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.
