Theodor W. Adorno Quote
Impulse, subjectivity and profanation, the old adversaries of materialistic alienation, now succumb to it.... The representatives of the opposition to the authoritarian schema become witnesses to the authority of commercial success.... In the service of success they renounce that insubordinate character which was theirs.
p. 273 - On the Fetish Character in Music and the Regression of Listening (1938)
