Love the example sentence "you sound tired", like a scenario in which a caring sister talks to her faraway younger brother over the phone.

So the socially engaged artists of JFK's time were what? Subversives?


Nice point! Love the word "subversive", which is the kind of power artists do have. Seems that Mr.Kennedy believed "art for art's sake", which is a total cliche to me, for artists limited in their own narrow area is just a sad consequence of specialisaion, and being socially isolated results in an egocentric art as well as failing to make changes in the society as a whole.

In so-called free society, artists are but servants of the market.
