Question: what is the communist relationship with music and how should it be formed?
"Every artist, everyone who considers himself an artist, has the right to create freely according to his ideal, independently of everything. However, we are Communists and we must not stand with folded hands and let chaos develop as it pleases. We must systemically guide this process and form its result." - Lenin
@Deleted User why do you ask questions on which you know the answers?
I was listening to classical and thinking: is this bourgeois?
Every matter is to be transformed but some will stay in history some will not.
Classics did stay
for a reason
Of its time
@Deleted User you know the reaction of most people on Soviet art, right?
Actually, it is really good.
Quality is important at all times.
Unless it is quantity.
or a measure.
I would like to know why it is quality. Because it expresses realism over impressionism?
Any quality can be taken outside of its time. The best might stay.
For a time
You mean that the best qualities are enduring? They survive the dialectal process? They survive like in evolution?
@Deleted User of course. The best qualities are not even qualities. They are the essence.
Essence? (I am newish to diamat)
all the time
at the same time
OK, so how come we have such shitty art and music nowadays (in general)? Is it because the subjective is a reflection of the objective, and those in the capitalist system are infected with a 'class virus', and thus reflected poorly on the art they produce?
@Deleted User the profit motive of the creation of the quality is a pure perversion of all things.
Wow, that makes a lot of sense.
Is a pure destruction of quality.
