NFTs : the last straw?

Art alone can save the world!

This very art is now being engulfed by capitalism. The works of Beeple express his political thoughts, the essence of this is captured by the capitalist machine and was used as a catalyst, manure for fertile ground. This is not a new thing. It had happened to Hip-hop (patriot act volume 2 ep 2). But the speed and scale of it is happening now and going to happen is very alarming. Anything and everything could be sold as an NFT. From tweets to physical objects. And with the metaverse on the verge, the multiplicity of this is going to increase. Digital space thus becomes an absolute tool(which it already is) of the elite to control the masses where freedom of expression is a myth.
