Government Run Entertainment?

August 9, 2009

If government run health care is such a great idea, why not apply that model to other industries?  I wonder what the people in Hollywood would think about government run entertainment?  Is that a good idea?  Why or why not?

The government would collect taxes from everybody, or maybe just the rich or perhaps just the rich entertainers, and appoint a government bureacracy to decide which entertainment projects to fund with that tax money.  Then those projects would be free for all to enjoy.

Sounds like a plan.  Do you like it?  I would be really interested in what people in the entertainment would think of such a plan?  I wonder if they think it might work to improve the entertainment industry?  I’d love to hear their thoughts on potential drawbacks and benefits of a single payer entertainment industry.
