Modern Art is a Cultural Plague

In this video I just posted to my GovanKilgour YouTube channel I go over a brief history of the fall of classical artistic standards, then go on to describe why it’s in the best interest of our cultural future to return to real art that elevates beauty, technical skill, and inspires the viewer to better themselves in some way. I make reference to a short but impactful video by PragerU (1) that examines the farce of modern art, as well as a documentary about the National Socialist reaction to the European expressionist movement called “Degenerate Art (2)”.

Seeing as I’ve studied visual art, produced art, and sold my own work, I wouldn’t consider myself someone who simply “doesn’t get art”. Cultural marxist modern art elites only exist because of government policy that subsidizes their academic careers and in many cases their artwork itself. They will only be defeated through widespread public rejection of their ugly garbage. I don’t think banning any form of art would ever be necessary, but we should demand that the near literal welfare handouts these rent-seekers get from the government comes to a stop. Then the free market will run its course and modern art will be physically removed from society.

    I want to express my thknas to you just for bailing me out of this type of challenge. After exploring through the internet and coming across solutions which were not powerful, I was thinking my entire life was done. Living minus the strategies to the issues you have resolved as a result of your short post is a serious case, and those which could have adversely damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your blog. Your personal mastery and kindness in controlling a lot of things was very helpful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a point like this. It’s possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for this skilled and results-oriented guide. I will not think twice to endorse your blog to any individual who requires guide about this situation.

    art is subjective, and it just seems that you don’t enjoy abstract art. Sometimes people just like how it looks, and there’s no real meaning behind it. That’s not to say classical standards have even died. It doesn’t even take long to find good art, it’s just that that kind of art isn’t made by people who are self-centered enough to actually want their art in a museum. What I suppose you would call “real art” can be found on websites like deviantart and tumblr, museums for the digital age. a

      As is outlined in the video this has nothing to do with personal preference, let alone my own preference, but rather the larger effect it has on society. What are is being held up as a standard? Who’s behind pushing these forms of art?

      Just like architecture, entertainment, food, music, and more, these things have an effect on human consciousness. Is it uplifting and harmonizing humanity, or pushing us into more discordance with nature and other people.
