The World Culture is suffering from the financial crisis and lack of interest.
By Kurt Lykke Lindved Ambassador Culture UN
The financial situation may have been a mental limit on the artists’ self-expression and creativity in real life, which again is a sign of major setbacks and perhaps a beginning to patriotism worst elements where the greed comes before the love for our fellowmen.
Unemployed and poor people spend their energies on simple survival maneuver while the rich and wealthy are using energy to break free from the poor just as we see it in Europe today. It is comparable to the situation before the second world war, but I refuse to believe that man can be so stupid, that they once again will put everything at risk because of economical considerations.
Culture as a bridge-builder fills unfortunately only a fraction of the opportunities that exist today, and the bridge construction is often delayed because of the dominant areas such as economics, politics and religion. It is difficult to predict the future in all aspects of life, but I’m sure that next generation will use energy and resources to be action talented in the world distribution of the earth’s valuable possibilities in a whole, different and better way than we have seen so far, when the world was divided into A, B and C people by the people who have “locked” any direct confrontation with the reality of life.
