Arts and Politics - Arts and Politics Many artists tend to overwork themselves and get frustrated. Even if they were to work 18 hours a day on a project, many of them still wouldn’t be able to pat themselves on the shoulder and say “You’ve done a great job. You should be happy!” Of all the times they say it, they rarely feel it. But when you get down to the bottom of it, they absolutely love to do it. Just like that, Emilie gets neurotic when she works, and hence she prefers to work alone at night. Upon my insistence she reveals some of the secret characteristics of her artist persona: she gazes at the drawing, moves back, gazes some more, moves closer, speaks to herself and works for long hours until the pict...   [tags: Arts Politics Essays] 874 words

Another important reason is that corporate interests run the United States government, and young people see individual efforts such as voting to be futile in the face of these powerful opponents....   [tags: Politics Political Essays] 940 words

We are not going to be divided by class’ (cited in Harrigan, 2000: 6).
