Ah!!! Them good old pregnant paws!
Post modern is simply an auxymoron ie. past modern.
A label that depends utter-ly on another label which has certainly
been emptied of a lot (if not all) of its meaning and relevance.
In fact given the contradictory kinds of writers labelled modern,
I wonder if it has meaning any more.
