Posmodernism Didn't Cause Trump...And It Doesn't Explain Him

Overall, this isn't very good.
   Pomo didn't cause Trump, it's true. And 'postmodernism' is used way too loosely...though I'm not sure that postmodernism can consistently make that objection... But part of the problem is that there's no term for the mishmash of trickle-down postmodernism, poststructuralism, critical theory and leftist politics that is so influential in the humanities and social sciences, on the left, and in high/middle-brow media. I say things like "the postpostmodern mishmash"...which is not exactly catchy...
   Anyway, I'm not going to Fisk this thing. I've got stuff to do.
