“In the meantime, modernity, that once proud heresy, has visibly started to topple. Postmodernists are running around gleefully, just like looters after an earthquake in a great city, but postmodernity’s self-confessed parasitic relativism means that it has a cultural staying power which can be measured in weeks. After the looted Twinkies® run out, everyone will be hungry again.”
