HERBERT Marcuse and Repressive Toleration

 

“Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.”

 

“By virtue of the way it has organized its technological base, contemporary industrial society tends to be totalitarian. For “totalitarian” is not only a terroristic political coordination of society, but also a non-terroristic economic-technical coordination which operates through the manipulation of needs by vested interests.”

 

“His argument is that the system’s much lauded economic, political, and social freedoms, formerly a source of social progress, lose their progressive function and become subtle instruments of domination which serve to keep individuals in bondage to the system that they strengthen and perpetuate. For example, economic freedom to sell one’s labor power in order to compete on the labor market submits the individual to the slavery of an irrational economic system; political freedom to vote for generally indistinguishable representatives of the same system is but a delusive ratification of a nondemocratic political system; intellectual freedom of expression is ineffectual when the media either co-opt and defuse, or distort and suppress, oppositional ideas, and when the image-makers shape public opinion so that it is hostile or immune to oppositional thought and action. Marcuse”

 

The web of domination has become the web of Reason itself, and this society is fatally entangled in it.

 

Under the rule of a repressive whole, liberty can be made into a powerful instrument of domination.

 

 

Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right, and toleration of movements from the Left.

 

Voltaire:

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

― S.G. Tallentyre, The Friends of Voltaire

 

Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers,

 

Men are equal; it is not birth but virtue that makes the difference.

 

Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.

 

Common sense is not so common.

 

Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.

 

It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster.

 

Opinion has caused more trouble on this little earth than plagues or earthquakes.
