that the content that is unavailable to the general population is unsuited for a harmonious society but Bowie claims that it is not so. The content that is hidden by Google is hidden because it does not suit its agenda. Bowie argues that the past is proof enough that a one hundred percent liberal world is not possible. He has expressed his views on democracy saying that taking away and suppressing information followed by curbing the freedom of expression will lead humanity towards a time that is dictatorial and oppressive.
