Ben Jonson: Politics? My play has nothing to do with politics. It's just a simple comedy.
Earl of Oxford: It showed your betters as fools who'd go through life barely managing to get food from plate to mouth were it not for the cleverness of their servants. All art is political, Jonson, otherwise it would just be decoration. And all artists have something to say, otherwise they'd make shoes. And you are not a cobbler, are you Jonson.
I'm a firm believer that art is a statement and not just some sculptured stone or paint on canvas, perhaps not political but it strives to communicate something or it really is just decoration. However, I'm also of the 'I don't know if it's art but I know what I like' school as well. Most video games are decoration but some are art.
