Post-Modernism, the anti-Patriarchy

28 Dec

Great article found by chance over at therightstuff. Post-modernism is an outgrowth of Cultural Marxism of the Frankfurt School variety. Let the author tell you a little:

It seems strange that a philosophy that is seemingly so absurd could have so much unseen power in today’s culture and could have contributed to the takedown of so many social institutions. The family, masculinity, femininity, capitalism, nationalism, patriarchy and even orthodox Marxist socialism have all been under assault from this school. This illustrates the social power of critical theory and deconstructionism. The theories are prima facie ridiculous, but they slowly and surely chip away at the foundation of a culture as they are intended to do. This is the intentional strategy of critical theory.

But that’s for the article, called “The Hilarity of Postmodernism.” I bring you good cheer, once and future Patriarchs. Behold, the Butter Dance!

    This illustrates the social power of critical theory and deconstructionism

    the mediocre and inferior always deconstruct, because they cant construct

    if you cant create or innovate, next best is tearing down somebody else’s, then calling oneself hip and edgy, and taking over the universities and k k kulture

    the only thing these people have going is theres lots of ‘em, and theyre cunning at forming polities of the co-inept, thus producing our Diversity Dystopia . . . which, ironically, IS worth deconstructing

    @Oogenhand,

    Culture war can be waged back.

    I have my 2013 motto. Thank you, sir.

    @GKC,

    Some things are beyond explaining. I can understand not laughing when present, as you’d naturally (if not a PoMo freak!) be concerned for the “dancer.” But I think they posted this video, seriously.

    Friggin classic asian BS theater. No offense, but this sort of “theater” performance makes me quinge!

    The best artists actually were geniuses; it just took a while for society in general to catch on; sometimes many years after their death. Most have no idea just how smart Leonardo DaVinci really was. He was so many things, and yet soo good at all of them. He was supposedly a beast too; he good bend a horse shoe with his bare hands and back again!

    The thing is, even if a genius; it requires the steadfast hand and discipline of one willing to literally cultivate their own talent. The word cultivate really does come from farming; and it is hard work to cultivate a farm, especially when animals, modern tech, and raising a family are thrown in.

    Yet today; PC group think uses the insecure to throw them in with talented students and deconstruct us all. Not everyone is good at several things; many are barely even mediocre at one!

    After reading the above; this butter dance should inform you why I want to hurl. It is not the fat undisciplined pig failing at dancing, social adequacy, technique, fitness, or just general creativity; but the fact that people paid to watch, and actually encourage that monstrosity to perform.

    Unacceptable; and I will not apologize for my harsh judgement. We each receive our stripes; they are necessary aspects of failure which is the best teacher in building character. It is precisely the building of character that failure requires to pass.

    She has been approved for failing at multiple things; but hey, at least it is “art” right?

    It’s nihilism pure and simple — and largely funded by governments.

    The power of poststructuralism rests on the poor standards of scientific education in schools. Most arts and humanities undergraduates have barely reached competence in nineteenth century science so are easily seduced by Marxist materialism and its inevitable successor, postmodernism. Hey, its all relative! No it isn’t. Here is a dumbed down article that explains the issue: Do you have good intentions?.
