I wanted to add, and it's sort of neither here nor there - good "content" survives.
In An Object of Beauty, by Steve Martin (yes, the actor and comedian), he surmises that the evolution of art, like the evolution of stray dogs (my personal comparison), depends much on its appeal. Art that is pleasing to the eye, somehow resonant, like a puppy cuter than the rest of its doomed orphaned litter, has a greater chance of survival. Art that touches one's soul means someone will try to preserve it by any means---through purchase, smuggling, imitation, etc. Similarly, a cute stray pup will likely get more sympathy in the form of food and shelter than one that is not.
This is to say good content is worth making because it is not only for the (moral, aesthetic) sake of making good content, but serves also strategic survival (in the case of our industry, wide distribution and overall KPI).
I was reminded of this because of the many disparate WeChat communities (chat groups) I belong to, one is for "sticker lovers" and let me tell you, we get some RANDOM ones. Origin never in question; what matters is they made it to the group, for a reason. Specifically, I just came across a 6second video of two cats wrestling. Let me tell you, it was definitely entertaining. Where did it originate? Somehow the laughter in the background and home decor does not lead me to guess 4chan or reddit---two major breeding grounds of all things Internet. In conclusion, good things survive. It is the Darwinian way. And the winning way. So let's make good content?
