Why We Struggle to Find Meaning Today| What is Neomodernism and Why does it matter? | #5

This is the last episode for our mini series on historical movements. We've finally arrived at the movement of today: Neomodernism. What is it? What does it mean? We've got a lot of ground to cover here. By the end of this episode, my hope is that you walk away with a better understanding of how we arrived at our current cultural climate. We'll take a look at early Neomodern critics such as Habermas, and we'll talk about the role that the Marvel Cinematic Universe--particularly Iron Man and Captain America--played in the emergence of Neomodernism. There is anger, frustration, and contention all around us. That's true. However, there is also great possibility for finding meaning, for learning how to carve out sacred space from which we can learn how to become the best version of ourselves. More than anything, there is great hope in the emergence of humanity. We just need to see it and organize it. I hope you enjoy the episode. 

Would you like to support the efforts to bring civility back to meaningful discourse? Well, you can, and with little more than a click of a button.

  3. Visit the main website for The Neutral Ground Podcast at https://theneutralgroundpodcast.com/ and send me an email or leave an audio message for me with some thoughts or questions about one of our topics. I might end up using it on the podcast for all of us to grapple with together.
  4. Buy me a cup of coffee...err...I mean Ko-Fi at https://ko-fi.com/theneutralgroundpodcast. Donations are always appreciated and are useful to help fray the costs of maintaining The Neutral Ground Podcast.
  5. Finally, and most importantly, just be kind and patient with others in conversation. Try to model for those around you the difference between conversation and debate. Debate and dialogue are not the same thing. We need more dialogue in our everyday speech, and we need to limit debate to where it is most needed and useful.

Any one of the above items is equally important to me. I am genuinely humbled and moved by the feedback I'm receiving, and the support that I'm getting from all of you. Thank you.

Sincerely,

-Joe
