Re your comment below:

"Jim did a wonderful job of it when he turned my declaration that 'Art has no moral obligation' into
'Artists have no moral obligation.' Art. Artist. What's the difference?"

Art doesn't spring into existence on its own. It has to be created. And since the discussion, to that point, was whether a particular ARTIST had failed to meet moral obligations, it seemed reasonable, to me, that, if you were giving art a free pass morally, then artists must be getting the same free pass.

That's not equivocation, that's interpretation.
