    What makes people quite uncomfortable even apprehensive about modernity & postmodernity, oftentimes

    preferring to be psychologically ensconced in the past, even when the past is no longer irrelevant to the current society?

    It is often hard to accommodate a new way of thinking. If modern (today's) issues does not fit into your normal thinking patterns, you must learn to think anew. Many folks are not adjusted to doing that.
    Also, there is the issue of regression. When something makes a person anxious, they often return to less mature thinking patterns.

    Interesting. If the past is no longer irrelevant to the current society (and frankly, well-adjusted people know that it never was irrelevant) then is post-modernity truly that threatening?
