I meant not only in the discussion but in the eventual revolution. It's
just that it sounded a little too much like John Lennon, so I shied back
and didn't finish the sentence. Sorry.

Again, I was trying to suggest more than actually constructing a
sentence. (A bad habit, I must admit, but it seems it kinda worked this
time). The thing is that I try not to allow commerce to influence on art
(where I can, in my own work). Not a typo, anyway.

On the other hand we are all using our experience of commerce fucking
over art as a starting point to create something else. That is one
important part of many appropiative works, isn't it?
