Apparently you've defined "the arts" as things people don't want to pay for and hence you think the government should pay for them.

I define the arts as things artist make.

> only someone who mostly consumes art but doesn't create it says otherwise.

I've created art that has collectively sold to 20-30 million people. Have several titles to my name and have hundreds of artist friends making $70k-$150k + royalties across various industries. I can look at the credits list of any movie or video game and see hundreds, sometimes thousands more. Also have friends doing patreon, etsy, and youtube making a living making art.

"The Arts" are doing just fine.
