I dunno. It seems like their only gauge of success is complete revolution, with no capitalism anywhere. I'm more interested and inspired by the "movements" that speak to me personally, how those movements influence other movements and grow into something new. You loose sight of the people involved and their interesting contributions to what it means to be human, all the ways people can do that, if you only hold them (the dead worker/revolutionary) up to an impossibly high standard.

So what if an artist didn't change the entire world? In what ways did their art inspire other artists down-the-line?

Those questions are lost if your only lens to look at history is through either total victory or defeat.
