Erik Satie says

In order to combat 'advanced' ideas in Politics or in Art, all means are justified - especially underhand means. 'New'artists - those who 'change something' - have always suffered attacks from their enemies who wage war on the newness of trends - and visions- which they cannot undertand... [I]t is always the same people who resist Progress in all its shapes and forms: the upholders of the 'status quo', the good folk who 'know what they like'.

Erik Satie, 1919

There are closed minds out there who retrospectively invent reasons for disliking something, merely to mask an unjustifiable prejudice. They LOUDER they remark, the more they know they are defeated. Leave them to shout themselves hoarse.
