  • Post Modernism's pernicious effects is not a conspiracy theory

    Post Modernism's pernicious effects are everywhere and the left's lie that believing that is a conspiracy theory is proof.

    I accept much of the skeptical underpinnings of post modernism. Absolute truths are either mundane, ontological, or exist in closed systems such as mathematics. Everything is relative in the sense that any attempt to isolate the thing itself outside of the environment it exists in will necessarily be an approximation. All of life is a power struggle for both genes and memes, a variation on nature bloody, tooth, and claw. It is impossible to objectively demonstrate that civilization is a thing other than culture. There are an infinite number of interpretation of reality. So on and so forth.

    All of which makes for interesting contemplation but the American school of philosophy has an answer and it's called pragmatism. Most philosophers don't like pragmatism because like science it is reductionist. It does however establish a firm foundation on which to build. Science and technology are a product of the enlightenment as is the scepticism that post modernism rest. The kind of skepticism that science brings to life is possible to measure empirically and the kind that post modernism brings to life is not. From a pragmatist's point of view post modernism has no utility, measured empirical it has a score of 0 or where it coexist with Marxism it has a negative score of 200 million. Science on the other hand has dramatically increased our effectiveness at providing a positive energy outcome, in other words an anti entropic life sustaining economy. This in turn provides a foundation for philosophical questions to be answered if one assumes that more life is better than less.

      Understanding the roots of the post truth political landscape isn't taken seriously enough by classical liberals and conservatives. Resisting post modernism highlights and directs the unfinished business of the enlightenment.

      To illustrate just how seriously the down stream effects of philosophy can be one only has to look at how ideology has twisted human resources in many institutions into knots. They are now working against their original function of protecting meritocracy not just with affirmative action but by rejecting traditional measures of competency and replacing them with subjective measures such as the value of diversity and inclusion. The end goal, although many of the people promoting these ideas are oblivious to this, is the destruction of capitalism and liberal democracy.

      The whole package of bad ideas are typically not represented in individuals but emerge in the mob as most individuals are only partially infected.
