the depoliticization of social reality


I thought this statement of Manfred Steger’s interesting:

“The values disseminated by transnational media enterprises secure not only the undisputed cultural hegemony of popular culture, but also lead to the depoliticization of social reality and the weakening of civic bonds.” (p.81)

(obviously, I haven’t provided the context in which he made it, but it is an interesting statement, that’s all!)
