Postmodernism Redux

For those of you thirsting for the knowledge that is pouring from the great intellects of our colleges and universities, especially the postmodernist studies of the rapidly immanentizing eschaton, of the nano-aggressive patriarchal concepts of genderism in automatic transmissions etc, I bring you a tiny snippet of contemporary wisdom. Read on….

Forgetting Bataille: Capitalist postcultural theory in the works of

1. Spelling and neodialectic feminism
“Sexual identity is part of the dialectic of culture,” says Foucault.
Drucker[1] implies that we have to choose between
Batailleist `powerful communication’ and the textual paradigm of consensus.
In the works of Gibson, a predominant concept is the concept of neocultural
language. Therefore, Sontag’s model of capitalist desublimation states that art
may be used to reinforce class divisions, but only if neodialectic feminism is
valid; if that is not the case, we can assume that the media is capable of
intent. Derrida promotes the use of Batailleist `powerful communication’ to
attack outmoded, sexist perceptions of society.

“Sexual identity is unattainable,” says Foucault; however, according to
Tilton[2] , it is not so much sexual identity that is
unattainable, but rather the futility, and subsequent failure, of sexual
identity. But many constructions concerning semantic theory may be found.
Baudrillard suggests the use of capitalist postcultural theory to modify and
analyse society.
The main theme of the works of Gibson is the role of the writer as
participant. However, if Batailleist `powerful communication’ holds, the works
of Gibson are postmodern. Hubbard[3] holds that we have to
choose between capitalist postcultural theory and capitalist dematerialism.
Thus, an abundance of discourses concerning the difference between
narrativity and society exist. Lacan promotes the use of neodialectic feminism
to challenge hierarchy…..

If you made it this far, congratulations. If you thought this is meaningless drivel, you’re right! The paper is as fake as postmodernism. But this is the kind of writing that is exuded from all kinds of “Weirdo Studies” departments in our faux universities. In fact, it wasn’t written by anyone at all. It is the product of a highly entertaining computer program: The Postmodernism Generator. (The “Miskatonic University” was a dead giveaway, actually, as fans of the late H P Lovecraft’s horror stories will know.)

The program was written in C in 1996 by Andrew Bulhak using the Dada Engine, “…a system for generating random text from recursive grammars.” And it’s readily available to all for entertainment purposes. Perhaps you could generate six or seven papers and submit them for your Master’s degree in Neo-feminist Theory of Genderized Armpit Hair?

Here’s the link for the Postmodernism Generator(here). Each time you open the web page it generates an entirely new paper; in half an hour you’ll have all you need for your shiny new college degree.
