Comments on: Art in a recession http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/08/14/art-in-a-recession/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Chris http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2009/08/14/art-in-a-recession/comment-page-1/#comment-8305 Sun, 01 Nov 2009 02:24:43 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=1223#comment-8305 I think we as a nation should start working together to change the way our country is going by helping those who are feeling it the hardest and helping to stop families from losing their homes in foreclosure and evictions. We like to say that the government should be the ones to take over. I say its time to stop waiting and start changing. If each person who says “there’s nothing I can do to change the economy donated fifty cents to a dollar to charities like
http://WWW.HELPFOROURHUMANITY.COM, it would end tens or thousands of families depression from this recession which would free up spending from stressed families , help create jobs through work programs, and circulate funds through out the community starting from the mortgage company, and landlord, on down to the plumber who can now afford to be hired, and the store who gets his business for the part. So I say suck it up America and lets finally become a nation that helps its self instead of waiting to see others do what needs to be done now.

i can understand that: “The difficulty is always in keeping the stories under control.” http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/16/books/ review/Salmon-t.html?ref=business

but, of course, too much (which i thought was your point) and you end up with this sort of thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triumph_of_ the_Will , even if The Economist says it “sealed her reputation as the greatest female filmmaker of the 20th century” without interpreting that statement into the type of detail provided in the deleted reference to a book which rated a positive review from the NYT.

best of luck with it – but try to be honest with yourself in your attempts to understand the difference between adding value and selling out.

Is the idea to try to equate war with modern art? I do think a lot of contemporary art does that but was that the point here? Its fine, but I think there are a lot of artists that have peace and love to share – not war or politics.. at least I hope!
