If you can believe in the possibility of 'relative autonomy', utopic dreams (a possibility, by no means a given), then things may not be wholly bleak. No music is wholly autonomous of its social context and function, but that doesn't mean it has to passively accept that role and not attempt to look 'beyond'.

As Adorno pointed out :)

On the other hand, what you say might mean that one should put musical artistic questions to one side, and work for revolution...
