Artists are not just a ‘style.’ They’re not a product. They’re a breathing, experiencing person

That made me laugh. Artists have been getting increasingly greedy in the recent years, sucking up to capitalist system and spitting on the people. Patreon this, fanbox that. I encountered more and more teasers to paywalled content on pixiv. I say they get what they deserve. When stuff copyfags make, similar or better, can be mass produced for nothing, it's just like torrenting. Hoarders lose, people win.

Now, on the Luddic path I personally stand with Ted. AI art may be just an euthanizing distraction from horrors to come. The article also leaves impression that ultimately nothing depends on the people: now its corporate copyfag legislators against corporate technocratic mad scientists. I imagine a battle of one evil against another evil, that happens far away and produces pretty sparkling fireworks.

Modern Luddites.

Fortunately they do not matter.

You know, there are still blind people about who think technology is a good thing for humanity.
