Why Do They Keep Coming For Comedy?

Totalitarian means an institution – a government, a religion, an ideology – that lays claim to all of civilization ‘in total’. When somebody says “everything is political”, there is no way that’s NOT a totalitarian statement.

#RickyGervais #SuperNature #totalitarianism

Written by ShortFatOtaku

Hi, I'm SFO, and on this channel I make political and philosophical content. There's a lot wrong with the world at the moment, and I don't really have any way to affect political change other than making videos on pertinent topics, so I'll do what I can. My political position is a liberal centrist - I believe that free western capitalist democracy is the best political system we have, and that it's under attack from all sides, from SJWs, from religious extremism, from radical feminism, from identitarianism, from both progressivism and regressivism, from extremism from both ends of the political spectrum. If you're expecting me to either be alt-right, or side with social justice, you're going to be very disappointed.

  1. Im kinda small and slightly chubby and without a beard and also not really big on the arms.

    If you somebody for some reason what so ever, would call me a dwarf disgrace.

    I would be laughing hard, cause i never heard that and cause its really funny

  2. Another thing to note, these people always project their own outlooks onto others, when they accuse someone of using comedy as a means of trogan horsing propoganda and genuine hatred. It is because they themselves likely utilize this tactic.

  3. I love how he still managed to confuse precedent and lie just like he conflates comedy and violence. This is someone who can't be trusted because they put politics and idealism over consistent, rational and logical thinking.

  4. A great point.
    Making fun of anyone de-legitimizes them. It tends to internally upset people and make them reevaluate their position. The bigger the flaws, the easier it is to make fun of them. And to some point if you get popular enough figureheads like Dankula, who pull in a nice audience, you can then lure them in. "Hey, did you catch the new Mad Lads episode?" Because the more accessible the material the more likely they are to watch it.

  5. All throughout history, the people that hated comedy the most have always been dictators. Specifically, they hated comedy aimed at them and have always forbade anybody from making fun of them. Whats the old saying? "To know who rules over you, just find the people you are not allowed to make fun of."

  6. Pretty much all totalitarian societies/movements target comedy first. Since they view everything as political, they view comedy as sermons to propagate ideology, which they often take literally as a direct undermining even if it's a very minor joke at their expense

  7. Patrice O’Neal once explained “good comedy… half of the people should be laughing and the other half horrified”

    This falls under the umbrella of comedic integrity, as explained in monologue by Colin Quinn in the final episode of Tough Crowd: “the ability to critique all the hypocrisies in society, yes, but also to be real enough to see you’re as guilty as everybody else in the game”

    Also some people loathe the sound of laughter 🧐

  8. who took down the christian church in the west? cynical, snide atheists who made a joke out of the church to the point where christians blush just admitting their beliefs. since the snyde cynical atheists are now always on their heels, they wont be able to do the same to the progressive church without risk of their careers.

  9. Comedy has to understand the world as it is and then subvert it. People that want you to doublethink are mad at comedy because it demands you understand 2+2=4 so you can make a joke about 2+2=5. Comedy clashs with activism constant gaslighting.

  10. I take great issue with their bellyaching about the potential harms words and other actions can cause, and yet they will say and do things that can cause harm, just to their approved list of demographics they can harm. Specifically, white people.
    If endless criticism is a harm, then they're fully aware they're doing harm to people, but they don't care.
    If they don't care, neither should you.

  11. Jumping straight into the debate streamar drama lifestyle thingy I see? Edgy boy dares to have opion, but still feel ju have to wax on about some obscyre bullshit to justify yourself. Remove 20÷ smugness from your tone and I might acutally listen next time.
