    To many raised in the postmodern Love Power Reading Reviewschool of intellectual thought scoff at the characters portrayed by John Wayne as an overly romantic characterization of a bygone and archaic age. The postmodern perspective is one that rejects the notion of objective truth, and emphasizes the subjective factors that create a contextual truth that is specific to the ideas and experiences of each person. This line of intellectual thought has fostered great skepticism of business interests and tremendous opposition to military actions under the belief that these are artifacts of a power structure that is designed to keep certain classes of people disadvantaged. In response to this perceived evil, many postmodernists advocate for the creation of a large, powerful government with the authority to confiscate and re-distribute resources from those who are successful to those who are not.
