Part of me thinks that perhaps a World without Art would be better, because then we wouldn’t have anything to distract us from the ugliness of life and we might actually do something about it. Then there is another part of me that argues that a World without Art would be a World that gave up on the beauty of life, the same way a person gives up on the beauty of life before committing suicide. But the thing that nags at me the most is how trivially we treat Art when it is so central to our continued existence. Hell, we can’t even define it.
