When You Search On Google, Google Panders To Your Pre-Defined Belief System

Did you know that when you search for something on Google the results you see are "tailored" to your own personal belief system? Try it yourself sometime if you don't believe me. Do a search for something controversial such as something political for example and have your friends and family do the exact same search. Then watch as you all get different results based on how Google has defined your personality based on your past search history. Try it with different search terms and see how Google is pandering to your own belief system and setting you up in a self reinforcing feedback loop that only lets you see what you want to see and not the other sides of what may actually exist. Scary stuff and a great reason to stop using Google.
