Ideas improve. Plagiarism implies it. The use of overt plagiarism by the Neoists does not, however, participate in this improvement. The selective process of choosing what material to plagerize is as much a creative act as the construction of the images, ideas and texts in the first place. If the aim of plagiarism is to make a radical break with creativity, plagiarists must give up the selection process and confine themselves to non-participation.
