Artists are the 3rd most useless element of society. Surely you agree?

I calculated that most useless is outright criminals. They contribute nothing but fear to society and they take other members time, reducing other members of society's usefulness. The next are the feckless (either deserving or not) because they can't/don't contribute. 3rd most useless are the artists, who can't contribute that much into mainstream culture, or produce anything for society's benefit or the advancement of society. (Excluding political artists, whom are slightly more useful). 4th most useless are capitalists. Who don't do an a actual job, simply manipulate a corporation or money in some way, either taking wealth from society to hoarde for themselves, or consuming unfairly the resources that could be better used for society's benefit. Please tell me what you think of this list and where to extend it from here. No joke answers, and make sure to explain why you think this. @ Danny, thanks for your answer, I never realised exactly how art contributed. I was thinking to much of painters, whose art you may put in a museum. Remember to also try and expand the list.

No way. If there were no artists, there would be no art. Where would the hobby itself go? There would be no hobby. Without art, we couldn't see what we can't see. Artists help us see that. They have meaning.

This seems to be your very narrow definition of art. If you include architecture, design of objects like book covers, packaging etc, you must admit the world would be a much poorer place without artists.
