The problem of whether or not artists, musicians and poets deserve the fiancial support from the government has set up various debates around the world. In my opinion, the governments ought to concentrate more on other priorities instead.
It is undeniable that there are some facts that make it worth helping artitsts. First of all, the role of art, music and literature is often considered as indelible in people's daily lives since they yield spychological improvment, such as relief from stress, and some physical advantages, for example, decreasing pain. Marvelous pieces of art as well as magnificent novels not only promote the beauty of human's life but also positively permeate our perpsepctives and even shape our thinking. Another reason for the dominance of art in general is that it reflects indigenous cultures and helps passing tradition and knowledge to younger generations. Therefore, there are these advocates who think it is neccessary for the goverments to interfere in the financial situation of art creators in order to keep them doing their jobs. On the other hand, the average income of people working on the fields of art is often lower than that of others which leads to deprived lives of many artists such as Van Goh.
Despite these facts, goverment spending on art is still a watse of money, Due to the upsurge of communicating methods using high-tech devices and telecommunication, it is not difficult for artists to find extra job offers in related fields, thereby making them capable of making the ends meet. Besides, it is commonplace that business is getting invovled considerably in making art, especially in music fields. In Vietnam, a famous musician with goood reputation could earn more than fifty million VND for only one song, which is the result of collaboration with big music companies. So, art, music and literature are more likely to financially benefit private sectors than the governments. In the light of these facts, governmental finance should be spent on other priorities such as health care, economic subsidy and so on.
In conclusion, even though art has been an essential part in human's life, the government should not pay too much attention to this field. Expenditures on art and the like is unwise since it does not bring much benefit for the government itself.
