Substitute health care or decent housing for "it" and does it still sound so logical????I just want to know how you'd build a theater that had "nothing but *****ty seats?"
"Every section is the nose-bleed section!"
"One and all, bring your binoculars! You can't see ish in our house!"
My husband says, "Obviously there is value in a good seat vs. a bad seat. As long as people are willing to pay those higher prices, then why shouldn't they? If you can't afford it, you do what you can."
Amneris, just curious...in all of your travels to the UK, the US, Trinidad, Caribbean, etc. you always flew business/coach class, right?
Obviously I am not equating seats on a plane or in a theatre with health care... but to me the mentality is similar... that anyone with money should automatically get the best of anything.... and those who can't afford it, sucks to be you, even if the distinction between cheap and expensive is arbitrary. I know that attitude isn't going anywhere anytime soon, but it doesn't mean I have to agree with it or think it is the only "logical" view.
Who said anything about building a theatre with nothing but bad seats? I said that seats of all types should be available to a variety of income levels.
A secondary point is that theatres and sets should be designed with reasonable sightlines from anywhere in the house.
So, when you travel, and have traveled in the past you used business/coach class, right? You've NEVER travelled First Class? Right?
