Affordable housing. That’s not a very sexy answer, but it’s true. If we had universal healthcare and affordable housing, people could be more creative, sleep better at night, and live longer.

Yeah, let’s take everyone else’s money so I can just sit around and paint shit all day. That’s a totally fair thing to do to other people. The whole ‘living wages for artists’ movement makes me fucking sick. If you can’t find a way to support yourself through your art, you’re not looking in the right places, and that’s not anyone else’s problem. I neither want nor deserve special treatment just because I chose to pursue art/design, and moreover, I don’t want to be treated like a little kid who can’t help themselves.
Your book argued for better than that. For shame, Austin.
