Recently I’ve been thinking about irony and authenticity. The series of hipster-hatred was an introduction to the topic, because I feel like irony is easier to deal with than authenticity. While I look forward to writing more on the subject, I just discovered this site: You Are Not So Smart: A Celebration of Self-Delusion.
It covers a lot of the problems with thought that I alluded to earlier, particularly problems I find intriguing like introspection, memory and eye-witness problems, and problems that plague regulators. Seriously good stuff.
