I won’t shed a tear but such a change in the course of humankind seems like a major challenge. Why should Google be divided? Dave Farrington has the answer.
Color me fully mature enough to remember the days when the U.S. government considered breaking up Microsoft. Windows over here, Office and Internet Explorer over there. Remember the Yankees? They were such a dominant baseball team back in the day, racking up pennants and World Series wins so frequently there were calls to break up the Yankees.
What about Google?
You should want them broken up, too, because the company dominates online advertising and tracking in such a way as to harm competition with anti-competitive practices, and to harm users of their free software and services by stripping them (us) of private information which can be used against us (them) in ways we do not fully understand.
All that advertising power cannot be good for humankind.
