Support the Arts

One man sees a play which he really enjoys.  He tells his friends that they should go see it and they do, thus the play is a success.

Another man sees a play that he really enjoys.  He tells his friends and everyone else that they must give the play $5.  It does not matter if they see it or not.  To those who object he offers scorn and criticism for their failure to support the arts, and forcibly takes the money from them.  After all, the play is art and must have support.

The former reflects the natural order of things, while the latter reflects governments view of things.

Personally, I prefer the former.
