Google is a little harder, since you also need to avoid Chrome, YouTube, Android devices, chrome cast, etc... But you still can avoid them. You essentially "opt in" when you use their services.

Haha, it's even easier than that. Just don't load the .js and Google's oh-so-scary antics will cease to apply. There's extensions across multiple browsers that do this very thing and Google hasn't said boo about it since most people just choose to opt-in with apathy. They're not sneakily running around trying to trick you into it, if you don't want to be watched they don't give a fuck because most of our peers play ball.

That makes the case that "Google is the same as ISPs" even weaker.
