I believe that the canonical authority on the influence of Hegel on contemporary culture would be Charles Taylor’s Sources of the Self: The Making of the Modern Identity. It’s typically described as “monumental,” which is academic code for “infinitely long and incredibly badly written.” It’s hugely influential, however, even if (like Hegel) practically no one has actually read it.
The history of the world is nothing but the development of the idea of freedom.
Hegel, installed from above, by the powers that be, as the certified Great Philosopher, was a flat-headed, insipid, nauseating, illiterate charlatan who reached the pinnacle of audacity in scribbling together and dishing up the craziest mystifying nonsense. This nonsense has been noisily proclaimed as immortal wisdom by mercenary followers and readily accepted as such by all fools, who thus joined into as perfect a chorus of admiration as had ever been heard before. The extensive field of spiritual influence with which Hegel was furnished by those in power has enabled him to achieve the intellectual corruption of an whole generation.
