Follow me, Satan by Ilya Repin, 1903
The post-modernist enemy can unite secular and religious people, the leader of the Essence of Time movement and political scientist Sergey Kurginyan said on December 7 on the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program.
“This is a real, great post-modernist enemy. And as long as we fail to see that this is a new war, similar to the war against Nazism or even greater, and as long as we fail to be on alert about it, the enemy will be winning,” Kurginyan noted.
The leader of Essence of Time added that separation takes place between those who believe that Man will ascend, with or without God, and those who want to destroy Man. This plan does not distinguish between the left-wing and the right-wing.
“The enemy of humanity is what unites secular and non-secular people. We can see how the enemy of humanity has stepped out and how he is taking off his mask. Therefore, humanity must unite against its enemy,” the political scientist said.
Kurginyan added that the enemy is visible, and it uses COVID-19, the destruction of state, and the destruction of culture. Post-modernity also proclaims the death of logocentrism, Man, and history.
The post-modernist concepts “denounce” the cornerstone philosophic foundations of the previous eras, pre-modernity and modernity, and all the conventional concepts that they have produced. As a result, alternative concepts are proposed, which allegedly offer the right description of the new state of the world of material and spiritual reality, “the state of post-modernity.”
Then, based on these concepts, post-modernism creates the semantic accents that it needs. For example, it is proposed that universal systems of concepts, signs, symbols, and metaphors are lies, that no holistic entities exist anymore, and that “emancipated and unbound” fragements dominate. A supplementary thesis is that nothing exists but texts, and the world is a text. And the only way to understand a text is deconstruction and decentralization.
Deconstruction of the text world reveals that structures and systemic consistency are not properties of reality. These are only properties of the individual language everyone uses to describe their own ― fundamentally different! ― ideas of reality. For example, a social or an economic reality.
This results in a conclusion that the social or economic aspect does not have, and cannot have, any sustainable structural or systemic consistence. Therefore, there is no sense building communities, to say nothing of society, as well as planning or managing economy.
