Mindless, unbending tradition - repressive, stultifiying.

Relentless frenetic innovation - exhausting, dehumanizing.

Postmodernism? I haven't seen it as recognizing pluralism, so much as exploiting it. Inauthenticity rampant. Rarely if ever does an "ism" attain a monopoly on truth and beauty -- except perhaps for a time in the eyes of its own acolytes.
