    A zueira culture tá zuando nossa cultura

    "Lazy cynicism has replaced thoughtful conviction as the mark of an educated worldview. Indeed, cynicism saturates popular culture, and it has afflicted contemporary art by way of postmodernism and irony."

    Sempre fui adepto da zueira culture, mas sempre fiquei com uma pulga atrás da orelha (uma bem grande) sobre o alcance da ironia. Uma massa global de gente irônica quer dizer duas coisas: ou o povo tá muito antenado pra saber manejar o arrojado cajado da ironia ou o povo tá usando a ironia pra mascarar a total falta de conhecimento sobre as coisas.

    “‘Anyone with the heretical gall to ask an ironist what he actually stands for ends up looking like an hysteric or a prig. And herein lies the oppressiveness of institutionalized irony, the too-successful rebel: the ability to interdict the question without attending to its subject is, when exercised, tyranny. It [uses] the very tool that exposed its enemy to insulate itself.’”

    O texto do Matt Ashby e da Brendan Carroll publicado no Salon é uma resposta muito bem construída sobre a crítica à ironia como chiste que assola a galere. Ela estabeleceu a zueira culture para rebater a excessiva coxinhice do mundo e se tornou uma espécie de multidão de coxinhas debilóides.

    Destaco mais algumas partes ótimas do texto:

    "At one time, irony served to reveal hypocrisies, but now it simply acknowledges one’s cultural compliance and familiarity with pop trends. The art of irony has lost its vision and its edge. The rebellious posture of the past has been annexed by the very commercialism it sought to defy."

    "Dishonesty is the biggest obstacle to making original, great art. Dishonesty undermines a work’s internal integrity — the only standard by which a work can succeed. If the work becomes a vehicle for one’s ego, personal or political agenda, self-image, desire for fame, adulation, fortune — human as these inclinations may be — the work will be limited accordingly."

    "At one time, irony served to challenge the establishment; now it is the establishment."

    Enfim, o link é obrigatório pra qualquer pessoa que quer pensar a cultura e a crítica como algo além da afetação virtual de gente-que-não-desgruda-da-tela. Menos zueira, mais lucidez, por favor.
