Frank Doerr raised the question of the political responsibility of SEOs and thus started a very interesting discussion. The timing could not have been more appropriate, right after the Stuttgart 21 riots and before the day of German unity. What is currently going on in Stuttgart is really big cinema. The vast majority are against the project . There can be no question of German unity and unity. In Stuttgart, the people and politics have divided. The executive speaks to the common people with tear gas and water cannons. How mean. In his article, Frank raises the question of whether Seos should not misuse their power over the search engines to influence the parties involved and opinion formation on the Internet. True to the motto: "With Google bombs against tear gas & water cannons". A tempting thought. And a brilliant steep template for further discussions. I have to admit, I have often thought about whether SEO shouldn't be a bit more political. Thanks to Google, Facebook, Twitter & Co. you can hear Hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of people too. And if you're lucky and hit people's nerves, your own words may make the big round. But the comments that have been released from Frank's article are the most exciting thing in the whole story and show that one has to be careful when interpreting texts, images & videos and that it is all too easy to take sides for one page without being sufficient about the overall situation to be informed. True to the motto: "Do not trust statistics that you have not falsified yourself", we should be careful before we throw Google bombs around us or announce the online reputation of unpopular politicians. In relation to the (pure) case “Stuttgart 21 ″, this means that we should not vote pro or contra Stuttgart 21 without being clear about all the facts. That is exactly what we should ask politicians to do. Enlightenment. What does it cost whom and how much? Who makes what and how much? What are the benefits and harms of the city, the country, the state, the politicians, the people and the environment? So I'm not shouting “Stop Stuttgart 21!” Or “Pro Stuttgart 21 ″, I'm asking facts on the table for Stuttgart 21 . Only in this way can I form a fair opinion, only in this way can you participate in the discussion. Democracy needs discourse. Open and honest. Then you can also make and shape politics. Even as SEOs. Or maybe even because you are Seos. Help clarify political issues. To help the truth to be found better, download now! The idea with the photo does not come from me, but goes back to an action by the human rights organization Libereco , whose photo petition I recently stumbled upon . I don't suppose Libereco invented this form of visual expression, but it is definitely a good way to show your face politically. For all motivated and politically committed fellow citizens reading along here a little S21 help material to participate. Flags!
