The Rise of the Ironic Class

This is a nice observational article written by a guy named Brett McCracken, whose blog I follow. It’s entitled “The Rise of the Ironic Class” and kicks a couple of the same rocks my last post kicked, but goes a different direction.

“We’re a generation of cultural paranoia, and we don’t want to be out of the loop on anything….We want to be in on the joke, aware of when we are being duped. Irony is like a self-aware announcement that you know what’s going on and will not be duped.”

Here’s the article.
