A defence of postmodernism

Haven't finished the video, but replying so I can mark it for later.

It seems to me that postmodernism and communism are building up power levels for a big play.

I can see it all starting with the election of Linda Sarsour as president in 2020..

I mean this time it's really a good idea to ask whether she was born in the US.

It's unfortunate how much time he spent to put together this video when the foundation for postmodernism (essentially Kant; partially Nietzsche and Descartes) has been so thoroughly refuted and deconstructed (by it's own hand) as to make it a laughable position.

Beyond that, roots of misleading philosophy and other social ills are, of course, more psychological than a problem of the wrong philosophical outlook. Even as such, postmodernism has yet to offer any practical advice for dealing with a postmodern world beyond "don't strive too much" and "try to have fun, whatever that is to you."

Postmodernism is a base for communism and other powerful groups simply because it pacifies the population. What is one willing to die for in a world of subjective value, meaning, and morality? This is why Nationalism is popular, it's a small circle to put your meaning in, but it's better than "starring into the infinite."

He could've spent his time better by trying to find a solution to the problem of postmodernism, rather than trying to defend the philosophical consequences of an irrational base. Or getting himself a therapist.
