a commission nightmare, when artists should use various revenue streams, inappropriate material in our schools, big tech & government agencies controlling narrative

a commission nightmare, when artists should use various revenue streams, inappropriate material in our schools, big tech & government agencies controlling narrative
sharing my latest nightmares, lol -- probably the most bizarre yet. as an artist, is the income you're bringing in coming from various sources? how do you know which ones are best for you and where to put your time? do you have kids in public schools and how is your community ensuring that proper material is available to them? did your public schools participate in "banned book week" and how did you feel about it? i've got a ton of questions on this subject -- not a lot of answers, but i thought we could put our heads together on the topic and see what we think. speaking of opinions, did you see the recent senate hearing with big tech, josh hawley of missouri and louisiana's ron johnson? they revealed weekly email communication between government agecies (cdc) and big tech facebook (meta) regarding misinformation and how to controll/censor certain topics, opinions and accounts.
