I'd argue that each successive generation raised under postmodernism is more off the rails than the last. The first generation, say the one of the 1960s, was only sort of nutty. Their teachers, not all of whom had been indoctrinated, had been raised in an enlightenment (logic- and objective fact-based) world. They may have rejected that, but they were intellectually coasting along under its momentum.
The second generation, say that of the 1990s, was instructed by the people raised in the 1960s, who were still managed by folks from the earlier, enlightenment era. They were taught crazy things, but still not totally insane. The indoctrination in the academies was more complete, but still not universal.
Today's generation is almost completely under the tutelage of postmodern teachers who are under the control of postmodern managers. The result is bat guano-crazy things like the craze over 178+ genders, the anti-scientific support for transgender people, the on-its-face stupid concept of unconscious bias and a complete lack of gratitude for the preceding generations who gave them everything up to and including the smartphones on which they while away the tedious hours.
When we see the mob come after people because they refuse to support today what was yesterday considered wrong (see: Obama's change in support for gay marriage, the demand that we all call Bruce Jenner a woman instead of crazy), we're seeing what happens when the culture is thoroughly postmodern, from top to bottom.
Without even a shred of objective reality or logic, there is nothing to keep us from changing course capriciously, wildly, even violently. Postmodernism carries with it no momentum from accepted thought, only the childish emotions of the mob.
