Theodore Adorno

have not had enough to eat.

I suspect Mr Adorno was paraphrasing the quote 'Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable' which is still far too pat, but at least it identifies the that there are the disturbed (the chaotic) and the comfortable (the orderly), albeit in all too orderly a way.

Your quotation is much better. But who wrote it ?

Bearz said...

Mexican poet and short story writer Cesar A. Cruz.

And a vituperative rant it is, indeed. A pity, because a measured critique of Adorno would be worth reading.
