Privacy and Anti-Censorship Alternatives to Google

By Tim Gamble

Over the weekend, Google served notice that hey will be removing the America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) website from Google search results (see news story). This is a blatant act of censorship, but not surprising. It is only the latest in a long line of decisions by Google punishing by censorship those websites and individuals who hold views contrary the "woke" views held by Google. 

When I posted the news story to Gettr (follow me: https://gettr.com/user/timgamble ), it generated lots of comments, and lots of suggestions for free-speech, privacy-oriented alternatives to Google search that do not engage in censorship. 

Suggested alternatives to Google search:
  • DuckDuckGo (the most recommended alternative)
  • Brave Search (currently in Beta, but open to the public)
  • StartPage (the second most recommended, and the one recommended by Tech Guru and Privacy Expert Rob Braxman) 
  • Qwant (European-based, so it is governed by stricter EU privacy laws) 
  • Peekier (I am not familiar with it, but it was mentioned by some) 
  • Metager (I am not familiar with it, but it was mentioned by some)
  • SwissCows (family-friendly, it does censor porn, but not political content)
Many commentors also suggest using the Brave browser as a good alternative to Google Chrome. I personally use Brave as my main browser, and Brave search as my main search engine. I also occasionally use Qwant and DuckDuckGo. 

Privacy and Free Speech are major issues for all preppers and survivalists - and all patriots in fact. This will only increase as we more forward into the dystopian, technocratic, high-tech world that we have already entered.
