Art, politics, culture, freedom and stuff

"Government patronage of the arts produces politicized bureaucrats, not artists..." especially in a left-of-centre culture. And no, he's not talking about the CBC (or various other Cdn arts and culure organizations), but about Australia. If the shoe fits, however, it fits all over the globe.

Art critic Giles Auty at The Institute of Public Affairs in Oz. His topic: "Has government killed Western civilization?" One of many videos from this conference. I've already watched Mark Steyn's and Daniel Hannan's presentations. Amazing stuff.
