Oscillation or vascillation? Metamodernism seems to use quite a lot of words to say nothing.

Are these the new Pavel Jerdanowitch's and Pierre Brassau's of our time?

Indeed. They have me wondering...

Originally the term was directed towards explaining the Alt-Right... but the white nationalists kinda tarred the entire genre.

The alt-right is just 1930s left-wing progressivism with Harambe memes

...and MetaModernism is likely simply the latest trend in Madison Avenue's exploitation of Cultural Capitalism.

Like I said before... Our problem is that the capital's "disciplinary matrix" hasn't changed yet... and so no radically changed "future" is possible. We're trapped in a "cycle" of Enlightenment modernities. Toffler's "Power Shift" hasn't kicked in yet.

Perhaps "metamodernism" is just modernism hoisting post-modernism on it's own petards.

Exactly.
