Can walking silly be subsidized? Prof. Art Carden has developed some silly walks and is seeking payment for his work. Learn more: http://bit.ly/1HVAtKP
Since he cannot find anyone to pay him voluntarily, perhaps he should apply for a government subsidy for producing silly walks. But while silly walks may benefit society, the fact that people will not pay for their development voluntarily indicates that people do not value silly walks as much as other things people would pay Prof. Carden to do. Sorry to have kept you waiting, it's just I'm afraid my walk has become rather sillier lately. It's taking me longer to get to where I'm going.
I wish someone would pay me to spend more of my time silly-walking. This would add greatly to my happiness, and possibly yours, too.
Are some subsidies valid, though? What about for food? Or for education? How about subsidies for clean energy? Is government assistance definitely better for society? What do you think?
