NY Times Mag on Napoleon Chagnon

This article on Napoleon Chagnon is just fascinating. And not because of Napoleon Chagnon. It is in fact a tale revealing the bitter, psychological savagery of post moderns, whose thought, anchored as it is to nothing but the strange predilections of their own mind, drives their behaviour in contemptible ways. Everyone wants to sit in judgement of everyone else, to hold the moral high ground and yet not one of them holds to the same moral code or could even explain what they believe and why they believe it. The anthropologists approach has evolved like the fashion industry albeit with far less understanding of history and metaphysics. Of all the pseudo-sciences, none has been driven by fads as much as anthropology.  It’s like watching the lifecycle of vermin who care nothing for what came before and nothing for what comes after.
