"However, with a single great exception, that of Walter Benjamin (and in his footsteps, Brecht), Marxists have not understood the consciousness industry and have been aware only of its bourgeois capitalist dark side and not of its socialist possibilities. An author such as Georg Lukacs is a perfect example of this theoretical and practical backwardness."--"Constituents of a Theory of Media" (1970) by Hans Magnus Enzensberger
