Nations should take first priority in settlement of poverty and unemployments.

One of the fundmental rules of the government is to ensure the social harmony. Poverty and umemployment are two major aspects which hurt the peace of the society. The unsatisfactory to the Chinese government soared after the economics crisis, due to the vast-scaled unemployment in China. To make things worse, the government still spared part of the government fundings to the constructions of some museums, further agitating the public. Chinese goverment’s ignorance of the unemployment partly explained increasing social unrests like parades in HK or riots in Xin Jiang province. Suppose people are in a society where riots could occur anywhere and anytime, most people may probably stay at home rather than have the mood to go to the art museum to enjoy Monalisa from Da vinci. Therefore, if the nations determine to suspend government fundings for the arts and spare these fundings afterwards to tackle the social problems like poverty or unemployment, it can more or less pacify the unrests and low down the possibility of social crisis. Further more, suspending government funding for the arts can never be interpreted as offering no help to arts. There are still pleantiful supplements to assure the prosperity of the arts and the government can do a lot herein. Asking the individuals to sponsor the artists, the musumes might be a good alternative.

Yet, things are not always that optimistic. As we can estimate, even if all fundings saved are for settling the social problems, the total amount of money will still lag far behind what is demanded. That’s to say, saving fundings for the arts is one possible way to ease the social problems, but there are still a lot to do to eradicate poverty or unemployments.

Saving the fundings of is far less enough to settle social problems thoroughly, it can nontheless help ease them. Besides, the government can still offer hands to make sure of the prosperity of the arts in other ways.
