There's a gazillion Picassos out there and to threaten to blow yourself up for this lot is stupid. But I believe art terrorism will be on the increase, where in the next 50 years there will be a movement to destroy art. And I don't mean that the destruction itself will be an art movement, although I can see people thinking that way. I mean that there will be world wide terrorism to destroy every last vestige of art within the world. It would be like the Luddites but motivated by a hatred for art that is unworldly. I say this now and I could be wrong of coarse, but art is both one of the weakest and strongest part of our civilization and, like the artist, it is both too good and not good enough for this world. So, in the future, all this confusion will have to go... (sorry if I sound like an idiot).

An interesting idea. Of course, I hope it doesn't happen. But I love FR for its exchange of all kinds of ideas; definitely something to think about.
