It's like most of his videos - regurgitated content from a hand-full of articles, filtered and interpreted to tell a story and then presented as fact. There is truth to much of it if you look up the sources, but some of the assertions he makes are very contentious.

I'm sure fine art is a racket to some extent, but I don't think democratizing it would actually help anybody; it wouldn't increase the value of art from unknown artists, it would just devalue everything. At the end of the day, it's almost not worth having an opinion on it unless you're in that world.
