The artist as aesthete is fundamentally open to the full range of experiences of humanity. All religious traditions are basically anti-pleasure, which is why religious law is so obsessed with sexuality. You can't be fully human if you are unrelentingly hostile to pleasure. The aesthete is defined by openness to the sensual world just as the believer is defined by a closedness to it. Lacking the proper appreciation for humanity, believers can be motivated to commit unspeakable acts. (A mob of believers is common enough in contemporary society; we see such mobs in the news regularly. A mob of aesthetes is impossible.) This closedness to pleasure is a necessary condition for the kind of suffering that makes a young person susceptible to irrational persuasion. Those who, at their core, resent beauty and pleasure will be only too willing to engage in hatred and violence.
