It's become supremely obvious that Google is not only not a “good” company; they're a major player in the tyrannization and oppression of people worldwide. Google enables and empowers both censorship and surveillance by tyrannical governments.
I have some Google products, but I don't actively use any of them. My inactive prepaid Android handset serves the purpose of giving me access to app-powered stuff I couldn't otherwise access (like smart devices), but I don't use it for anything else.
Don't sell your soul to Google. Just don't. It's not worth it.
