    Yes, right; that’s not a completely meaningless statement, not at all. :P

    Just about the ONLY word you could substitute for “criticism” there that wouldn’t be exactly as meaningful and/or revelatory is “democracy”. Yet even then… it still seems kinda profound. Not that it is, of course. Just seems.

    Far more wonderful (and relevent) is the subtitle of that very article:

    “You might think it’s arrogance or snobbery that leads me to criticise a work of art, and maybe it is – but I’m still right”.

    Now that’s a quote. :)
