Those who embrace the basic tenets of postmodernism possess a desire to both reject and accept logic at the same time. This blatant in-your-face contradiction and pretense is what makes postmodernism so confounding to understand, but also what makes it psychologically attractive to so many.

Postmodernism posits as a basic premise the rejection of reason as a Western superstition. It does not demonstrate that reason is akin to superstition, for the practical reason that an argument requires evidence or proof, and evidence and proof require an objective reality to establish evidential facts acquired from the foundational sensory evidence that forms the building blocks for the creation of higher-level concepts.

The defining feature of postmodernism and its variants is a psycho-epistemological requirement to short-circuit the mind by both accepting and rejecting logic simultaneously. It is an ideology that sets the human mind against its own nature. To abandon logic is to abandon the mind's purpose as the causal link between desires and successful action.

Postmodernism has its roots in Marxism, and thus the obsession with power dynamics and identity grievances remains as a paradigm for social conflict as a means to bring about collectivism as a utopian vision of social control and do away with any recognition of individual rights and individual self-interest.

Postmodernism, when an attempt is made to adopt it as a functioning body of practical and life-sustaining ideas, leads to a form of cognitive impairment and debilitation.

Postmodernism is a body of ideas loosely packaged together and set forth to purposefully attack and fracture rational and scientific metaphysics and epistemology, leaving mankind damned to a lifetime struggle against absurdity, chaos, submission, and sublimation of the individual into the collective.

Postmodernism as a skeptical philosophy and ideology is all the rage in today’s culture and is becoming increasingly mainstream as people begin to pay attention to the causes of the confusing absurdities and disconcerting destabilizing events playing out in our political institutions, media, universities, communities, workplaces, and perhaps even our own households.

A plan is just a road map or compass to get you from one place to another. It need not be overly complicated, but it needs to be detailed enough to serve its purpose. Anything done long-term requires a plan to guide thinking and outline intentions and boundaries for employees in getting work done and serving the larger business purpose and objectives.

It is a common perspective amongst leaders that an organizational statement of purpose must be short, memorable and motivating like the world’s greatest marketing slogans or brand tag lines.
