Postmodernism – The Great Lie

Everyone needs to study postmodernism so that they recognize it when they see it, and can call it out for what it is.

Postmodernism started with the notion that all words can have multiple meanings. Based on this, as you put words together, the number of possible meanings becomes infinite. As such, there is an infinite number of interpretations of any paragraph or book.

From this premise, which is at least partially true, postmodernism goes a bridge too far and posits that all of these infinite numbers of interpretations are equally valid. And that is where it breaks down. No – they are not all equally valid. There are only a few valid ways to read a paragraph or a book. There are a great many subtle details in a long work that can be discussed and debated, but each word is chosen for a specific purpose, and words are put together to convey meaning. To throw all that to the wind and say that all meaning is purely subjective – well then why bother writing at all? Just throw the alphabet on the floor and call it a library. Done! That alphabet contains all that ever has been or will be written, and suddenly you do not even need to read anything because everything means whatever you want it to mean, and it is all on the floor in front of you.

The notion that all possible interpretations are equally valid is absurd.

And not to stop with literature, the postmodernist goes further. Facts must, for example, be realized through imperfect senses. Since our senses are imperfect, facts and truths are only possible through perception, which is inherently subjective.

Again – there is a kernel of truth to that, but postmodernism takes this a bridge too far and posits that all subjective interpretations of facts or truths are equal. From this, they go even further and say that, since all facts and truths are subjective, there is no such thing as an objective fact or an objective truth. We each have our own facts and our own truths, and they are all equally valid.

This, like the concept that there is no objective meaning in anything written, is absurd. Science, engineering – the fact that when I flip a switch, a light comes on – everything we do when we interact with the world around us proves that postmodernism is entirely wrong.

Postmodernism was however not designed to be true, and you can see this in the fact that virtually all postmodernists are also communists, in spite of the fact that if there is no objective truth, there is no reason to pick communism over any other social order and postmodernists should thus be all over the map.

Postmodernism was designed to work around the fact that no society has ever been predicated on equality of outcomes and survived. Societies based on liberty and individualism flourish, and societies based on identity politics and forced equality always fail. And that is a fact. Nobody can name any nation that ever emerged into richness that was collective. None. Ever. Every rich nation in the world got that way through free-market capitalism, with exactly zero exceptions.

Marxists did a sleight of hand in the sixties, by which time their economic arguments had been so thoroughly repudiated that even they knew they were wrong, but like good cultists, rather than accepting that Marxism fails, they gave up on getting the proletariat to overthrow the bourgeoise based on economic oppression, and went with identity groups and power struggles instead. And now our colleges are awash in this.

But none of it is true. Gay people make more on average than straight people. African Americans with college educations make more on average than white people with college educations. The supposed oppression and the supposed power struggles do not exist, except in the heads of people who are not interested in objectivity.

To the postmodernist, all of existence – all facts and evidence – must be rendered obsolete. Marxism only failed based on MY truths and MY facts, and since I am a member of an oppressive group, my facts, and my truths are not important.

It is a slick sleight of hand, and with it, voila – Marxism lives again, in spite of the hundreds of millions of people who died at its hands in the last century, and in spite of the fact that it always fails with zero exceptions.

If postmodernism ever gains political power, as it is trying very hard to do in Europe and the United States, the world is in very real trouble.

De Blasio Cancels Competence

De Blasio Cancels Competence

More and more application of the equity over competence principle means outcomes like these: No admission standards for music schools such as Julliard. No admission standards for medical schools like Beth Israel. No admission standards for engineering schools like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. No standards for pilot certification…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #7

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #7

How could the Delta variant be more contagious than the original Sars Covid, since variant comes from it? I would like to know what Dr. McCullough thinks about the possible connection between vaccine side effects and inadvertent intravenous injection of the vaccine? I work at a government lab, and we are being forced to take it or be fired by Nov 15th….. Help!! Please!

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

When it Comes to the Acts of Congress, those Emperors Have No Clothes

It’s much like the people in the story of The Emperor’s Clothes; the American people are either afraid of, or ignorant of, the facts, and are therefore unwilling to point out the obvious. I haven’t even found any evidence that this Permanent Apportionment Act of 1929 was even challenged in court, much less among the states. This lie has been going around for so long most Americans have been gaslighted into believing it’s true…

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste

As a crisis develops, Democrats will use the propaganda resources of the mass media to promote their victimization and blame “White Privilege” as the reason for the supposed inefficiencies and injustices that keep them always subservient to their welfare status. CRT is another attack on a functioning America. Democrats offer false hope to the underclass…

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

Repeated US Intelligence Failures Spell Disaster

At the moment, a ‘woke’ American military is not even capable of protecting the US borders let alone confronting a determined enemy. The USA is a naked target at the moment, and it will be innocent civilians who will pay the ultimate price for the gross betrayal by all its leaders to protect them from evil, starting with Joe Biden, the Traitor in Chief…

Let’s Identify and Quash the Apostles of Slavery and Injustice for All

Let’s Identify and Quash the Apostles of Slavery and Injustice for All

They supplant the virtuous Pledge of Allegiance that demands “liberty and justice for all.” Shall we helplessly sit back and allow these missionaries of evil to have their way? Some say yes. Others aren’t so sure. But a growing number of people are deciding they’ve had enough. For many months now, the plain truth has been evident: America is under attack!

A Woke Military Threatens US Readiness

A Woke Military Threatens US Readiness

Under woke military leadership, the US has fallen so far behind China and Russia that our best experts have no idea how the Chinese could accomplish this nuclear missile flight and strike. Milley and Austin and the Marxist Democrats (both the puppets such as Biden and the puppet masters such as Soros organizations) already have blood on their hands from Afghanistan.  

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

True Parent Patriots Act Against Racist, Anti-America Agenda

Parents have responsibly refused to stand idly by as arrogant academic ideologues teach their kids to judge one another by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character; malign their country as systemically and irredeemably evil rather than celebrate America’s virtues; and witness their tax money wasted on failed schools, failed curricula, and failed outcomes…

Breaking the Grip of Medical Tyranny

Breaking the Grip of Medical Tyranny

Patients and family members should demand “shared decision making” and enforce a patient bill of rights that ensures all parties agree on the treatment course. America has been rocked by the court cases that families have brought to bare getting court orders to force doctors and hospitals to administer proper care…
