The question remains: who will be the winner and who will be defeated? After all, this phrase can be interpreted in two ways, and it is not clear who the author wanted to tell us about the victory. Maybe he meant the eternity of this confrontation? My answer is in addition to the first
For the sake of a catchphrase ... and some intellectual and conceptual superiority :)
What makes this expression related to slang, as for me.
I'll be brief: fish oil is proven to be useful , postmodernism - selectively :)
First of all, postmodernism itself is perceived as an absurd phenomenon. And above all, an attempt to classify the state of the era as postmodern is confusion, nonsense. This is a classic conclusion drawn by readers of postmodern theorists. This has happened since the time of Lyotard, when any meta-story (for example, religion and God himself, ideology, global ethics) has no trust, since in any case it discredits itself in a certain area of its own narrative, and therefore has no final meaning, that is absurd.
Secondly, the absurdity here makes a reference to itself, since: postmodernism = absurdity. Absurdity cannot be defeated, it has no black and white, since it is "on both sides". When the absurd refers to itself in an attempt to actualize itself somehow, a comic effect occurs. Something like "the duck is black because gladiolus". In addition, comicism arises due to the impossibility of comparing two meanings that belong to different semantic arrays.
I doubt that fish oil has ever won anything. Moreover, there is no need to win. In this, it seems to me, the author of the dictum and sees the comic and at the same time the final message of the inscription: the statement tells the meaning (that is, meaninglessness) and, at the same time, shows how it works. Double entanglement + meaninglessness is the best example of the breath of the postmodern era, in the author's opinion, it seems to me.
1) Fish oil is an effective antidepressant.
2) A. Solzhenitsyn assessed postmodernism as a "dangerous cultural phenomenon" that "dismantled the modern world to the state of a cemetery, where there is nothing alive, but any thing or idea emits a smell of decay"
I'll try to make it out using the example of graffiti uploaded on the cover.
Firstly, the object itself is a pretty shabby wall that has seen better times (and literally - another system, another era!), which are in potholes we can observe a strange smiling face, as well as irrefutable proof of the phrase "time spares no one."
Secondly, let's turn to the phrase itself, or rather, decompose it into lexemes:
So , "fish fat". What is this? Bypassing its medical and nutritional properties (leaving a link for the curious reader), let's just say that this wonderful substance was crammed into the younger generation throughout the Soviet and post-Soviet space, which marks the Russian "senseless and merciless".
For now, let's leave the "win", and immediately move on to postmodernism. Everyone knows that on the territory of Russia this term is associated with the dubious works and books of Pelevin (which, in principle, are not bad). What does this word inscribed on these tables of modern times mean? In my opinion, it capaciously expresses in itself all of modernity, with all its ambiguous phenomena, such as life on the Internet, jokes for 300 and the dominance of hashtags (however, at the time of this graffiti, obviously, hashtags had not yet been defeated by the valiant fish oil - I sincerely hope that someone will finish drawing a sharp).
Now, having clearly explained all the concepts, it is quite obvious that the inscription is nothing more than the utopian desire of Soviet reality to triumph over the absurdity of modernity, in which everything is going upside down; in communism, as you know, everything is always simple and clear.
This is how everything is simple and clear.
P.S. There is some chance that this means absolutely nothing.
