“Maybe beauty should be considered a public good.”
Yes, but it’s more than public art and architecture. It’s people too. One of the more depressing aspects of multi-culturalism is how ugly the non-white world is, in general. If you walk through an uber-vibrant neighborhood, say New York’s Jackson Heights, or through a Chinatown, it’s striking how the street is just packed with ugly everywhere you look.
