In order to understand the craziness going on in the world right now you need to understand this cause and that it is being spread everywhere.

“Postmodernism became the leading intellectual movement in the late twentieth century. It has replaced modernism, the philosophy of the Enlightenment. For modernism’s principles of objective reality, reason, and individualism, it has substituted its own precepts of relative feeling, social construction, and groupism. This substitution has now spread to major cultural institutions such as education, journalism, and the law, where it manifests itself as race and gender politics, advocacy journalism, political correctness, multiculturalism, and the rejection of science and technology.

    These are just some of today’s problems that have been highly influenced by postmodernism:

    Identity politics
    Social Justice Warriors
    Safe spaces (from ideas)
    Cultural marxism
    Equality of outcome
    A belief that everything is a social construction
    The growing believe that objective reality does not exist
    The growing confusion about men and women being different
    Racism being redefined to state that no black person can be a racist
    Standpoint epistemology
    A settled science called, global war...climate change
    The uncivil war

      Dewey wrote My Pedagogic Creed in 1897. It is the basis for our educational system which places emotions into a superior position vis-à-vis reason and laid the groundwork for a good many of your list of problems.

      A brief sampling:

      "I believe that all education proceeds by the participation of the individual in the social consciousness of the race. This process begins unconsciously almost at birth, and is continually shaping the individual's powers, saturating his consciousness, forming his habits, training his ideas, and arousing his feelings and emotions..."

      "...I believe that the child should be stimulated and controlled in his work through the life of the community..."

      "...I believe that we violate the child's nature and render difficult the best ethical results, by introducing the child too abruptly to a number of special studies, of reading, writing, geography, etc., out of relation to this social life..."
