If you have been living under a rock like a fucking moron you probably have never heard of metamodernism. Matter fact if you’re like most of the pieces of shit walking american streets you have no clue what the fuck I’m talking about.

Here’s the deal back in the 1920’s we had a belief that we could make the world a magical place through technology. Remember the high ideals of the World’s Fair? That was a bunch of bullshit that missed the full on oppression of over 50% of the country. That’s where Post-modernism started in on the scene fucking the oppressive constructs up by dismantling everything you held dear and leaving you with the knowledge the world is a piece of shit and everything’s going to die. That’s the feminist movement in the 80’s and 90’s. Ever wonder why grunge is such amazing music? That’s it’s fucking post modern deconstructionism pissing on the standard rock norms of the times.

Where do we stand today? If you ever listened to the later interviews with DFW (David Foster Wallace dipshit), you probably heard him telling you post-modernism is over. At least if you had your head out of your ass. If you didn’t you probably think Trump is the greatest piece of shit alive. DFW was right. Post modernism is dead, the millennials are fucking over this deconstruction shit and were ready to fucking build great things. Yeah the worlds a shitty place, we get it. But to us post-modernism is old news, and modernism is what our grandparents remember.  Where are we at now? Wait for it, were now Meta-Moderns. We sit there and dress like our favorite disney characters as stealth cosplay because we need the fucking fairy tales to get through this shitty place you created. Do we realize how fucking ridiculous it is to be in your mid-twenties doing that shit? Absolutely, and we’re doing it anyway so fuck you and your cultural norms. We’re going to make a world that uses technology to bring meaning and freedom back into our lives. We see the irony in our ambitions but fuck it we’re going to be sincere to ourselves. We’re going to live authentically.

Meta in meta modernism is referencing the itself as a reflection like you probably expected. Instead we’re discussing the position in reference to multiple positions, the in between state. We are setting ourselves between the high ideals of modernism and the destructiveness of post modernism. Using the tools of both periods we’re constructing a middle ground.

If you’re on the far-right spectrum of politics you’re likely not reading this blog and probably only begrudgingly. That’s good, because fuck your ideology.  The far right has recently discovered post-modernsim and is using it against the ideals of the left. They’re deconstructing the deconstruction of gender and race in an effort to make themselves feel better about being bigoted shitheads. Trump is leading the way in the deconstruction of the safe guards and policies that protect the lower classes who are too blinded to see what is happening. Fuck Obamacare, but I love my ACA benefits. The right is now post modern and the progressive left is, well, still post-modern. With the regressive party and the progressive part occupying the same philosophical ground you can see why things are fucked right now.

Is anyone taking the steps into the future? Yes, check out this arrogant fuck calling himself Hanzi Freinacht. He’s a fucking recluse in the swiss alps writing about where the fuck our next steps are going. Where the fucking millennials are taking the god damned world with their social media and mamby pamby feelings. Because we were born into an America where democracy is a gerontocracy of those who grew up in the best economic period the U.S. has ever seen to the bafflement of economists, and who are telling the millennials to suck it up. The fact that the you’re cities housing has almost zero turnover in ownership and your buying power is half of what they grew up with is no biggie. It’s just the avocado toast you love and the three dollar coffees.

Anyway here’s some fucking links to educate yourself out of being an ignorant piece of shit:
