How an Ideal Society Can Sustain Artists, Etc

I initially used the term ‘feed’ instead of sustain. That sounds little demeaning and narrow. ‘Sustain’ covers the broader needs of a well-rounded individual.

So, how can we sustain artists, etc, in an ideal society? Our current economic system is quite antithetical to this goal. The system is based on artificial scarcity and hyper commerce. Everyone needs to constantly sell and buy stuff. An extreme example would be, if you make a piece of art, people ask you to sell it, make it into a business, scale it, etc. See what I mean?

We are much more than producers and consumers of stuff.

Honestly, I am not even completely okay in charging money for conducting psychological counseling. I feel like money corrupts the process and the essence.
