Do artists have a responsibility to speak out?

With this whole Chantal Kreviazuk thing, what do fellow babblers think about the role of artists to speak out against injustice?


I think an artist should have integrity.  You're not a bank, you're not an oil company, your not--or shouldn't be--simply a profit making machine.  It's only in the last 60 years that music became this vapid, commercialized bore filled with the same cliches recycled again and again over the years.  For most of human history music has been the heart and soul and voice of the community.

when you'd get thrown in jail for SAYING it, you sang it instead.
