Arts & Culture: The American Right

I just watched Kevin Spacey on Hardball (msnbc.com). It doesn’t matter what political side you are on. The arts and culture are should be rights of all Americans to have and to protect. As Spacey says in this segment, it’s not about who hates the arts (the act of cutting budget on programs such as PBS or Metropolitan Museum of Art), but it’s about making the Arts and the Arts Education a must-priority of our country.

We need to fight and protect the ARTS. This is for our children and their future.

Who’s with me?

  1. Please cite where in the U.S. Constitution that it states that “the arts” are a guaranteed right “to have and protect.”

    1. I can’t cite those precise words in the Constitution, but here’s why I wrote that sentence.
      The Preamble states:
      We the people of United States in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

      The arts definitely promotes the general welfare and shapes the culture. This blessing of liberty is our right and that of our future generations.

      Thanks for commenting!

      1. That’s a really interesting point about the arts promoting general welfare. I’d never thought about that before at all.
