The article reports on the responsibility of artists and poets in the face of the corruption of human values, the perversion of human intelligence and the enslavement of the human mind with which the rise of the police state threatened the entire Western World. Artists and poets who were able to satisfy themselves fifteen years ago that they had no responsibility for the sickness of the world find themselves today facing inquisition into their private lives conducted in the name, at least, of the government of the United States. And the whole problem is raised anew.
