Final Thoughts

We'll I learned that I don't know how to make a PDF turn sideways. But over all the piece was very interesting. I agreed with many things that they said, though for different reasons. I did like this quote though very much, "All of us, no matter what we do, have a right to make moral decisions about the world." (10). I find that a very interesting statement.

Though, the writer seems to be very bias towards artist. As if an artist is the only type of person who can transcend the cultural lock. They put artist on this pedestal and spends 20 odd pages loving them. But hey, who can fault someone for liking their profession.

Also, this artist really only focused on writers, there was reference to Picasso and then the poster and Bob Dylan but really, this person didn't mean to say artist but writers should think outside the box of culture. So really, I agree with the message that we should not just blindly follow the government, they do a bad job of boxing in artists which they already stated that they don't like when people do that. So this person seems a bit hypocritical to me.

But like the fake paper, it might just be that written work is just the easiest to present. I just feel that this person's use of artist is far to closed minded to be an artist themselves.

Article Idea

I think I'll write something about society finally realizes that video games are an actual art form and that violent ones are not the blame for situations like columbine. They will realize that hey, it's the family that needs to put perspective on what the child sees whether it's on tv or in a game.
