But should they be harnessed with the responsibility of proposing solutions??Or is that a job better left to public policy makers?
Now, I can see that constantly writing material that is seen as merely bitching would get tired pretty quick--I'm not sure I see the artist playing the role of problem solver.
I keep thinking of Gwar shows--ever see them??Man--they were sooo theatrical and pretty much violated every possible rule--offending EVERYONE!!.But,ooooh the shows were so primal..so much about ripping away every social convention...and wallowing in the muck!!!A big general "fuck you" to the society we find ourselves living in.....
Its all about expression--and sometimes that is not pretty--its angry, reactionary--ugly.
