Please join low_culture

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. OK, so I'm not a Marxist but I do love all things low culture, if you do too then please join, go on you know you want too.

Ah, but according to noted German philosopher and composer Thedor Adorno, "The total effect of the (low) culture industry is one of anti-enlightenment..the progressive technical domination of nature, becomes mass deception and is turned into a means for fettering consciousness"


Howjah like them apples????

Ah, but such an attitude is to be expected from Theodor Adorno, a member of the privileged academic eleite whose projects were funded by the epitome of bourgeois, the Rockafeller family. baah.


ps. I am of course merely joking around Conor, and taking elements of Adorno's life out of context... :)
