Notes on life, art, photography and technology, by a Danish bohemian and ne'er-do-well.
So "us" responsible and prudent citizens living within our budget don't contribute to progress ? Are we really just relaxing and waiting for somebody else to take risks, do the hard job so that we can benefit from progress ? So people who perform activities that supposedly aren't primarily motivated by material rewards (much less by living beyond their income) such as artists, painters, actors, university professors aren't contributing to progress ?Am I missing the point ?Peace to all !
I think it's rather a joke. But with the added poignancy that there's a nugget of truth to it, and also that many actually believe it really is so, including top economists and politicians. Or they say so.
