Adorno – The Culture Industry

The Culture Industry “The accepted reason for playing sport is that it makes believe that fitness itself is the sole independent end of sport: whereas fitness for work is certainly one of the covert ends of sport. Frequently it is in sport that people frequently inflict upon themselves (and celebrate as a triumph of their own freedom) precisely what society inflicts upon them and what they must learn to enjoy.” (195)
