The Cost of Art versus the Cost of Life

Of course, the cost of a human life is priceless. No parent wants to lose a child, no child their parent and so forth.

That said though, what, in real terms, is the cost of a life, and under what circumstances is it worth risking one? Are the wars in the middle east worth the cost of the lives we pour into them?

This study takes a lighthearted look at the cost of human lives in direct opposition to art; using the 2014 movie The Monuments Men as a backdrop we examine whether art is worth life.
