SubscribeStar Saturday: Unreality

There is a distinct sense of unreality hovering over the West lately.  I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this sensation—if you have, please leave a comment—but the Zeitgeist of our age seems to be a sense of alienated disconnection from Reality itself.  We’re living in a profoundly unserious time, led by unserious people, debating unserious problems.

Men can have babies.  Children can choose their gender.  Everything is just a social construct, after all; in such a world, anything imaginable is possible.  And while there is no fixed morality, we’re told, questioning the social construction that everything is a social construction is an assault on a truth that doesn’t exist—but it’s still bad, so don’t do it!

The pretzel logic of nihilistic relativism twists us into macabre perversions of ourselves.  Such is the consequence of embracing the unreal and rejecting Truth and Reality.

But Truth and Reality are there, whether we accept it or not.  And they hit hard.

  1. I couldn’t read the article because I don’t subscribe but I know what you mean about unreality. My very first piece for TCW – more a hot topic than anything else – written nearly 3 years ago, asked whether we were in the age or had entered the age of post truth.

    (I posted the link for said piece – in which Audre Myers was mentioned – but WordPress wouldn’t allow it so if you go to TCW, click on writers and my name, you can find the piece I alluded to)

    If I’d known then what I know now, I’d have maybe posited how far the lunacy of the modern world could go but it’s shown us already.

    I’m heartened by the very common sense people who speak out against the insanity of the modern age. They remind us that not everyone has fallen down the rabbit hole.
