My Head Is Spinning...


I've just spent far too much time on Steven Den Beste's USS Clueless following his thinking and linking. Quite a bit of information on what he refers to as "p-idealists" (philosophical idealists) and their followers in the post-modern world. This one is long...even for him! He addresses a great many things, including (but not limited to) Islamism, Chomskyism, anti-modernism, elitism, "inbred academia," and more. I don't know that I agree with all of his analyses (heck, I think I may even be condemned by some of them!), but I do admit that I'm impressed with the amount of thought that has gone into this one. While my own mind is reeling with all the information I've just tried to absorb, my initial reactions are that of a cautious assent.

Now I have to reexamine his positions and information, just to make sure I've got it right, and then see if I can counter him in a few areas...'Once more, into the breach!'
