PoMo Study notes 2
The slog continues. Often I wonder why I submit myself to this drudgery. But each time, I suit up, grab a lance and head into the public square to meet Don Quixote in search for another windmill.
A simple search "defense of post modernism" belched forth much. I have waded into one youtube video: https://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?fr=mcafee&p=defense+of+post+....
https://www.skepticink.com/atheistintermarried/2013/09/01/a-defense-of-p... offers a written defense.
resonated most closely with my reasoning process.
Simple summary, I am incapable of wrestling meaningful or constructive insights about myself, my community nor my society from the narratives offered my postmodernism.
What is disturbing for me is that the narratives and rhetoric introduced by the postmodernist movement are precisely the narratives and rhetoric used each and everyday in social media. They are narratives that resist counterpoints like Teflon. They are narratives completely immune to what many might consider 'reason'. They vilify non-accepters. They offer nothing beyond the havoc they wreck on all western institutions past and present. I submit we see the consequences of this movement daily in social media and political discourse.
With adequate microphones in the hands of those who would depreciate all social values, disrupt meaningful discourse and reduce reason to relativistic pablum, I see 'No Exit'
Hoping someone has noticed a firedoor out of this spiral to anarchy.
