Re: Price too high
It is generally considered that the greatest fault of communism is that there is no incentive to produce, but for me, what's even worse is that there are no rich people. Art needs rich people—art in all of its manifestations—painting and sculpture, music, dance, great automobiles, great architecture, fashion design. We need rich people to finance all of that wonderful stuff we want to make.
I don't even try to sell my stuff to wage slaves; I go where the rich people are. When I was young I lived in Fort Lauderdale. Back in the 1960's and '70's, just about every person on the East Coast who was rich enough that they didn't have to work would spend their winters in South Florida. What a picnic. Money was everywhere.
