What If the Backlash from the Horrors of Postmodernism Produces a New Golden Era?

It’s said that nothing is certain.  And most of the time, that’s meant as a gloomy prognostication.  But sometimes, that turns out to be a good thing.  Sometimes, inexplicably, entropy doesn’t increase.  Sometimes, things get better and more organized, despite our best efforts to botch things up.  Sometimes, dictators are toppled, the Berlin Wall falls and polar bears overpopulate against the predictions of the great and the wise among us.  Thank God for that.

If history is an indication, the human condition is never a constant gray for very long, though it’s been rather constant and grayish for quite a long time here in the Postmodern era.  We know that things get very black at times, such as in times of widespread war.  Other times, the culture shines very brightly, indeed.

I don’t mean to go deeply into this question – only to pose it thoughtfully, for your consideration.  For I have a sense, intuitively, that the horrid grayness that reigned last century in the form of totalitarian regimes in the East and the relentless tyranny of globalism and political correctness in the West, may be coming to an end.  I think that people are finally reaching a flashpoint, and they’re ready to rebel.  I believe Brexit was the first solid sign of this in Europe, and I believe that the election of the Good Pirate, Donald Trump, as President of the United States, will be the clincher here in the States.

Rebellion does not automatically result in good times, of course.  More often the opposite. And there may likely be war before there’re good times.  But I feel that both may be our lot in the near future.  We’ve done absolutely nothing to deserve the good times after all.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  But God, in his mercy, only periodically gives us exactly what we deserve, which is war, famine, pestilence and death.  Other times, he gives us what he wants us to have, which is glorious happiness.  I feel it coming.  I can taste it.

And sometimes, little signs appear.  Signs that people are finally tired of socialists and  shitty music and lying media and political con-men and forced Sharia law and feminist bullshit and safe spaces and gun-free zones.  The Trump phenomenon is a good sign.  A very good sign.  That’s only just beginning, I think.  I’m especially encouraged by signs that the culture might be longing for a new golden era.  After all, real progress means going in the right direction.  Even if that means looking back a little.

Big fedora hat tip to the Lonely Libertarian, Angel, who put me onto the Postmodern Jukebox folks.  These guys really are addictive.

    this mornings concept – Cultural Marxism ver Cultural Imperialism

    Internet vigilantism is on the rise. So far, digital avengers have more or less limited their activities to shaming and exposing pedophiles, con men and giant douchebags. However, one can easily see a future where the moral-minded folks dish their harsh citizen justice out on anyone who steps outside the tight parameters of their idea of acceptable behavior.

    We know that things get very black at times – never more than at blacklivesmatter rallies…ok, there are also moonless nights.

    I can feel it coming too – I tasted it in the coconut daiquiri I had the other night and I can tell you now, it’s sublime.

    Things have a way of working themselves out.

    Chick in the leopard skin frock has a great voice. Much better than the original by a long shot.
