You’re right there, Anthar.

But satire is much more than just a source of humor, it’s one of the oldest forms of political protest, and effective, angling in on the issues in a way more people can absorb:

“Satire is exaggeration and distortion to make a point.”


“A satirist is a man profoundly revolted
by the society in which he lives.
His rage takes the form of wit, ridicule, mockery.”


Thanks for reading, friend.
