I think it's more about a really interesting thought, about the profit-driven aspect of most left-wing so-called "art" that's reduced it to a mere consume experience with political touches.i dont remember seeing 'right wing means you can make art, left wing means you can't' anywhere on the wikipedia page for political spectrum, though
I think the so-called "art" opt guy is talking about is stuff like the following:
This is nothing more than the act of the expression of the existentialist consciousness based upon a spiritual understanding of reality that makes the soul rise. Such an "art" concept would agree with the "right-winger qualities" opt guy is sperging out about. Take Wagner by example of Right Winger art.
In comparison left-wing art is more of a fancy consuming exercise of media with political touches in opposition to the existentialist soul-rising art opt guy spergs about; left-winger art would be no different from paying for bourgeois hedonism plus politics. Let's take as an example the following: "One Hundred Years Of Solitude" (heavily biased and unfair against conservatism in Colombia, will be taken as left-winger propaganda) and music like Vaporwave when being considered as "late stage capitalism critique" (will be leftist too).
Let's start with the Vaporwave one as it's the most fun: it's just consuming a perceived-as-intellectual cultural and political critique musical experience. It isn't a soul-rising as the art opt guy spergs out about, because it's more about nihilism and the perceived defeat of the unfair capitalism system by scientific marxism and also mocking the capitalist profit-seeking culture. Vaporwave doesn't demand any effort from the viewer, it's nicely packaged and ready for consume entertainment. The greatest irony comes when Vaporwave becomes a product that complies with the capitalist profit intention. The artist who mocks the capitalism for its soul-less profit seeking now is the one seeking the profit, selling his art that critiques selling. The reason why people exalt this so called art is because they like consuming the experience listening to vaporwave provide and its political ideas that they agree with.
One hundred years of solitude is similar, it isn't art based upon the soul-rising existentialist aspect but rather upon the consuming of the pretty well-developed experience the reading of the book provides, no different from liking a mundane scary movie because of the great scary experience watching it provides. It isn't soul-rising, as such that book made by that guy who wanted to be a mexican gets pretty depressing sometimes. The credentialism it possesses just makes it an even better fancy consumable product for the bourgeois that wants to be perceived as intellectual by his peers and will gladly consume whatever the "experts" will tell him is the best. It's true this book is great, of course it's great, but it isn't true art, it won't lift your soul, it's just a cleverly designed drama that provides a great experience and will make you think conservatism in Colombia was evil but nothing else.
