A few principles of Modernity are,
2.) There is no Transcendent Objective by which temporal meaning can find stability. All is subjectivism all the way down.
3.) There is no Eternal One and Many wherein the Temporal one and many can find meaning. All is subjective all the way down.
4.) Man begins with himself as his epistemic beginning point
5.) Historiography is only some “Historians” present transposed onto the past. Historicism prevails over History and Historical History disappears.
6.) Because all this is true, orientation to “reality” becomes orientation to the reality of the self. Really, for the Modern all is solipsism.
7.) If God exists, God exists as “man said loudly,” and so merely as some kind of limiting concept. Man takes the subjective self and objectifies it so that any objective he has is a “subjective objective.”
8.) Because there is no stable way to make distinctions because there is no Transcendent Objective by which temporal meaning can find stability, therefore distinctions must be eliminated. All must be equal.
All this explains the radical disintegration into the void that the West is experiencing. This also explains the vastly increased rate of mental illnesses and psychosomatic diseases we are seeing all around us. People who disconnect from reality for their own reality can not be stable people.
