The executives at Netflix are apparently panicking over the company's major loss of subscribers – that's the reasonable conclusion, anyway, after reading the company's understated broadside against wokeness:
A new corporate culture memo from Netflix is taking a hardline stance on attempts to silence artistic expression by warning those who are offended by the streaming service's content that they may want to go find a job somewhere else...
The updated Netflix Culture memo includes a new section called "Artistic Expression" that states that it will not "censor specific artists or voices" even if employees consider the content "harmful."
"If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you," the memo states, later adding that employees may be required to work on projects that they "perceive to be harmful" and that if they have a hard time accepting their work assignment, they might want to consider working somewhere else.
Netflix right now to all of its hard-left employees looking to gin up absurd woke controversy over movies that bother them:
Actually the full length of the brief directive is worth reading in full:
Entertaining the world is an amazing opportunity and also a challenge because viewers have very different tastes and points of view. So we offer a wide variety of TV shows and movies, some of which can be provocative. To help members make informed choices about what to watch, we offer ratings, content warnings and easy to use parental controls.
Not everyone will like—or agree with—everything on our service. While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what's appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices.
As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you'd find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you.
That last line is the coup de grâce. Absolutely no uncertainty about what it means: If you're bothered by a movie that doesn't conform to the latest absurd and indefensible woke standards...
After years of woke insanity at most levels of our culture, this is a good sign indeed.
