Here’s my personal attempt to outdo the postmodernist essay generator. This post was sparked by some philosophical emails flying around at work, analyzing the works of two great 20th-century philosophers:
The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made!
— Groucho Marx
Money can’t buy you happiness.. but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery.
— Spike Milligan
Spike Milligan’s problems exemplified the philosphical conundrums inherent in challenging the paradigms of a modernist culture with deconstuctivist irony and consequent existential confusion related to the perception of departure from established social norms. However such norms are an illusion propagated by those attempting to conflate their countercultural ideology with cultural tradition. The enterprise is doomed to fail, for the prevailing cultural notion of “truth” is no longer a concrete concept highlighted by its counterpoint “error”. Truth in the contemporary conception is a plurifom abstraction ultimately signifying nothing.
