President Obama’s economic stimulus package will likely include millions of dollars in funding for the arts.
Millions for violins may seem like wasteful spending to many, initially, when still there are no jobs and money is earmarked by a president with very big ears for communities that still matter.
In the end, the investment into the backbone of civilized culture, made by our next President, will prove historically, to be the leadership decision that changed the concept of modern art.
Factories that hire many are managed directly by the government. Almost everyone is offered a job working on the pyramids of a new Egypt.
A million points of light.
We will build solar panels, in a Hoover Dam project of the new millennium and construct a public education system that damns all to Master’s level apprenticeships. No more dropouts. College degrees are mandatory.
Drug laws are banished.
Harvard will always be there, but no longer will produce the best.
Teachers teach as women factory workers during the war, but are our new ‘presidents’.
Children of tomorrow are born into freedom, not capitalism.
Obama’s new Home Garden incentive will spawn millions in private contract funding and solve the immigration issue.
Front lawns will be transformed into private, organic greenhouses where robots and Mother Nature does most housework. Most choose to still get their hands dirty and work the soil, simply because it’s still feels good to be alive and not working at Walmart.
Knitting circles are how women share stories again.
Oprah goes off the air. Video games are banned. Again we are taught to read.
Our plan will be objected to initially; but as each town and city is welcomed with soft cash for the arts, a light of hope for tomorrow will shine. Our children will pull up their baggy jeans and learn of the softness and beauty of musical theater.
Gay men will be in demand.
Well- funded public libraries, community theaters and art museums everywhere!
Welfare to work programs that embrace the concept that it is not necessary for everyone to have jobs, but those who don’t should have flat-screen televisions and a little more than just cheese and butter.
Yes, it’s time for change.
Lots of it.
