To characterize the affects and effects of persons as the affects and effects of art is an old and easy error that distracts persons from some basic facts: a person or persons, employing a variety of tools, sometimes can predictably affect their environment; a tool is a tool only because persons use it to affect their environment; and a tool, independent of its use, in itself, affects the environment only insofar as it is present. Art is a tool like any other.
