people who use the "fiction vs. reality" argument for art are totally media illiterate to begin with but to go further than that there's no way that can have any serious opinion on things like propaganda or just culture in general tbh. opinion completely discarded.
it's either bad faith or just a complete sincere lack of understanding of your own bullshit which is just embarrassing.
it shows a complete lack of understanding of how reality affects the creation of art and how art is a foundation of culture. i guess there's some attempt at being "humble" by saying "my art has no influence" but when it gets attention that's just fundamentally untrue.
