Creativity is part of the human experience. Expressing your feelings or your thoughts, even tied to a collection of pre-made internet memes, is essential for many people. Aesthetically, the form may be overused and seem to saturate certain corners of the internet, overtaking more interesting and varied forms of expression, but it’s still important to the people who are using them to communicate.
That doesn’t mean it’s not shitty to take someone else’s work and sell it for a profit. If it’s any consolation, nobody seems to be buying this book, which you might expect, given that a quarter of the images on the internet on any given day are “rage face comics.”
