An Explanation of Postmodernism

I have described Postmodernism as the philosophy of Democratic Party (and the source of most of their problems) in a number of posts starting with this one. A kind reader sends this great explanation by Gary Hull of the post. The first page explains its evolutions and viewpoints. The second page explains the post-moderns war with America's traditional philosophy through the vehicle of multiculturalism. The postscript focuses on the role of racism in muliculturalism. My only criticism of the article is that it credits the Greeks with creating philosophy 2,500 years ago and I would say that the Chinese were equally active in the same period of time creating enduring philosophies. Sun Tzu's principle that philosophy is the source of unity is well articulated by Mr.Hull in his article.
Without philosophy, though, to guide and integrate it, a culture becomes aimless and Balkanized. If the repudiation of philosophy continues, a society’s institutions are torn asunder and it ceases to be a culture. By obliterating the concept “philosophy,” post-Moderns know they can destroy American culture — and all it implies: Western science, Western law, Western education.
In reading this, I want to add that there is one area where modern philosophy went very, very right: Karl Popper's philosophy of science. Popper disposes of Kant's division between the perceived world and the "true" reality as a linguistic artifact, a distinction without a difference. Instead, Popper suggests that what we as human beings do is create theories about how the world works. None of those theories are complete in that they describe everything, but they can be measured by their utility. For a theory to be scientific, Popper requires that, you must propose some way that the theory can be DISPROVEN through experimentation. If a theory can explain any set of facts, it isn't a scientific theory. It is an object of faith. No number of conforming facts can "prove" a theory. It is the absence of non-conforming facts, despite looking for them, that makes a theory useful. Religion obviously is a matter of faith, but by Popper's standards, some "scientific" theories prove not to be scientific at all. For example, is the theory of evolution scientific? Can you imagine any set of facts from living animals or the fossil record that would disprove evolution? No matter how useless and confusing a physical feature might be--the tail of a peacock, or beak of a platypus, evolution assures us that it exists because it was the best possible adaptation to the environment. Can you imagine any fossil that evolution could not explain? Evolutionary theory, like an act of God, can explain any set of facts. Sun Tzu's strategy is also built on a concept of testing. In Sun Tzu's system, the test is whether or not you can make victory pay. Winning the battle is not the point of strategy. Different people can have different opinions about who won, but at the end of the process, one party or the other is going to be stronger and wealthier and the other is going to be weaker and poorer. Victory is falsifiable. If you are poorer for the battle, you lost. For example, after 9/11, America lost billions of dollars in economic activity and Al Qaeda peaked in their fund raising (about $30 million a year). They won. After Iraq, America's economy is booming and Al Qaeda is at a twenty year low (about $1-2 million in funding). We won.
