Google’s changable map boundaries

According to a Tweet by Lee Monroe, Product Designer Mail Gun , Google changes country map boundaries, depending on what country you’re in. What this says about power and the relative nature of borderlines is apparent and reminds of of that quote by Mr Da Vinc Code himself;

“History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, ‘What is history, but a fable agreed upon?” ― Dan Brown
