Will the Affordable Care Act Spark the New Enlightenment?

No, seriously. What would you do with your life if you knew your healthcare was covered? Would finally put the desk job behind you and live off ramen until your creative and intellectual endeavors started paying enough to live, safe in the knowledge that if you got a cavity you wouldn’t have to go into ludicrous amounts of debt?

All around the US, people unshackled from the workaday world will dedicate themselves to the furtherment of humanity! The starving artist will have enough time and security to become the successful one! Works of staggering beauty and intellect which would never have been realized will be added to the sum total of Mankind’s Work! It will be as it was in Atlantis!

Sounds very romantic, and I don’t mean that in a snide way. I have zero information on whether the arts have burgeoned in Massachusetts. But we can hope, right?
