How is that trolling? I feel like your position obviously contradicts itself if you tell me that there is no truth and that I am wrong.

You are currently falling into a modernist trap and trying to use it as a critique of postmodernity. That does. Not. Work.



It's logically consistent. Demonstrate the fallacy he made in deriving the fallacy from what you said.

If if doesn't work, then why won't you answer the question?

Is the only objective truth that there is no objective truth?

Have you ever seen an Amish terrorist?


Yes, their attacks tend to be much more tame though :p

Because that's a non-question.

that's his point. when you say that there is no objective truth, by definition you are proposing that as an objective truth, which is a self-defeating statement.

A non-question? It seems that you realize how incomprehensible post-modernistic thought is, which is why you can't bring yourself to give me a simple yes or no answer.

As usual, vegito makes a claim and gets arrogant as **** when we ask him to back it up.

You can't concisely explain how postmodernism eliminates the applicability of actual logic to arguments, including its own? Then stop pretending like you have this secret knowledge that the bourgeois posters just "don't get."

Or haven't you figured out by now that the very state which postmodernism was created to attain (i.e. freedom from structure) is the very thing which prevents it from being applicable to anything else? Since the basic assumption that structures don't exist is impossible to prove when you're not allowed to use structure to prove it?

If you have some way of showing us that postmodernism can have its cake and eat it too (prove its superiority to modernism while simultaneously denying that structure has meaning) then go right ahead. And if my observations of postmodernism are somehow horribly wrong, show me that too. I'm listening.
