When business advice literature warmly embraces chaos, celebrates the collapsing of high and low, and heralds the demolition of intellectual order as a profit-maximizing opportunity, it’s time to dust off those much vilified meta-narratives.

Yes, postmodernism is the cultural logic of late capitalism.

Thomas Frank and Matt Weiland, Commodify Your Dissent, 14-15.
