"The Ironic Cloud"

What would happen if we documented all irony in every world language and culture? According to researchers D. Graham Burnett and Jeff Dolven, the war on terror, and all wars against any (un)known enemy could easily be waged, and won. Words can kill, I know it. You know it. Our government knows it. But soon, everyone will know it, and see it, and quake under the power of our irony.

Isn't irony is too anarchistic (and internally divisive) ever to be shaped into one super-weapon? Or is that just my 20th century idealism talking?

Yes. I think. Irony is always changing...more like sprouting.
