Since, I suppose, virtually everyone who works at the NYT is a graduate of an elite American college, it's no surprise that the NYT is a bastion of Postmodernism -- the ideology with which students at our elite schools are now routinely brainwashed. The basic axiom of Postmodernism is, of course, that there is no such thing as "the Truth." There are only individual "truths" -- subjective versions of what happened or what is happening. We can never get beyond these personalized truths to the real truth -- because there is no such thing as the real truth. Our own private and highly-opinionated truths are all we shall ever have. The "Truth" -- a provable, unassailable version of what happened or what is happening -- is a figment, an illusion, a fiction, no more real than a centaur. That's why the NYT can write about Hamas's attacks on Israel as it does. Its on-the-one-hand-on-the-other-hand approach is designed to let us know it's aware that there's no True account of what's going on in Israel -- there are only versions, each calling itself true. The funny thing is that, at the end of the day, after the NYT has labored mightily to prove to us that it stands above the fray and isn't taking sides in this battle of the truths, it always ends up taking the side of Hamas. Somehow, Hamas's version of events always ends up being truer than Israel's version -- even though, according to Postmodernism, there's no such thing as "truer" or "falser." By some strange alchemy, then, Hamas's versions always end up being truer. Always, always, always. So much for Postmodernism. In the end, the Left preaches it -- but doesn't believe a word of it. It's a monumental hoax -- and it's corrupting our young people at an alarming rate.
JOHN 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? . . .
