Politics and the Arts

In his Manifesto of Futurism the writer urges young artists to reject the past and instead embrace and celebrate the modern innovations. In other words he calls for the elements of speed and motion in automobiles as symbols for advent of modernity. According to the writer automobile engines present beautiful opportunities that need to be embraced.
In your 350-400 word response, please consider the context of 1909 Italy, and how the young artists of the day were revolting against centuries of cultural and artistic traditions. How does the manifesto writer view 1) the need for change, to the extent of embracing violence and war, 2) the opportunities that “speed” and “motion” could be embraced, and 3) what happens in ten years when these contemporary artists themselves become the old guard, and will be replaced by younger artists than themselves?
