Or as your pal Andrei Zhdanov would put it, the task of the artist is to 
be an "engineer of souls."

Slap that fish, comrade.

Art in the public sphere can most certainly have that kind of 
transcendent influence, and the idea that the dialect wasn't supposed to 
apply to such things strikes me as a terribly innovative bit of 
fish-slapping.
