Authentic Values: Recent History

Recent History –

Habits of the Heart by Sullivan, Bellah, Madsen

Chronicles the the shift in the 1970’s to postmodernism and political correctness, which has lead to the socially predatory rhetoric of critical race theory and the language of intersectionality.

The 80’s and 90’s synthetic values took over the Media and the educational academies.

Defintions

  • Postmodernism –doesn’t accept truth claims. It is time bound and doesn’t recognize timeless truths. This is the beginning of tyrannical language cloaked in victimization.
  • Axiomatic Truths – basic starting places-“Properly basic;” truth claims;; Ethical economy.
  • Critical Theory- power dynamics regarding race, sex, culture, etc. based on relative power dynamics; who has power and who doesn’t.

“There are two sides to every argument but one side to facts.”

Relationships are more complicated when cultures are breaking down. Culture provides a common frame of reference that makes meaning and communication easier and more straightforward.
