Politics Is Ruining The Arts - Clifton Duncan

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #285
7

Clifton Duncan returns to the podcast to discuss the importance of creating culture that we can all share and the role the arts play in our shared experience. He and Bridget discuss the erosion of the spiritual well-being of our society, how art is what a civilization leaves behind once its gone, the effect that politics and political correctness are having on the arts in general, the loss of men and masculinity in the arts, and the reason good art is transcendent appeals to our common humanity. They also cover Clifton's crowd funded Thomas Sowell play, the backlash to making art more politically overt in one direction, how being a professional idiot is really difficult, why normal people don't go into theater, the importance of a live audience, and why neither one of them wants to be just another talking head.
