    Post Governmental spending

    Hello guys, I've written a new article and I'm ready to take notes. Thanks in advance.


    Some people think that the government is wasting money on the arts and that this money could be better spent elsewhere.
    To what extent do you agree with this view?



    Governmental spending has always been a controversial subject, many people believe that when it comes to prioritizing the spending sources, the government somehow fails to do it according to what is really important like housing and education and what isnít. One of the popular issues related to this subject is how much money spent on the arts, in my opinion the budget allocated for arts is just too big. Iím not trivializing the role of the art, I believe itís the title of our human civilization and creativity. But, on the other hand, in this competitive and hectic world we live in, we have much bigger issues to deal with. Nowadays the levels of poverty, unemployment, and homelessness are shockingly high and increasing every day. And as I mentioned, the arts play a symbolic role of addressing and preserving our civilization for the generations to come, but without giving enough time, money and effort to solve our critical issues and make sure that everyone gets a fair opportunity in life, there wonít be much of a civilization to be preserved.

    Re: Governmental spending

    Next sentence. Say:

    I am not trivializing the role of the arts.

    I don't understand the rest of that one.

    Re: Governmental spending

    I’m not trivializing the role of the art, I believe it’s the title of our human civilization and creativity. But, on the other hand, in this competitive and hectic world we live in, we have much bigger issues to deal with

    In that sentence, I was trying to say that I understand how important the art is for our civilization, but the government needs to direct its financial resources into the more critical issues like, unemployment.

    Re: Governmental spending

    "The title of our human civilization" seems to be a brand new phrase. As such it is not going mean anything to anybody.

    Perhaps:

    Government can't do everything and shouldn't try.

    Perhaps:

    Art plays an important role in our culture. But if has to be secondary to fulfilling basic needs.
