Thread Name: BS: Capitalism and the Arts
Subject: RE: BS: Capitalism and the Arts
I don't think that capitalism has 'anything' to do with the arts. As Chet says " artists are going to do what they do whether they get rich at it or not,"
And to paraphrase Vixen's second point. The one thing that capitalists DON'T do to get rich, is to WORK for their money (because that's not in her list of 7 sins).
All good artists work bloody hard to produce their art.
