To me, the job of the artist is to provide a useful and intelligent vocabulary for the world to be able to articulate feelings they experience everyday, and otherwise wouldn’t have the means to express in a meaningful and useful way.

Quality of Life
- Peace and prosperity for all people
- Make violence and brutality, especially war extinct
Homo sapiens are smart enough to create a flourishing planet and Win-Win [rather than Win-Lose] relationships.
In the Marvin Gaye classic, “What’s Going On,” he sang, War is not the answer. Maybe, once upon a time when there were only a few million people, conquest was an option. Now, with billions and billions and high-powered weapons, there’s too little space for bickering.
In personal affairs and of decision makers, consider:
— Zig ZiglarFor I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. … Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.
— Matthew 25: 35-40The test of a civilization is in the way that it cares for its helpless members.
