Walter Benjamin and the Ideas of the Ruling Class

January 22, 2017 at 10:36 pm (Uncategorized)

“The ideologies of the rulers are by their nature more changeable than the ideas of the oppressed. …For not only must they, like the ideas of the latter, adapt each time to the situation of social conflict, but they must glorify that situation as fundamentally harmonious.”

Walter Benjamin, The Arcades Project
