Spotify used to be a platform for music for everyone to equally enjoy. However, spotify follows the general societal trend of politicizing and polarising every aspect of our daily lives despite being a music platform. The creators force their views on the community by applying controversial rules or simply putting political messages on their main pages that not everyone might agree on. They also promote musicians they prefer because of their political views, but suppress musicians with differing political views - even if they are part of the general democratic spectrum. Spotify should be about music, and it should include the whole political spectrum - not only the preferred viewpoint of the creator. Furthermore, it should try to take a mostly neutral stance and provide music, not politics. It should not be an amplifier or instrumentalized for political messaging, it should be a platform dedicated to music. It should never suppress any artist from expressing his art, with the sole exception of direct calls for violence or persecution of a group. Note that I am german and this has nothing to do with US politics. I am speaking in a general sense.
