£74m spent on Edvard Munch's the Scream could have helped 1.3m people in the East African famine. But it didn't, it was spent on a painting, and everybody clapped. I've yet to see anything in the news coverage or comment that's questioned a value system which thinks this is ok. I don't think God is clapping.
Eventually, moth and rust will destroy this picture, and one can only hope this becomes a moment we look back on with shame.
