Irony Cynicism and The Lunacy of The Italian Media Power


Contemporary mass cynicism can be linked with two different roots: one is the failure of the utopian ideologies of the past century. The second, more powerful, is the perception of irreversibility and incontrovertibility of the exploitation of labor, competition, and war. Contemporary mass cynicism is a consequence of the dissolution of social solidarity. Neoliberal deregulation, particularly globalization and precarization of the labor market, have imposed competition as the general inescapable mode of relationship among social actors. Workers, once upon a time united by a link of social solidarity and common political hope, are now obliged to think in cynical terms: survival of the fittest.
