Inner Mode Authenticity Vs. Performative Authenticity
We can see how authenticity might be both in decline (in the inner mode) and in ascendance (in the performative mode) at the same time. The evidence for the decline of one might be a sign of the rise of the other.
Authenticity (in the inner mode) is being lost, as seemingly everyone has become their own unabashed publicist. People laid little stress on the need for introspection and faulted themselves, not for being too caught up in the superficialities of society, but for failing to meet its imperatives of success.
