Another Reason Why the Right Isn't Taken Seriously by the Left

The Marxian Post-Modernist STRAWMAN

You didn't identify the narrator in this extravagant piece of fluent Academic Doublespeak –– i.e. BS.

I'll bet it's something like Aaron Rosenberg, Herman Schoenstein, Bernard Roth, Moishe Portniy, Herschel Klahrfeld, or Isaak Shor.

His derrible "digzhun" is a dead giveaway.

I lizzened to every azz numbingk momend, and was reminded of the supreme wit and wisdom of my dear old friend Bitch Cassidy of the glory days at FPM:

"Honey" she said, "I don't have to eat a pound of shit to know it don't taste good, and ain't no good for my digestion."

FreeThinke said...

Jordan Peterson –– and I –– know everything we NEED to know about Marxism, Cultural-Marxism, Post-Modernism and the fusillade of BULLSHIT and GOBBLEDYGOOK surroundung and supporting them to know that Post-Modernism is INDEED, an outgrowth –– a product –– of the Cultural Marxist movement, dreamt up by the Frankfurt School to make Marxism seem more "palatable" to the Bourgeoisie and other perceived "victims" of prosperiity, comfort, ease, decency, common sense and freedom.

There is an ancient Sufi parable about coffee: "He who tastes, knows; he who tastes not, knows not."

FreeThinke said...

Between thinking and talking the distance is vast.
Between talking and doing is vaster.
Leftists love to confuse then conflate
The three, for then they feel free
Most self-righteously
To accuse, then contuse, and berate
The people they hate so much faster!

FreeThinke said...

Driving topics into the ground
Does not make discourse more profound.
Argument is far less vincible
If one concentrates on principle.
Too much detail does too little
To matter e'en a jot or tittle,
Stick to basics; broadly limned
Lest debaters minds grow dimmed.

Ever since the proud Titanic sank
Mankind has with rising Panic drank.
He does this every day. Now he’s addicted.
’Tis pitiful to see him so afflicted,
‘Cause now a new “Titanic" must be sunk
To satisfy the cravings of this drunk,
Every day to meet his need for harm,
So he tells himself today the world’s too warm!

Post-modernism isn't your cup of tea. I get it.

But please, don't offer any not-so-subtle descriptions of how non-nutritive post-modernism appears or upon the "likely intentions" of the cooks, if you've never swallowed a single mouthful.

I have no doubt that like almost anything, misused or used excessively or exclusively it can make you sick. You can drown if you drink too much water and starve if its your only source of nutrition. But the developers of the theories weren't necessarily trying to make EVERYONE sick.

As Plato's Socrates says in "Apology"

And when you accuse me of corrupting and deteriorating the youth, do you allege that I corrupt them intentionally or unintentionally?

Intentionally, I say.

But you have just admitted that the good do their neighbours good, and the evil do them evil. Now, is that a truth which your superior wisdom has recognized thus early in life, and am I, at my age, in such darkness and ignorance as not to know that if a man with whom I have to live is corrupted by me, I am very likely to be harmed by him; and yet I corrupt him, and intentionally, too—so you say, although neither I nor any other human being is ever likely to be convinced by you. But either I do not corrupt them, or I corrupt them unintentionally; and on either view of the case you lie. If my offence is unintentional, the law has no cognizance of unintentional offences: you ought to have taken me privately, and warned and admonished me; for if I had been better advised, I should have left off doing what I only did unintentionally—no doubt I should; but you would have nothing to say to me and refused to teach me. And now you bring me up in this court, which is a place not of instruction, but of punishment.

Thanks to the work of the varsity.

Life today's a sick joke.

What it needs is a poke

You want me to shut up?

Okay consider me gone –– till next time. };^)>

But I don't believe anyone should say I have not "tasted" this thing, when in fact I –– and all the rest of us, yourself included, –– have been SURROUNDED by it, HAMPERED by it, are DROWNING in it, and have been SUFFOCATED by it for the past fifty-five years to this very day.

Thersites said...

If you credit post-modernism for all the "bad"... what credit should it get for the "good" in the last 55 years of your life?

If giving a "name" to all the sh*t that has adversely affected you gives you comfort, fine. But it's a sham-comfort.

WHen you say the Right isn't Taken seriously by the Left, are you referring to Academics?

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

It's nice to see Jordan Peterson on this blog. He's the anti-Zizek ;)

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

Very Jungian.

Thersites said...

Jordan Peterson, Charles Murray, et al. Yes, academics. There are right wing post-modernists, Jacques Lacan and Peter Sloterdijk are two.

(((Thought Criminal))) said...

book learned blowhards all. :P

Thersites said...

No doubt. But with arguments of considerable merit that can be taken seriously and not filled with resentment towards the world as it is, and not how one wishes it to be.

I need a code to signal when I'm agreeing with FT and when I'm making fun lol.

Left and right... the appeal to authority fallacy vs. the appeal to tradition fallacy in a debate over who used the tu quoque fallacy first.
