In defense of postmodernism If we read postmodernism as a philosophy that is committed to its own end then we simply misread it as a form of neo modernist kapitalist individualiTy. Postmodernism, for me, lies on a spectrum whereby the initial importance is assertively given over to developing ones subjectivity and subjective experience. But as the beginning resides in the subjectivity of a person, in its actualization, it organically leads to the communist spirit. This is why for me cultural theorist slavoj zizek does not critique postmodernism but simply neo modernism and have still yet to find a valid critique of postmodern thought which I think is extremely valid today.
