So, what about being an artist and addressing racism, sexism, classism, generalized anxiety-at-difference, psychosis (and psychopaths in particular)...

Go straight at the problems and you have to guard against becoming a choir-preacher, a scold, ham-hands, Stuart Smalley or worse. Take the oblique approach and risk losing everybody or worse (viz. the outcry that "Chicks Dig War" was anti-feminist!).

Say nothing and watch as your time and world decay. (Default option only if you aren't actively feeling the effects of other people's anxiety or psychosis.)

Fourth and long. Punt. Again.
