Yes, France, Google is actually a puppet organization for the NSA (and the Bush family) and its true purpose is to proliferate the English language and American culture further into your backyard. Soon your children will only consider French as a "necessary" language to get by in your country while English will be their preferred language for speaking, Skypeing, reading (i.e. Marvel Comics, DC Comics), and of course Googling:

Google Online Book Plan Sparks French War of Words
by Timothy Heritage

February 18, 2005

France's national library has raised a "war cry" over plans by Google to put books from some of the world's great libraries on the Internet and wants to ensure the project does not lead a domination of American ideas.

Jean-Noel Jeanneney, who heads France's national library and is a noted historian, says Google's choice of works is likely to favor Anglo-Saxon ideas and the English language.

He wants the European Union to balance this with its own program and its own Internet search engines.

"It is not a question of despising Anglo-Saxon views ... It is just that in the simple act of making a choice, you impose a certain view of things," Jeanneney told Reuters in a telephone interview Friday.

"I favor a multi-polar view of the world in the 21st century," he said. "I don't want the French Revolution retold just by books chosen by the United States. The picture presented may not be less good or less bad, but it will not be ours."

Jeanneney says he is not anti-American, and that he wants better relations between Europe and the United States. But like French President Jacques Chirac, he says he wants a multi-polar world in which U.S. views are not the only ones that are heard.

His views are making waves among intellectuals in France, where many people are wary of the impact of American ways and ideas on the French language and culture. (full article)
