Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt said that the Russian/Ukraine conflict shows the need for tech giants to support military-industrial complex propaganda.
Schmidt claimed during his appearance on CNBC’s “Power Lunch” on Monday that tech giants need to march in lockstep to globalist national security priorities from now on.
“The war is going to help solidify the tech companies’ understanding of why national security is important,” Schmidt said.
“If you believed, falsely, that 10 years ago, that war had been eliminated, that conflict was eliminated, we didn’t need militaries and so forth to protect us, then you would say, ‘Let’s not work with the government, let’s not focus on this stuff.’ And I think we’ve unfortunately and horrifically put that argument to bed. We need a strong national security in our country, and the tech industry needs to support it,” he added.
Schmidt called for Google and other tech giants to inundate Russia with propaganda in order to undermine their national sovereignty.
“I think we are collectively better keeping them integrated with information,” Schmidt said, claiming that the control of information by monolithic tech corporations is helping Russian citizens “see what they’re missing out [on].”
