Description:

Hardcover. 348 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.0in. x 1.3in.In Culture of Terror Eugene Narrett accomplishes a remarkable task: defining and identifying the roots of postmodernism in the scientific utopianism of the Enlightenment. Dr. Narrett explains and traces the increasing totalitarian core of this drive to control and perfect human beings to the media distraction machine. Using core texts from political philosophy and literature, he follows the Romantic revolution in values and scientific utopianism, through Modernism and its suicidal, relativistic, power mad postscript, postmodernism. Using a broad palette of great writings from many disciplines he traces Americas regression to nihilistic paganism directed by an oligarchy and a new, hi-tech feudalism that impoverishes and de-humanizes. In America, the flower of the West, the contradictions and self-negation in this process are most pronounced and grotesque as shown by popular culture which he examines extensively. Culture of Terror is a unique tale of imperial identity theft playing out its logic in confessions of regret, expressive instrospection (psychology) and the exhibitionism of media spectacles that absorb and program everything in the disintegrating language of its its distraction machine.

Synopsis: In Culture of Terror Eugene Narrett accomplishes a remarkable task: defining and identifying the roots of postmodernism in the scientific utopianism of the Enlightenment. Dr. Narrett explains and traces the increasing totalitarian core of this drive to control and "perfect" human beings to the media "distraction machine." Using core texts from political philosophy and literature, he follows the Romantic revolution in values and scientific utopianism, through Modernism and its suicidal, relativistic, power mad postscript, postmodernism. Using a broad palette of great writings from many disciplines he traces America's regression to nihilistic paganism directed by an oligarchy and a new, hi-tech feudalism that impoverishes and de-humanizes. In America, the 'flower' of the West, the contradictions and self-negation in this process are most pronounced and grotesque as shown by popular culture which he examines extensively. "Culture of Terror" is a unique tale of imperial identity theft playing out its logic in confessions of regret, expressive instrospection (psychology) and the exhibitionism of media spectacles that absorb and program everything in the disintegrating language of its its "distraction machine."

About the Author: Eugene Narrett is the author of five books on the cultural history of the West. He is a widely published essayist on culture and politics, from Art History and Fine Arts to Book & film Reviews and geopolitics. A distinguished teacher, he has learned about the totalitarian aspects of what is termed "liberalism" first hand as the change agents pursue their ravaging of culture and human decency.
