The Frankfort School: Cultural Revolution

For some time now it has been apparent to me that our culture has taken a shift, and not necessarily in the right direction.  In fact I can say without pause that our society has taken a turn for the worse; our mores and values have become inverted, seemingly to the point of no return.
