Today, I Thought of a Childens Book

It is capitalism that is the biggest threat to art, just as it is to current day democratic politics. Whereas ventures and individuals and groups can buy politicians, policies, and indeed, movements, to ensure that their enterprises are kept safe or allowed to grow, or on the very negative, to destroy another's, the same exists in art. For those producing art, concessions are made to ensure that money is secured, either through success or funding. Success of a particular movement puts pressure on the artist to alter his or her work, influencing the creative process. As a result, in both, originality is lost, inspiration diminished, and a cynical sameness creeps in.
