OUR METAMODERN TIMES …’ DECENCY’ IS THE NEW BEHAVIORAL MINIMUM IN OUR METAMODERN CULTURE. DISGUSTING.

Decency is the new behavioral minimum.  Disgusting.  Yet in our metamodern culture, completely understandable.  Metamodernism is fraught with singularity; such as, our screenification society, three screens for each person; the communal living room, yet almost singular in nature because each is not always staring and therefore not sharing the largest screen in the room.  Yet the independence of the metamodern era apparently must swing its pendulum all the way to one side before it implodes from solitude to become again communally oriented.

SCIENCE, NOW A POLITICAL FRONTIER AND EXPANDING

By:  Jerome Day

Was there any doubt that politics plays a big part in scientific conversation?  No, not really, not since the Great Warming Debate.  The worry approaches when doubt is cast upon scientific consensus.  Science is normally and consistently neutral, for the most part, so the worry arises when science, as evidence-based is the main driver of public policy, and we all know who makes the policy decisions.

Deeper than the policy makers becoming influenced by lobbiests, modern swarm-minded ideas, fakenews, and such is the single thought of the power of one person added to another to another, to form a group with new consensus and  a new direction.  This is easily achieved. People are easily swayed by misstated facts, inflammatory dialogue and our modern social media fakenews and bully-mentality, thus allowing the present science, now a political frontier and expanding to be well within reach and possibly to sway in an entirely detrimental direction.
