Culture workers and taxes
In Sweden, you can get your hands on tax payers money:
A) If you work to preserve old art or other old atrefacts of interrest. And.
B) If you work within the schools of arts.
That's right. You don't even have to sell anything or make anything that people actually want. You still get your hands in the cookie jar, supporting yourself on the behalf of the taxpayers.
A) is OK! I'm totally for people and projects that preserves artefacts of interest.
B) on the other hand, is just crazy! Most of the money goes straight in to the pockets of thousands of Self righteous, Left leaning dumbvits that can't support themselves on what they are doing! Because if you take a random culture worker, in 99 cases out of 100, you can be pretty much sure that they votes for the socialists. And why would they not, their livelyhood depends on the socialists giving them hand outs! So option B is nothing more than hand outs to the socialistic parties.
Why not give the people tax cuts instead, so they can go and spend it on whatever culture they want. May that be Disney on ice or to watch art collections in museums.
The gratest painters in history never got a penny for things they did not sell. Neither did any of the greatest composers or other artists of any other kind.
You should get what you deserve and deserve of what you get. Nothing less, nothing more. I'm tired to pay people of whom I have never heard of even, with my tax money!
