Saying every element in a given set shares a property is different than saying ONLY element in that set have that property. For example, the statement "Every bird lays eggs," is not equivalent to the statement, "Only birds lay eggs."

The critiques bite ankles, too.
In all fairness...

"A critique? What are you giving him a critique for? It might bite him."

Dublin’s Sweep of Public Mural Removals Prompts Wave of New Artworks

"The sweep of mural removals began in late 2017, despite previous successful collaborations between DCC and Subset, as cited in the Irish Times. Although the murals are created on private property and with explicit permission from property owners, under current law the artists are still required to apply for permits for each painting. These permitting fees are calculated by square meter, and can cost thousands of euros.

[...]In response, members of the Subset collective have teamed up with other artists to paint new murals throughout Dublin, with a goal of adding twenty five new works. Some are vibrantly colored, drawing attention to the role that such large-scale public artworks play in enlivening urban environments. Others feature grey palettes in solidarity with the #greyareaproject hashtag, which is being used to unite the pro-mural movement.
