Thank you Collins Nnadozie for giving me the word I was looking for. Manufactured. This is the second article I’ve read in this vein and they don’t seem dark or cynical at all. Just manufactured. The author does not seem to know very much about that which he speaks besides the parts about looking for lays. Faux cynical ideas cobbled together. Inauthentic, except for the shallowness. The vapidity feels real. For depth of dark thoughts and cynicism done well, try Louis C.K.
