Nur der liebt, wer die Kraft hat, an der Liebe festzuhalten.

“The triumph of advertising in the culture industry is that consumers feel compelled to buy and use products even though they see through them.”

Une pensée qui, depuis l’astucieux Ulysse jusqu’aux naïfs PDG, est entraînée à se limiter aux problèmes d’organisation et d’administration, s’accompagne nécessairement d’un rétrécissement de l’intellect que l’on peut constater chez les grands de ce monde dès qu’il ne s’agit plus pour eux de manipuler les humbles.

Adorno v.s. Gehlen
Reposted fromclassless classless
At the moment when human beings cut themselves off from the consciousness of themselves as nature, all the purposes for which they keep themselves alive – social progress, the heightening of material and intellectual forces, indeed, consciousness itself – become void, and the enthronement of the means as the end, which in late capitalism is taking on the character of overt madness, is already detectable in the earliest history of subjectivity. The human being’s mastery of itself, on which the self is founded, practically always involves the annihilation of the subject in whose service that mastery is maintained, because the substance which is mastered, suppressed, and disintegrated by self-preservation is nothing other than the living entity, of which the achievements of self-preservation can only be defined as functions – in other words, self-preservation destroys the very thing which is to be preserved.

[...] Soziologie [...] muß die Einsicht in die Gesellschaft sein, in das Wesentliche der Gesellschaft, Einsicht in das, was ist, aber in einem solchen Sinn, daß diese Einsicht kritisch ist, indem sie das, was gesellschaftlich "der Fall ist", wie Wittgenstein gesagt haben würde, an dem mißt, was es selbst zu sein beansprucht, um in diesem Widerspruch zugleich die Potentiale, die Möglichkeiten einer Veränderung der gesellschaftlichen Gesamtverfassung aufzuspüren.
— Theodor W. Adorno; Einleitung in die Soziologie II. Vorlesung (Seite 31 Mitte im Suhrkamp Taschenbuch)

The lie has long since lost its honest function of misrepresenting reality. Nobody believes anybody, everyone is in the know. Lies are told only to convey to someone that one has no need either of him or his good opinion.
