The Modern World

To help my thinking, here are some notes on "A New Kind of Christian" by Brian McLaren.

This is a summary of what his character Neo says regarding the Modern world.
It was the Era or Age of:

1. Conquest and Control
2. Machine
3. Analysis
4. Secular Science
5. Aspiration to and Confidence in Objectivity
6. Criticism: where you must debunk the others' misperception of what you know to be absolutely and objectively true
7. Modern Nation-State and the Organization
8. Individualism
9. Protestantism and Institutional Religion
10. Consumerism
