Stamping out wrongthink
Google created quite a controversy when it tracked down and fired an employee who criticized the company's diversity policy (Daniel Greenfield outlines the story here).
This is, of course, the progressive's fondest dream: that individuals and private institutions should ultimately become so thoroughly imbued with the Approved Narrative that society would eventually wind up policing itself, without the ugly necessity of state-enforced group-think. As of right now, the fact that this story is still capable of generating a fair amount of outrage is a sign that all is not lost; how long a sufficient amount of freedom will last to facilitate this outrage is an open question.
