We spend a great deal of our time in chaos and nonattainment.
Our modernist forebears had at least the
driving thought of a central paradigm. They knew what the
Good was, what Virtue was -- and how by pursuing these
things they could gain in material wealth and physical
vitality. As the modern world decayed in the napalm showers
of Vietnam and the demanifestation of public virtue during
Watergate, the values were lost, the goals set astray, and
the center gave way. This has produced the two great
factors that rule the postmodernist world -- weakness and
speed.
Weakness is the condition of a having no ruling
thoughts. Anybody that's loud enough, stylish enough, or
otherwise can present themselves with the appropriate Symbol
can gain a group of followers. God is indeed a shout in the
street. We will see any number of opportunistic cults,
enraged bombers, and marching morons. Some looking with
nostalgia to the end of the modernist era may think that
such mass movements are some healthy remanifestation of the
protests of the 60s. In fact it is just the opposite.
Today's mass movements are people looking for an
Establishment to join.
