The point of making a work of art is to provide an occasion for 
debates and discussions, and the point of experiencing a work of art 
is to debate and discuss it critically.  The worst fate that an 
artist can suffer is to be forgotten, not to have his work critically 
examined from all angles.  Unfortunately, that's exactly the fate 
that befalls 99.99% of works of art that have and will be produced. 
Michael Moore, as well as Bertolt Brecht, is a very lucky man.
