The Power of Creative Intention for Creativepreneurs Part 1: Three Core Creative Principles

Don't Be Good, Be True.

Do the arts make us better people? Richard Posner, US federal judge and legal theorist, insists not. Look, he says, at the narrative arts like film and literature, that have the strongest claim on morality.  Yet moral atrocities abound, all the way back to the “rape, pillage, murder, human and animal sacrifice, concubinage, and slavery in the Iliad” that made Plato want to ban Homer from his ideal republic.
