Lewis über den Tod der Kunst durch die Indifferenz ihres Publikums

Placing things in context is what contemporary students do best. What they do not do is judge. […] This refusal to judge or take offense can be taken as a positive sign, suggesting tolerance and broadmindedness. But there is a broadmindedness so roomy that it is indistinguishable from indifference, and it is lethal. For while the fine arts can survive a hostile or ignorant public, or even a fanatically prudish one, they cannot long survive an indifferent one.
