The role of philosophers and artists (in the wider sense) in society is to contribute to the intellectual development of mankind. The consuming society of the last 30 years has twisted this role into a tool of entertainment, naming any shallow extravanganza an artwork, judging intellectual works as commercial products. Our administrators know that a tool cannot produce any threat, much more when it is there for sale; a free philosophizing mind is the biggest threat to a system that sells hot air; why? But just because it does not comply. Why it does not comply? Because it does not need what they are selling.
