NEO-MODERNISM: The Scourge of Western Culture

Neomodernism (in non-Theological terms) is characterized by a total repudiation of the perennial wisdom (wisdom of the ages).

In its "modern" form, neo-modernism reduces to "there is no God", in its post-modern form; "there is no truth." The later formulation is self-referentially absurd meaning it is self-contradictory. The former is demonstrably false on the basis of both deductive and inductive reasoning.

Many important advances have been made since the Enlightenment in both Science and Technology. Unfortunately, in the realms of Philosophy and Theology, much which was once known to advanced civilization has been lost through a variety of reductionist philosophical systems including scientism, utilitarianism, empiricism, idealism, panentheism (finite godism) and the like.

Neomodernist thinking has been particularly destructive to the so-called traditional morality (golden rule ethic) best exemplified by the Aristotelian/Thomistic synthesis.

Why is it that only after leaving the administration do former Bush officials "come clean" with the truth?

That's simple. If they did it before leaving, they would be fired!
