I have to say that I am severely bummed out that there was a very political post here in community. I feel like an island that should remain un-infected by todays violent politics .. became infected. I would have felt the same way if someone posted encouraging a Red Wave .. a Blue Wave .. it makes no difference .. very strong emotions are on both side. No matter how one looks at it .. it is a critical time not only in American but also in other countries .. we can debate which side has been more violent, which side is telling lies, what kind of government is best .. but it is my opinion (and I am not alone) that we should NOT be doing that here. Some of us (including Raf) had agreed to a ban on politics in Community posts .. trouble and bad feeling had resulted in a political post before (the color of that post was Red - the color of the recent post was Blue). I ask artists to refrain from blatantly political posts that try to recruit others to their side /or/ demonize the 'other' side. The effort to create good music (art) should unite us and not divide us. Let the rest of the world fight in out (which I am sure will continue and get worse) let the rest of the world divided into tribes that despise each other, hate each other, and insult each other. But let none of us bring that infectious disease .. here. Let us artists, at least, respect each other at this critical time of the world. If anyone wants to start a separate 'Politics' area (not in Community) that will allow other people to be interested in or ignore .. well and good .. but not in Community which is meant for all to read.
