Post your hateful trash in other places, not in this great creative website. Thanks
Nigel Simpson, the issue isn't about refusing to participate in politics, it's about not transforming any field of life into political arenas - even though I understand the commercial motivations of this approach, see how many views already for the Trump article compared to other articles. No matter if you quote Plato or Abraham Lincoln, politics should be discussed in appropriate places, which are countless. Once you open this door, you bring all the hate and divisiveness which come with it and I don't think it is welcome in an educative website like No Film School. Still, there have been already 3 papers based on politics since October 5th - the others are the ones about SNL and Shyamalan. Read all the comments on this page and see how many come from people who are deeply frustrated.
No Film School is an absolute genius website and like many other places they opened the door to the political circus. Many people around are very unhappy about this tendency and still, various institutions will do it for commercial reasons because it's clickbait, or for political agenda. No Film School and Jason Hellerman, if you have any kind of compassion for your fellow film industry professionals, don't turn this website into political trash. You're better than that.
