About PomoNews

PomoNews.com as a news blog has been discontinued. The PomoNews Archive however is still available as a reference blog concerning two major threats to modern Western Enlightenment civilization based on individual liberty:

- Postmodernism (pomo)
- Premodernism (premo)

The basis of our enquiries is a book entitled Explaining Postmodernism, written by Professor of Philosophy, Stephen Hicks. The tome can be downloaded here. Sampler in Persian (PDF).


YouTube edition:





The entire oeuvre of Ayn Rand -- modernist par excellence -- is another standard work of reference. A practical guide in that regard is the Ayn Rand Lexicon.
