Explaining The Real World, Realistically


(For Antara & Indrina)

It is said that Spencer’s idea of tragedy
was a beautiful theory slain by one single ugly fact.

Well, that fits.

EuroModernism (European Modernism) was a thing of (meretricious) beauty.
It promised Utopia.
Liberte, egalite, fraternite?
So, what happened?
It was overcome, negated, by realite.
Are you listening, Mr Fukuyama?
Is this still the best of all possible worlds,
Dr Pangloss?

In my critique of EM – the only totalising critique of the paradigms that have ruled the world under European tutelage – I explain it all.
Why it was (fore)doomed.
And how we can get out of it.

There is NO other explanation that fits ALL the facts.
Nor is there any other complete salve than the one I have proposed.

Those who still use EM slogans/agendas/narratives to get out of this mess are delusional.

As Einstein said it you can’t solve problems using the same ideas that sourced the problem.

Read that last line over one more time.

I offer a transcendent critique that sublates the entire, misconceived , baggage of the ‘enlightenment’.
Here (below) the links to my rendition(s).

It might yet pay to read and absorb them.

Whenever and wherever.

I warrant.
