  4. The issue opinion that government has a responsibility to support the arts is an interesting and controversial one. This issue is increasingly important in this age of different attitudes to the governmental support of arts. Many people believe that there is no need in governmental support of arts and non-governmental and private organizations must allocate funds and resources for supporting arts, but these people overlook the fact that it is quite impossible to found art and music schools, galleries, museums without governmental support. Furthermore, many kinds of art would not survive without support of government. In this essay, I will argue that government really has a responsibility to support the arts. I’ll give eloquent examples of such support and its necessity.
  5. There are many good reasons for people who assert that it is rather harmful for arts to be supported by government. Classical example they can draw is governmental support of arts in the former Soviet Union. Soviet leaders have been carried out their control of arts in the Soviet Union, but they thought that there was necessity to control artists and for many internal ideological reasons. In spite of the control, Soviet government supported the arts through different state organizations and institutions, and many real masterpieces were created by the Soviet people in that period. Government must support arts, but not widely control it. There are some good examples of such supporting.
