They aren't coming, they are here.
At the end of an Empire, a phase of self-doubt, self-negation, self-destruction commences, beginning the process of possible rejuvenation - rebirth. But it isn't certain. What does not kill me... makes me stronger. This phase can be terminal.
An extinction event, nature knows all too well.
European man has gone through a few near-extinction events. This may be the last.
A positive attitude urges us to take precedent as an indication of probability.
But, as always, nothing is certain, due to chaos.

Freud undermined the European family.
Wittgenstein undermined language.

Language is the art of philosophy, like colour is the art of painting.
The undermining of language indicates an end of philosophy. this is why nihilists - Americans - speak of an end of philosophy, and of man.
Last Man.
Americanised man is plagued by a psychological - mental - disease.
A dis-ease infecting him for over two thousand years; a disease passed on to him by an external agency - a parasite that has adopted it's survival; and reproductive method.

We are in the age of anti-philosophy.
A degeneration of mind, accompanied by a degeneration of body.
Regression - de-volution, degeneration, desperation, turning to hedonism to find relief.

Undermining the family "liberated" men-children from the father, i.e., paternalism, the only conduit to their past, i.e., nature (sum of all nurturing).
A malaise of lostness; loss of identity, loss of purpose and meaning.
Loss of power.

Dark Age
DEFINITION
the period in western Europe between the fall of the Roman Empire and the high Middle Ages, c. ad 500–1100, during which Germanic tribes swept through Europe and North Africa, often attacking and destroying towns and settlements.
a period of supposed unenlightenment:
"a throwback to the dark ages of computing"
humorous
derogatory
(the dark ages)
an obscure or little-regarded period in the past, especially as characterizing an outdated attitude or practice:
"the judge is living in the dark ages"
archaeology
a period in Greece and the Aegean from the end of the Bronze Age until the beginning of the archaic period. There was no building of palaces and fortresses, and the art of writing was apparently lost.
Transition period between a dying world order/world view and the emergence of a dominating substitute.
We are in such a transitional period.

Dark Ages
(historiography)
This article is about the concept of a Dark Age in western Europe after the Fall of the Western Roman Empire. For Greece after the Bronze Age collapse, see Greek Dark Ages. For other uses, see Dark Ages (disambiguation).

Petrarch, who conceived the idea of a European "Dark Age". From Cycle of Famous Men and Women, Andrea di Bartolo di Bargilla, c. 1450
The "Dark Ages" is a term for the Early Middle Ages, or occasionally the entire Middle Ages, in Western Europe after the fall of the Western Roman Empire that characterises it as marked by economic, intellectual and cultural decline.

The concept of a "Dark Age" originated in the 1330s with the Italian scholar Petrarch, who regarded the post-Roman centuries as "dark" compared to the "light" of classical antiquity. The term employs traditional light-versus-darkness imagery to contrast the era's "darkness" (ignorance and error) with earlier and later periods of "light" (knowledge and understanding). The phrase "Dark Age" itself derives from the Latin saeculum obscurum, originally applied by Caesar Baronius in 1602 when he referred to a tumultuous period in the 10th and 11th centuries. The concept thus came to characterize the entire Middle Ages as a time of intellectual darkness in Europe between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance that became especially popular during the 18th-century Age of Enlightenment. Others, however, have used the term to denote the relative ignorance of historians regarding at least the early part of the Middle Ages, from a scarcity of records.

As the accomplishments of the era came to be better understood in the 19th and the 20th centuries, scholars began restricting the "Dark Ages" appellation to the Early Middle Ages (c. 5th–10th century), and today's scholars also reject its usage for the period. The majority of modern scholars avoid the term altogether due to its negative connotations, finding it misleading and inaccurate. Petrarch's pejorative meaning remains in use, typically in popular culture, which often simplistically views the Middle Ages as a time of violence and backwardness.

SuperOrganisms (meme-based binary-code) follow the same lifecycles as organisms (gene-based 4-code).
The primary difference between previous and current dark periods of degeneration is the technological factor.

Superstition and alternative methods of evaluation truth - paranormal - rise as loss of trust in human knowledge and understanding declines.
All that produced the empire is now doubted and dismissed.

End of the world scenarios multiply, along with messiahs promising relief or salvation.
"End of the world" indicating an actual end of a world-view.
For all those born and nurtured within the certainties of this dying world-view it is, psychologically and practically, an ending.
Darkness refers to the transition from one daylight period to the next.

Religion is metaphysics for mid-wits, and dim-wits.
The "meaning crisis" is the loss of "wisdom" that connect the mediocre mind to its past, i.e., its nature, its traditions, usually accessed through a father-figure, e.g. ideological or abstracted father-figure, god, or biological father-figures connecting children to traditions and heritage.

Loss of this "connectedness" makes mid-wits and dim-wits vulnerable to charlatans that exploit their resentment towards this absence.

Her 60's revolution, for which she is so proud of, this Dionysian unleashed, leads to feminization and the destruction of masculine order - Apollonian.
Who were Dionysian priestesses?
Maenad's....who tore men apart with their teeth and consumed them - wanting to absorb their masculine essence.
Psychological vengeance against Paternalism or any control over female sexual power - and male promiscuity as an adaptive reaction - that makes civilization possible.
This makes Paglia the perfect ironic representative/voice of Dionysian/Sixties rebelliousness, revealing its excesses, and admitting them openly.
She was the first to admit that her generation's excesses lead to its failure to produce their ideal world.
Excesses that are innate to Dionysus and so inevitable when no Apollonian energies remain to limit and control them.

It's also interesting to note that these sixties intellectuals, who have become the spokesmen for reason, contradicting the current madness only after it had transgressed upon sexuality, including Peterson, contradict themselves as they stand to stop the insanity of their own convictions - pushed to their logical limits.
Peterson, and his repeated weeping when exploring the plight of individualism in a world of collectives, fails to see how transgenderism is the apex of individualism and rebellion against conventional sexual identities.
Paglia's rebellious sixties, standing against authoritarianism, is what leads to this meaning crisis, and tis admitted excesses are inevitable.
Sex has triggered in both of them a rational reaction to the madness, in ways race could not and would not have.
In fact both would draw the line on sex/gender, and go no further.
I believe this is mainly because sex is so fundamental to human psyche. A fact Freud exposed and then went further to undermine family structures by projecting his own degeneracy as a universal rule.
Impulse to life, is always retrained by the death impulse, otherwise it becomes intoxicated by its own unrestrained energies.

this is most evident in postmodernism and its sheltering from negative consequences, convincing itself that it is indestructible, and deserving of mitigating forces to protect it form tis own indiscretions.
In the wild, outside human sheltering social systems, there is always a limit to choices, not imposed by a god, but by the consequences, necessitating self-control.

The entire lecture:

It's interesting to note that Paglia identifies as a pagan, unable to see how nature itself - the gods - impose costs on homosexuality and all forms of sexual divergence - and race is an unavoidable part of speciation the ancients did not shy away from but completely embraced as part of natural order.
Also notable is her obsession with pop-culture - which she admits to, as well - equating pop music, in particular, to Dionysian energies.

******
Meaning = connections.
The cosmos is full of meaning.
Nihilists attempt o linguistically disconnect themselves from the cosmos and then declare it all "meaningless."

Nihilists - desperate degenerates - are symptoms of empire decline and the Dark Ages that follow.

******
"The universe doesn't care about your personal narratives...."
This is what fuels degeneracy - desperation, caused by this fact.

Subjectivity is how it retaliates, declaring the world to be its own construct, its own "narrative."
