Adorno on Beards.

Came across this gem re-writing my Adorno chapter. Spot on description of all the beardy folky indie dudes I reckon:

Existentialism, which the German establishment suspects of being subversive, has a likeness to the beards of its followers. They costume themselves as oppositional, the youth as cave-people, who no longer play along with the swindle of culture, while they are really only donning the out- of-fashion emblems of patriarchal dignity of their grandfathers.
