Postmodernismo, Igualitarismo, Globalismo
Postmodernism is the religious, philosophical and cultural ideology of globalism. But how this can be? How can economic and political world unification rise out of a worldview –or an anti-worldview – which exalts diversity and defines all unity, including political unity, as oppression?
Thus postmodernism paves the way to globalism, first by destroying any view which could rival it, and secondly by creating a level of chaos which calls for repressive measures –in the mistaken belief that chaos is freedom.
In Rene Guenon’s term from The Reign of Quantity, out of the modern modernist materialist Reign of Quantity, whose terminal phase is postmodernism, is ultimately born of the Reign of Inverted Quality, where democratic egalitarianism is destroyed not in the name of aristocracy but of chaos, to the benefit of those global socio-economic wizards to whom cultural chaos is natural and the high road to power.
Like a good communist, the good globalist learns that race doesn’t matter, culture is an impediment which can and should be overcome and all that really count is class.
