It turns out that bigotry and intolerance really are the problem.I know the article your talking about and it also explains how/why googled functioned the way it did, and how damore's firing broke it.
(that suzan head of youtube lady is the one who pushed for his de platforming.
Basically google was like the mob/fight club. You dont talk about what happens at google. The employee's had all kinds of internal mail lists and servers and were able to debate explore freely express themselves.
Then google hired a bunch of new college grads, who were more used to cancle culture.
Then they went after damore. When google let him go for expressing himself all the conservative people at google felt attacked and started leaking documents.
Management took the code of silence forgranted, That code of silence basically let the leader ship be honest and candid with the employee's now they cant because shit will get out to the media and it could embarrass the leader ship.
In short they should never have fired damore and found a way to keep the man children working on code.
Too bad none of these children ever learned the lesson that the things that make us angriest reflect the parts of ourselves we refuse to acknowledge..
