Another group of people who tend to look down on the nine-to-fivers is artists. This is particularly inappropriate in the case of those artists who get paid by subsidies, because: see above. An argument that is often made in this context is that art is not a luxury, as can be seen from the fact that even cavemen, who certainly were poor, practiced art. Let's accept this argument. It does not invalidate the view that paying specialists to create art is a luxury. I believe it is - people tend to put food on the table first, and then, perhaps, contemplate whether it is worth shelling out to see another staging of Hamlet. I'm sure the cavemen's priorities were similarly structured: dead men don't do sculpture.
