3 of 23 people found the following review helpful By Roberta Blum on May 24, 2004
Format: Paperback
Lash invokes an opposition to modernization as a covering theory for witch burning, the attempted extermination of Crow, Cree, Ojibwa, etc. the attempted extermination of Jews and goodness knows what else. At first blush, the idea stimulates the kind of intellectual satisfaction that's supposed to be associated with a covering theory.
Then a possible hazard suggests itself...Modernism, -ization, (moderning, anyone?) is so very vague a term that the designation "opposition to modernism" could seem to apply to, well, darn near anything.
When the intent-to-critique is half-discounted to the intent-to-justify (as seems half-inevitable,) it turns out that what emerges is something like the jingoistic jingle "It's a-ok to slay anyone (or thing) that's in the way." In comparison mere Hitlerism seems positively thoughtful.
Is that where the reflexive part is supposed to come in?
