Yes, there is no need for us to be struggling artists, but would that not make us inferior to the artists that do? Life imitates art. Art imitates life. Comedy and Tragedy. I do not believe majority of the world live without struggle. I do believe that life is with plenty of struggle.
And so, if we wish to cater pieces that resonate with majority of the audience, struggle we must, and show it in our art, we must.
But if we are to sell ourselves, to the niche crowd, carry on.
Damn us all to Pompeii…
Ignorance is bliss.
Bliss is perhaps ignorance.
