When Impressions Supplant Reality: The Reign of Ironic Memes

This helpful article analyzes how our culture’s discourse, due to not understanding certain words and communication styles, has in some sense polluted our ability to discuss and make appeals and persuade. The author helpfully notes how our overuse and misuse of irony have led to irony being, to some degree, useless when making a point. This is also influenced by postmodernism’s inevitable apathy, cynicism, and despair. A great read!
