Ideals

"We must be especially wary of the present insufferable tendency to drag out at every slightest opportunity the concept of ideology. For ideology is untruth- false consciousness, a lie. It manifests itself in the failure of artworks, in their own intrinsic falsehood, and can be uncovered by criticism... The greatness of works of art lies solely in their power to let those things be heard which ideology conceals. "

- Theodor Adorno
