The vulgar evolutionism of Integral theory is obviously appealing to some marginalized and stupid people today, sort of how the Nazi movement offered both a career opportunity and a place on the imagined cutting edge of humanity for the marginalized and stupid in Germany after WW I.
I almost regretted pointing this out to one of the more prominent dimwits in the Transintegral Scholars Group a while back. (Why telling a painful truth to someone who obviously can’t handle the the truth?) Then someone showed me a particularly repugnant piece by an even more prominent idiot, Jeff Salzman. This is what this “integralist, evolutionary, and public commentator” has to say about an American attack on Syria:
If we can’t totally justify this move on the moral line of development, I think we can justify it on the aesthetic line. Either way, the move is clear and historically significant: the global modern culture is now powerful and coherent enough to impose rules on conflicts conducted in premodern cultures.
How do you make a parody of that?
