Closing down political free speech at Google could create a tyranny of tolerance and undermine integrity. Even small shifts like this would threaten Google culture and send business risk through the roof. Politics is important to discuss in the context of business it seriously correlates the way/customers we all feel, which is increasingly relevant to business? It’s those with integrity that care that maintain an organisations integrity: they raise and address difficult issues so manage risk. Integrity is maintained by aligning actions with beliefs else you create more people who don’t care. This is why political correctness doesn’t work and creates nonces and numpties and ultimately can corrupt even the best or prevent good people from joining organisations.
