What about Socratic irony?

Overcoming Bias : Against Irony. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Irony has been around for a long time. I think what is being talked about here is the currently fashionable in-crowd faux irony.

  1. Somebody whose name escapes me wrote a book, Against Irony perhaps 20 years ago. I think that it is fine to be against cheap irony, mocking what everyone at your school mocks. But to be against irony in general is like repealing the laws against counterfeiting.
