No, he said that he doesn't like "creative types" and that they don't produce anything that he values. I was pointing out that they produce a wide range of things that we consume, often without thinking about it. It's also worth remembering that creative types have to pay rent and buy toilet paper just like everyone else.What he was saying is that "The Arts" are for leisure.. and who has time for any of that when most People can't afford household supplies, or is trying to build a family, etc... Also, who has time for themselves, let alone time/money for non-productive people's aspirations...?
I'm sorry that you don't have time for books or other entertainment. Books are free at the library, but time isn't free.
