Source text - Swedish
Den tysk-judiske filosofen och sociologen Herbert Marcuse har utvecklat en teori om hur den moderna människan har en förmåga att bara tänka i en dimension – det som är – och har ingen förmåga att tänka i en andra dimension – det som kunde vara (Paulsen 2010:50). I sin bok Den endimensionella människan (1968 [1964]) gör Marcuse en kritisk analys av hur det avancerade industrisamhället skapat falska behov och lurat in människan i en ond cirkel av produktion och konsumtion.

Marcuse menar alltså att konsumismen fungerar som en social kontroll. Detta stämmer överens med Paulsens förklaring av konsumtionen som en lösning på ”arbetsproblemet”. Genom att tillfredsställa individerna på detta sätt upphör alltså deras förmåga till motstånd och till att föreställa sig ett annat samhälle.

Detta endimensionella samhälle blir speciellt tydligt inom politiken, där debatten allt mer inskränker sig till att handla om kvantitativa skillnader snarare än kvalitativa.
Translation - English
The German-Jewish philosopher and sociologist Herbert Marcuse developed a theory of how modern man has the ability to think in only one dimension – that which is - and is unable to think in a second dimension – that which could be (Paulsen, 2010: 50). In his book One-Dimensional Man (1968 [1964]) Marcuse offered a critical analysis of how advanced industrial society created false needs and tricked man into a vicious cycle of production and consumption.

Marcuse’s argument was that consumerism worked as a social control. This is consistent with Paulsen's explanation of consumption as a solution to the "labour problem." By satisfying individuals in this way they lose their ability to resist and imagine a different society.

This one-dimensional society is particularly evident in politics, where debate is increasingly confined to quantitative rather than qualitative differences.
