@distractedmosfet The library taxonomies (Dewey, LOC, ??) *are* a significant part of search engines, just slow ones.
In the 1990s I knew plenty of people who were so sure that folksonomies and full-text search would free us from the tyranny of libraries. The things we didn't see coming.
I feel like attacks on public management of web search engines would be very rapid and awful, starting from where SEO and political stuff is now.
