A horrible quote comes back to me, from, I think, Hilary Spurling on Start the Week in March this year. She said: "There are more creative writers [in Britain] than the culture can support." She was mostly speaking about the Royal Literary Fund's Writing Matters report, though.

yes, having too many clever, educated, literate and creative people in a society is a disaster. Dammit we'll just have to stop educating all but a small amount of people to sort this out...
