Default Non agency nihilism

Existential nihilism cannot be right because it assumes agency
Nihilism cannot be right because from a viewpoint a person has "meaning" (this may not be from the person's point of view)

There needs to be another multi-syballic word prefacing "nihilism" to hit the mark with this philosophy, I propose Non-agency nihilism, or NAN for short.

Here is the advertisement;

"Ever feel like a cog in a wheel? Like everything you do does not matter, yet every action you take reinforces your position in the wheel? Forever trapped in the machinations of society"

"Then Non-agency nihilism or NAN is for you!"

"Want to know more? If you call 555-555 and pay only $99.99 we will send you a colourful brochure and a NAN t-shirt!"

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas
-George Bernard Shaw
