“We live in a […] society that denigrates process and deifies product.”

Very true. This is an arts issue, a labor issue and a welfare issue. How do we ensure that art has a value beyond money? How do we prevent the financial exploitation of artists by those eager to profit off the work, yet refuse to subsidize the creation and nurturing of new talent? Should our ability to survive be defined by our financial utility to the economy?

I think the last issue will perhaps the hardest for America to address.

Artists are monkeys who dance to show how cultured their patrons are. In other words, it’s all about the rich people.
