History shows that fine arts and aesthetics on the one hand and moral and ethic values on the other hand have got the same roots. Art education at home and in school (e.g. learning an instrument, visiting of art exhibitions and concerts) are the best remedy against fanaticism. A world without fanaticism would be a peaceful world.

Many thanks for the interesting chat and challenging topic. It's really heartening to see a museum engage in this kind of dialogue on such a wide-ranging, if timely, theme. I'll definitely be following up on the work of these talented panelists! Thanks, Guggenheim!
