Pluralism / Postmodernism are Myths


  1. a political theory or system of power-sharing among a number of political parties.

2. a theory or system that recognizes more than one ultimate principle.

Pluralism says … “There are many ways to acceptably arrive at truth.” However what is really being said here is, “the one way In order to arrive at truth is to allow many ways to arrive at truth.”

So … the pluralist is not really being pluralistic because he has one way to truth that requires that many ways be allowed as ways to truth. The false pluralist will viciously disagree with the honest non pluralist who says contrary to the false pluralist, “there is only one way to truth and that one way is this one way.”

You see the argument is not really over whether there is more than one way to truth. The argument is over the pluralists one way to truth which is many ways and the non pluralists one way to truth which is one way.

Pluralism is a myth.

The same kind of reasoning is true for postmodernism as well. Postmodernism claims there is no such thing as capital “T” truth allowing for a plurality of truths that are unique to both small identifiable groups and even as unique to individuals. Everyone has their own truth, or so the theory goes.

But of course, like pluralism, this is all myth. Postmodernism does indeed have capital “T” truth and that capital “T” truth is that there is no such thing as capital “T” truth. As such, per postmodernism, any system that says there is such a thing as capital “T” truth is denying the capital “T” truth of postmodernism and so is ruled out a-priori as truth. So, postmodernism is not really about people having each their own truths but rather is a totalistic system that demands that everyone bow to their capital “T” truth.

Postmodernism is a myth.
