The premise of this thought experiment is to completely suspend any sense of absurdity and revulsion, and to treat Liberalism in its modern consumerist and postmodern form as if it was a full and whole religious phenomenon, and to examine it as such. This is a departure from the Traditionalist analysis of modernity because I will argue that instead of a total desacralization of the world, the metaphysical mutation that defines the core of the modern west is actually a radical implosion of the whole Sacred/Profane polarity that confines this entire polarity completely within the container of the Individual, just as the extreme development along a monotheistic creationist line finally concentrates the whole of the sacred (but not the profane) within God.
Liberal Consumerism is a diseased form of Monotheism that replaced God with the Individual. The mystical or spiritual forms of this religion (The New Age) exalt and glorify the central metaphysics, just as the main esoteric forms of the other great Monotheisms glorify God.
So when we see the open devotees of this abomination, Men who have erected a temple over the foulest and most polluted of all sewers, how shall we call them?
