Why Post-Modernism Won't Win

A very inspiring blog entry from South Africa.  I encourage you to follow the link and read the arguments in detail, but here is a summary of the main points from the entry itself:

     So, the long term chances of survival of Postmodernism are not good. Western ideologies are rising and falling faster; Western racial dominance is being challenged and the new leadership will not be so Postmodern; Generally, the more postmodern the church, in the long term the more they shrink; Demographically, postmodernists have fewer children and will go into exponential decline; Postmodernism is intellectually inconsistent with itself and with conscience and reality; the social damage of postmodernism will be exposed; the leading intellectual philosophers of the world are losing interest in postmodernism; finally, postmodernism itself should be seen as just God judging and handing over people who fail to glorify him to foolishness and degradation. Postmodernists exude an arrogance that they have history on their side as did communists before that. But generally once an empire with the myth of world conquest starts to decline it does so fast. 

I love the observation that post-modernists and liberation theologians are already bored with their own ideas! The longer version is well worth your time: Why Post Modernism Won't Win
