All the other -isms may fade away, but resistentialism (rhymes with existentialism) endures for ever. The word was first used in print in 1948 in New York by one Paul Jennings, and refers to the doctrine that inanimate objects are at constant war against us. Usually described as humorous, for us believers it is no laughing matter!
It is true that Jennings was a humorist, but Einstein played the violin as well you know. In fact I think Jennings was the last great philosopher. Immanuel Kant said that we cannot the thing-in-itself. Resistentialism understands that the main problem is that the damned thing-in-itself certainly does not want to know us!
