The Aristocracy of Art

Aristocracy of Art typecast - Rino Breebaart

This is a reactive piece. It's been bubbling for a bit, and needs further explication. And I should clarify that Lanier was the inspiration for it - his humanist critique of crowdsourcing is in line with this. And I do not deliberately cast myself as a "genius" by association here: I function more as a critic/theorist. But then every critical generation should throw up a genius like Ruskin too... See? Pure snobbery at work. It is and it isn't.

Just to clarify - this is a draft and I'd replace a few sloppy phrases and usages, like "media" in the first sentence, which should read "artistic works".
