Communist Art: So Easy a Child Could Do It!

One of the goals of Communism is to break the conventional thinking regarding art. Art used to be something hard to do, that you studied your entire life to get half decent at doing. You looked at a masterpiece and said "[deleted]! That guy is so much better than me at art, I'm going to shoot myself in the face with a bottle of vodka!" People were called "Masters" of their crafts. Communists recognize individual excellence as a threat to the collective satisfaction with generally poor everything (which is the natural result of Communism). So, logically, we can't have the masses perceive art as something that requires skill.

Come on, VFD

No, seriously. This is a genuine GOAL of Communism. First convenient hit on Google produces this list of Communist goals from 1963: Reproduced in pertinent part . . .

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."


Anyone in the art industry for a few decades will tell you that point 23 has been a resounding success. So can this kid's parents, who are selling the scribble-scrabbling of a four year-old girl as "art" for tens of thousands of dollars a crack.

Hooray Capitalism and more power to 'em, but pity the poor government educated fool who is parted with their money over this "art" and thinks they got something of genuine artistic value.
