As authors, it's NOT our job to make political comment. I have reasons for believing this. Long held and clearly defined. Why? I remember the Dixie Chicks. Remember them?
In 2003 they made a comment. That's all it took to take them from Country Music Darlings to Total Pariahs. My writing career is worth far too much to me.
Remember this? "Ten years ago today, Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks stood in front of a crowd at Shepherd’s Bush Empire Theatre in England, and uttered these now infamous words:
“Just so you know, we’re on the good side with y’all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”" Destroying The Dixie Chicks
Whatever I may think of feel about politics, you don't want to know it and i don't want to share it.
