(VIDEO) JORDAN PETERSON ON THE EVIL OF POSTMODERNISM

Political correctness, nihilism, radical equality, Social Justice Warriors, identity politics, demonization, personal attacks, emotional appeals, tamper tantrums, triggerings and safe spaces, the Alt-Right and the Alt-Left...what does it all mean? It's part of a study everyone needs to get acquainted with: social psychology (or social pathology, if you wish).



April 15, 2017 Jordan Peterson On The Evil Of Postmodernism.

UPDATE: A belated video of Jordan Peterson on the evils of Postmodernism for those who have not yet figured out what pernicious anti-philosophy is governing our age. The primer was written some years ago by Stephen Hicks.You can find videos and audio material in the above pages to this blog. One would ask, what is the antidote to this evil ideology? In the most basic form that would be anyone of the Aristotelian school, primarily Thomas of Aquinas and Ayn Rand's Objectivism: any treatise on philosophy that teaches the objectiveness of reality and morality. On Aug. 17, 2017 we posted a dialog between Hicks and Peterson which we are gladly reposting here for easy reference.




August 17, 2017 Jordan Peterson talks to Stephen Hicks, author of the compendium on Postmodernism. 

Yesterday Jordan B Peterson spoke with Dr. Stephen Hicks, professor in the philosophy department at Rockford University. Dr. Hicks is the author of the influential and courageous 2004 book Explaining Postmodernism: Skepticism and Socialism from Rousseau to Foucault, which is perhaps even more relevant and important now than it was when it was published. They spoke in depth about the history of philosophy as it has developed since medieval times, trying to understand and describe the processes that led to the rise of postmodern theory.

The book itself can be purchased at Amazon. Dr. Hicks has also made it available in pdf form here. A useful review/overview, written by Dr. Steven Sanders, can be found hereAudiobook. For that and more on Postmodernism check out our About page.

HOW TO ESCAPE THE AGE OF MASS DELUSION?

Nearly 100 years ago, Walter Lippmann wrote about “the manufacture of consent” in his classic work, “Public Opinion.” On the heels of that book, Edward Bernays penned a little volume called “Propaganda,” in which he stated that an elite would always be responsible for making the public aware of “new ideas” which the public would then act upon as the elite nudged them into it. Related, but more in-depth is Jacques Ellul’s 1962 book, “Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes.” Political propaganda aims to mobilize the masses to move an agenda forward. That’s most effectively done when the masses are unaware of the process. It’s what “community organizers” work towards, whether they know it or not. Once the masses are mobilized to push for a cause, the propagandists’ goals can be put into law. (...) One of the best books that cracks the code on what we are living through was written by Dutch psychiatrist Joost A. M. Meerloo about 60 years ago. Mull over the first line of his book’s forward, and you will think he is writing about today:
“This book attempts to depict the strange transformation of the free human mind into an automatically responding machine – a transformation which can be brought about by some of the cultural undercurrents in our present-day society as well as by deliberate experiments in the service of a political ideology.” (Source)
