The 3 things people really should not talk are politics, religion, and money. It never ends well. That’s not my rule. That’s the golden rule, a basic principle that should always be followed to ensure success.
That’s why Silicone Valley company Coinbase has announced that it will not engage with pressing political and social issues. Employees who disagree are offered exit packages.
Toxicity in the work place has reached new levels. Why? People can’t stop talking about politics.
Politics has infiltrated everything. Sports, Social Media, School, Music, Work, Church, Playgrounds. There isn’t an escape and people are mentally exhausted.
Because people broke the social norm of avoiding these 3 things, the deluge of vitriol swamping American politics has now swarmed the workplace. Because it leads to conflict, arguments, and silent resentment, it’s resulting in the lack of productivity in the workplace.
Back to Coinbase folks. CEO Brian Armstrong declared that his “mission focused” company would ignore all issues outside of its goal to foster “an open financial system for the world.” The manifesto offers that the company will minimize attention on things like policy, non-profit work, “broader societal issues,” and politics to the degree they are unrelated to its core goal.
For the employees who “don’t feel comfortable with the new direction” of the company are free to leave.
“I predict most successful companies will follow Coinbase’s lead. If only because those who don’t are less likely to succeed,” tweeted Graham.
I agree with Graham. A company is unified through its mission. Apple’s mission is “to bring the best personal computing products and support to students, educators, designers, scientists, engineers, businesspersons and consumers in over 140 countries around the world.”
Apple can’t carry out its mission if they become laser beamed focus on politics. Instead of Apple bringing the best computing products, they’ll bring out the worst in people.
The golden rule stands today as it did a 100 years ago.
I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.” –Mark Twain.
Watch out for Jenna Lotti and the track How To Be Loved. It’s reminiscent of Swift, prior to her indie folk creative endeavor. The Massachusetts native appeared on NBC’s Songland. She pitched her original song to songwriter Julia Michaels. Picking up coverage from Billboard, American Songwriter, Earmilk and LadyGunn, she also received ASCAP’s first ever Peggy Lee Songwriter Award for her original song, “Fake Id”. She has opened for Dan + Shay, Barns Courtney and Hunter Hayes. Give it a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
Since we first featured Tokyo’s Revenge, he went on to release a bunch of EP’s – the 2019 EPs MDNGHT (SIDE A) and MDNGHT (SIDE B) and joint project with Joey Trap called Trapped in Tokyo.
Tokyo isn’t just painting himself as a rapper, but as an artist that incorporates all genres. He grew up listening to JayZ, Original Flavor, Slipknot, and Disturbed. When did you ever hear a rapper cite Slipknot as an influence?
He made became known through the track “Goodmorningtokyo! Speaking about his debut track, here is what he says. “I think I know I’m gonna blow up because sometimes I feel like my music is garbage. ‘GoodMorningTokyo!,’ I hate that song. I’m like, Damn, I hate my own music, then I sit down in front of my computer, and mix and master my own music, and put in all this work, and then I put a tiny snippet after not posting on Instagram for a month-and-a-half, and people lose their minds over it. And it reminds me that the thing about blowing up isn’t just about whether you make music that people like, it’s about whether or not you can convey their emotions well through the medium of music.
He just dropped the latest 7 song EP, 7VEN. Give it a listen.
Los Angeles singer Belaro shares the video for the track Forever. Give it a couple listens and you’ll be hooked, especially if you like uptempo tracks made for the club. Her debut single came out in 2019 called FGirl that garnered some attention. The latest release is a departure from her debut single as it borrows from the 70’s – the disco era. Whereas artists jumped on 80’s trend, it’s nice to hear someone borrow from the decade before because the 70’s produced a lot of cool sounds. The track had a strong start landing on Spotify’s “just hits”, “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds: Pop”. Give it a listen.
