Roger L. Simon » POLIWOOD: Tin Ears in Tinseltown – Will Hollywood Miss the Impact of the Election?
Most actors were always on the Left. That has held true for over a hundred years. The change is that seventy years ago the actors were just hired talent who controlled exactly nothing. At that time the industry was run by the studio bosses, who were usually Republicans. The villain is the SCOTUS who destroyed a great American industry in United States v. Paramount, the anti-trust case of 1948. That did to the Creative industry what Obama did to the Transportation industry and is attempting to do to the Health Care industry. By destroying the corporate structure that had united investors and management it turned control over to a highly paid minority of labor and their lawyers.
The old Studio Bosses may have been monsters who either flattered the talent by calling them Kings or destroyed them by treating them as "Idiots with Underwoods" but they built the dream factories.
The current empowerment of navel gazing has destroyed Paradise and consumes without harnessing productively The Life of The Mind.
