In this episode, we deconstruct our philosophical values and discuss the concept of post-modernism. Post-modernism is a complex and very broad movement that began as a crusade of the arts and became a philosophy that rejects absolute truth. We also muse about the variety of ways that our human realities are distorted. How can we know that perception is truth? How can a philosophy that rejects absolute claims support the ideas of anarchism? Let’s take a look!

Objective truth is a concept in the human experience that hinders social innovation and creates division. It may not be evil for an person to hold values as truth, but accepting information as absolute can expose the mind to reality distortion. Both governments and corporations are known to use manipulative tactics that expose these vulnerabilities. You can fight back, by keeping a discipline of open-mindedness and engaging in cooperative discourse. These are examples of Peaceful Treason.
