    Our society really does undervalue Art.

    This is a great thing. But why just artists? Why not anyone who can entertain, create and teach for the good?  How about the old oral tradition. Let’s tell stories again.

    Good job! Excellent example how to get rid of money slavery. Every person has abundance of abilities which s/he can use in exchange with others and that what makes him/her rich. Not money. 
    I just wish poor countries learn from this idea.

    In my country we do net get a bill when going home from the hospital.
