the mixed blessings of post-modernism (vs. the mixed bag of modernism)

Over the past few years, I've been struck by the advantages and disadvantages of post-modernism's influence on culture and the Church (vs. modernism's mixed bag):

-more interest in story, but also encouraging narcissism;
-more embrace of subjectivity, but also more on relativism;
-more empathy for pain and struggle, while subsidizing over-sensitivity and micro-aggressions (and as a result, thus, intolerance and faux tolerance)
-less Scientism, but less science
-less process, less impressed by measurement, and more organic, but less organized, intentional, and strategic

Thoughts? Others?
