Of course there's beauty in art and creation. But when people and groups like Justin Bieber and One Direction are being passed off as 'artists' by a sizable chunk of humanity, you have to wonder if there's much beauty to be found any longer. Even our innovation has been stifled in recent years. We, as a species, used to aspire to go to the moon and beyond. Now the masses sit with their thumbs up their ***** waiting for the next iPhone. And they're happy. They're content with that.

Destruction is as prevalent as ever while creation has been cheapened and squelched to the point where it is difficult to find a relatable or significant artist any longer. I'm just not finding much beauty.
