Hello there. I see a lot of anger and frustration in you. Many of us here on ATS are very aware of the topics that you addressed, and even topics more pertinent than those. Many of us are just as fed up as you are. But do not let your frustrations with the system blind you to all else.
Some of us are born leaders, politicians, intellects, doctors, researchers, teachers, musicians, and artists. It is self-limiting to expect everyone to become a politician because our government is corrupt, or to become a scientist because the environment is messed up.
The thing you need to understand is everyone is not a born politician or scientist.
The REAL issue is waking everyone up to realize their own personal mastery.
The problem is that we have a society of sleeping masters. Sleeping leaders, sleeping politicians, sleeping scientists, and sleeping artists that never manifest their full potential.
Don't be angry because Aelita Andre is not a politician or scientist. She is free and awake. She is a master of art. Watch the entire video clip of her. This child understands technique, originality, and expression through art.
The world is balanced and needs balanced. Everyone is not a sleeping politician. Wake everyone up and we will have masters in every domain.

Apologies to the sensitive people here, but I have to agree, this child is not a prodigy.
If she happened to pull off a painting like say for example, something akin to ... La Giaconda, or something along the caliber of the Sistine chapel, then yes, she would be a prodigy. But hey, if people want to spend their money on the little girl's art, well it's their choice, but I would never pay more than say 5 dollars for something kindergarteners can do at the closest school to me.
Beauty and art etc.. are in the eye of the beholder, those paintings are not art to this eye.

i find it utterly disgusting that society has come to literally praise such "prodigies" as this one.
i find it completely unrealistic to even call this child a "prodigy".
i am becoming very tired of parents taking advantage of their children for the purpose of marketing and making money.
our society has come to focus upon things like movie stars, american idol, hollywood, main stream "musicians" like the atrocious noise that blares on every radio station today. lady gaga, katy perry, JUSTIN BIEBER,
this child is no different.
sure, she is having fun, and that is perfectly great, that's what every child should do at that age.
but, her parents trying to make money and fame off of it?
she is waving around bottles of paint making a mess!
again, to the touchy people out there, i want to stress, i am not insulting what the girl is doing in any way, she is enjoying herself so much.
i am insulting the parents who are taking advantage of the situation for the financial benefits.
i am also insulting those who are primitively simplistic enough to agree with their idea of her being a "prodigy".
why are we not raising our children to be interested in renewable energy?
is this not a dilemma that their generations will undoubtedly be faced with?
are a majority of the adults today living in an ignorant bliss?
the answer is yes.
they cannot face the reality of the global situation that they, and the generations before them allowed to manifest.
I am sick and @#$! tired of the majority of generations before me, because they have not stood up and thought for themselves, but instead helped perpetrate the manipulative corruption that I, and other humans my age and under will HAVE TO FACE when the past generations are gone.
this story is just an example; the very tip top of the iceberg topic regarding the brainwashed population.
wake up people, this is a kid throwing and clapping paint all over the floor.
go fund research for radiant energy, hydrolysis, wind and solar power, or renewable energy in general.
our society has NO excess to fund this...

I agree with the other posters who claim that this is just stage-managed by her parents. They are out to make some cash and I am sure they will.
I don't really think this is about art vs art or what is art.
It is really about two artists finding a way to make money. In this case, it is through their daughter.
