    Michael Jackson also had unprecedented success. And look at all those young boys he made happy!

    You throw a lot of words, such as "hatred" "happiness" "disrespect" and "jealousy" around in a manner that indicates that you don't really understand their meanings.

    Maybe enough has been said on this topic? I'm tempted to close it, so let's keep it civil.

    I don't think hos business planned sucked, as was said here. The exact same model has been used by others, but for very different products. I think the reason most people do not like his business is because he is selling bad paintings, but having a popular product and marketing the hell out of it is fine, as far as I am concerned. I still think he was a terrible artist. Would we be as critical of him if his product was an electronic device or piece of software instead of paintings?

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    What wrong with opiate for the masses? Here's another opiate that doesn't claim to be art but way cheaper.

    There's something that an antidote for the fake inspirational decorations.

    The cost of art and who buys expensive art is indicative of who has the disposable income. A great movie showing excessive money and art is the movie Basquiat. When the economy booms, the oily art purveys come out of the wood work.

    It went silly way upstream. I'd close it.

    It will die on it's own.....they all do.
    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    I started the thread and I think it's time to put it to rest. People have spoke their peace.

    I won't disagree, but I'd like to hear other opinions on post 174. I see this stuff all day long and have long wondered who I should despise and/or envy and/or be jealous.

    Those motivational posters make no claim to be anything other than what they are - disposable decor. And they're generally priced accordingly. And I have zero feelings toward the person(s) who invented them and made millions of dollars selling them. They're NOT art- they're pretty propaganda. If you want to envy someone, the successories people are far more enviable because what they did is at least honest. Nobody buys a "TEAMWORK" poster thinking that their grandkids will be able to retire on the sale of it.
