If abusive power works ironically in this register of manipulation, then the struggle against abusive power works ironically in the other register of recognition. When Lipsitz (1990) argues that ethnic minorities are ‘‘masters of irony in an ironic world’’ (135), he means that they can sometimes recognize the ironic ways in which they are manipulated, not only by their explicit enemies, but also sometimes by those who purport to represent them. While irony as the sign of commitment and ambiguity’s paradox is particularly important for those working in the realm of culture and aesthetics, it is hardly irrelevant for those working in the realm of ‘‘real’’ politics, as is evident in both postwar Viet Nam and the postwar United States.
