    —Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)

    If mass communications blend together harmoniously, and often unnoticeably, art, politics, religion, and philosophy with commercials, they bring these realms of culture to their common denominator—the commodity form.

    —Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)

    —Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)
