“The sociological theory that the loss of the support of objectivity established religion, the dissolution of the last remnants of pre-capitalism, together with technological and social differentiation or specialisation, have led to a cultural chaos is disproved every day; for culture now impresses the same stamp on everything.”
This line best represents the text because it discusses the fact that people are becoming subservient to Capitalism’s power. It discusses the fact that we are no longer is a position to live without having to be a part of the Capitalist system. It discusses the mechanical reproduction aspect of the living in a world that is run by Capitalism. Most of the power that Capitalism has is due to technology, the author discusses. It dominates the way that the world functions. The cultural industry has facilitated the emergence of production and now people are at the mercy of machines. While this text was written some time ago, it has already seen that there was a shift in the way that people are living, and this is largely because of the control of technology.
In the transition from periods, beginning with romanticism and moving to expressionism, there was the gradual movement to a protest against the organization. The awareness of this form was ignored through a harmonic effect. When someone painted, a color was used often and this was at the price of the entire image. Novels gradually began to change as well, going from a work where structure was considered the most important, to something where the psychology of the work was deemed to be most important. The idea is that the culture industry ruins the fun of life, rather that providing amusement for people. This is a result of lost objectivity and the dissolution of the final remnants of pre-capitalism.
