Art- funded by everyone, for the benefit of art lovers.

Art is a massive private industry, there is no need or good from public subsidies of Art.


  • Art was thriving well before government started funding it.
  • Art had to appeal to people, rather than to Govt. or bureaucrats
  • Shakespeare in his day was commercially successful, today the royal Shakespeare company gets 50% of its funding from Government. It doesn't even have to write the plays.
  • State crowds out private funding
