Hey James thanks for the response. In this comment I will try to uphold the “sceptic” title you described me as. Which is — to some extent — something that I’d consider myself as. So just to be clear, you’re probably right here.

But let me clarify.

First of all, I don’t know what you mean by “disorganized meaning.” It’s a term I’ve never seen or used before.

Secondly, I think you need to look at the sentence in context. “I don’t think” and “I don’t know” are both sentences that I used in the previous paragraph on whether this definition of Postmodernism is actually true. I was paraphrasing Jordan Peterson.

Honestly I thought that was more clear. But it’s now obvious to me that it’s not.

With that being said, I do think that postmodernism teaches that the TOP — the elite class — is a social construct.

It actually makes sense to think this. I agree with the postmodern approach in this sense. In our society, we do tend to think higher of those with money. And I don’t think that is something that we should automatically admire.

But please clarify on what you meant with the sentence:

it implies superstructure is the sole mechanism by which individuals in society make choices about leadership.

I appreciate the comment.

All the best.
