  1. The semantic abuse does not result from accidental mislabelling, but from deliberate mislabelling designed to misrepresent the activity of those being labelled.

    For example, mislabelling a singer’s audience as consumers instead of ticket purchasers, concert goers, or afficionados of folk music, could be an accident, but when used by the singer’s producer it is deliberately designed to consolidate the idea that the audience is consuming the producer’s product, and hence prevent any notion that a cultural work is being publicly performed and consequently being delivered to the public, along with any permanent record they may choose to keep.

    Art is not consumed by appreciation.

    Calling an artist’s audience consumers, does not make it so – although sadly, it fools many.
