Which Foundational Story?
Updated: Jul 20, 2019
Why is it that those who accuse others of intolerance are so intolerant? Or to put it another way, why are those who accuse others of being absolutist are themselves absolutists? This post-everything world is at times so crazy it can be so absurd. When you have no ground under your feet, then anything goes, and nothing is meaningful or lasting. However, the truth is that there is no such thing as a society without a foundation's story. Even the claim that there is no metanarrative is undergirded by a story that says there is no metanarrative. We all live in and out of a particular story and to pretend that this in is not so is utter foolishness. The real question is, upon which metanarrative am I building my life?
