Based on translation of Sortir du Nucléaire press release, with our additional commentary in brackets:
Greenwashing for COP21: EDF lies will not save the climate!

At the approach of COP21 French State owned EDF, official sponsor of that event, launched a big publicity campaign to present itself as the “Official Partner of a Low Carbon World”. The campaign glorifies their electricity production, which they allege is 98% CO2 free, due to nuclear power.

To denounce this false advertising, the “Sortir du nucléaire” [Nuclear Exit] Network filed a complaint before the Advertising Ethics Jury and brought a civil liability suit against EDF before the Tribunal de grande instance of Pari [Paris Tribunal-Court]

EDF is not a “Low Carbon World Partner”!

France Abuses State of Emergency: Puts Citizens Under Preventive House Arrest Because They Might Protest During Climate Conference

France Abuses State of Emergency: Puts Citizens Under Preventive House Arrest Because They Might Protest During Climate Conference

by miningawareness

Using the state of emergency declared after Paris terrorist attacks to arrest citizens who they believe might protest during the climate conference clearly violates UN Human Rights criteria which state that measures taken during a state of emergency should be “limited to the extent strictly required by the exigencies of the situation.” Already the announced duration of the state of emergency, into next year, appears excessive. Terrorists attacks are nothing new in France. Given France’s ongoing legacy of abuse in Africa (including uranium mining), along with its participation in the kidnapping of Haiti’s democratically elected president, no one should be surprised that it abuses its own people. Countries who abuse other peoples appear to abuse their own, as well.

One of the most bizarre things about the recently declared French State of Emergency is that the government was willing and able to search the home of an anti-nuclear activist for warning that the new French nuclear reactor could not withstand a suicide airplane attack (kami-kaze), but the French government alleged that a state of emergency was required to search the homes of terrorists.

France Puts 24 Climate Activists Under House Arrest Ahead of COP21
‘A gross abuse of power that risks turning the summit into a farce’ Published on Saturday, November 28, 2015, by Common Dreams staff
French police have placed 24 activists under ‘house arrest’ ahead of the major UN climate warming COP21 talks starting near Paris next week.
The French interior ministry said Friday the government was trying to prevent the activists from demonstrating ahead of the COP21 conference, but their lawyers and Amnesty International accused the government of abusing the ‘state of emergency’ put into effect after the Paris attacks.
Three of those arrested are accused of belonging to the “radical opposition movement”, according to Agence France Presse.
“They are banned from leaving their home town in western France without special police permission, they must report to a local police station three times a day and remain at their homes between 8:00 pm and 6:00 am until December 12, the day after the talks are due to end.”
The interior ministry says the three individuals have caused “serious disturbances to public order” in the past.
Author and climate change activist, Naomi Klein, accused the French authorities of “a gross abuse of power that risks turning the summit into a farce”.
“Climate summits are not photo opportunities to boost the popularity of politicians. Given the stakes of the climate crisis, they are by their nature highly contested. That is democracy, messy as it may be. The French government, under cover of anti-terrorism laws, seems to be trying to avoid this, shamefully banning peaceful demonstrations and using emergency powers to pre-emptively detain key activists,” Klein told the Guardian.
The activists’ lawyer, Marie Dose, said the state of emergency was being “misused” in their cases. “This is an attack on the right to demonstrate,” she said.
In the wake of the attacks in Paris that killed 130 people on November 13, the government banned all public demonstrations linked to COP21.
Stephan Oberreit, head of Amnesty International France, said the measures taken by the government were “disproportionate”.
“The systematic banning of all meetings linked to COP21 deprives critical voices of an essential outlet to express themselves,” he said in a statement. “Amnesty International believes that banning any gatherings related to the COP21 of Nov. 28 to 30, appears to be a disproportionate interference with the right to demonstrate on this subject, since the date of the rallies is closely related to the holding of the COP21.”
France’s Human Rights League (LDH) on Thursday condemned the decision to place Joel Domenjoud, a member of the legal team for the coalition of protest groups, under house arrest.
Domenjoud, a legal activist, told the Guardian that he had been served with a restraining order wrongly describing him as a “principal leader of the ultra-left movement” just hours after a judge refused to hear an appeal against the ban on the climate demo that he had petitioned for.
“I wasn’t there when they came to my house but my neighbor called me to say ‘What’s wrong? The stairs are full of cops from the first to the third floor!’” he said.
Domenjoud says he was then followed by several undercover officers, before returning home, where he was served with the restraining notice.
“I feel angry about it because I think they made a big mistake,” Domenjoud added. “They weren’t looking for people like us activists – or if they were, it shows that they can target people for no reason at all and our civil liberties are in danger.” CC-BY-SA-3.0 http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/11/28/france-puts-24-climate-activists-under-house-arrest-ahead-cop21 (Emphasis added)

T.A.T.A.L. – Toxic At The Atomic Level; Man Made Heavy Metal Radioactive Poisons Can Be Detected And Measured Inside All Life Forms On Planet Earth; Plants, Animals, Insects, And Humans

Thanks go to Nick at Enenews for coming up with the term TATAL (toxic at the atomic level), as it relates to the invisible heavy metal poisons pouring out of Fukushima in a never ending river of death, starting in 3/11, and continuing until present day. Of course, if all you have watched or listened to since 3/11 is the mass media, you have missed this news, because along with a bunch of other stories, they ignore and deny things like this, because it might hurt their major advertisers and/or make them look bad.

Steven Starr is the Director of the Clinical Laboratory Science Program at the University of Missouri and is an Associate member of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation and has been published by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. His writings appear on the websites of PSR, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology Center for Arms Control, Energy and Environmental Studies, Scientists for Global Responsibility, and the International Network of Scientists Against Proliferation. Since 2007, he has worked with the governments of Switzerland, Chile, and New Zealand, in support of their efforts at the United Nations to eliminate thousands of high-alert, launch-ready nuclear weapons.
Mr. Starr is also an expert on the environmental consequences of nuclear war, and in 2011, he made an address to the U.N. General Assembly describing the dangers that nuclear weapons and nuclear war poses to all nations and peoples.

The Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee chairman Anne McIntosh described the scale of the contamination in the food chain as “breathtaking” and warned that restoring consumer confidence would take time and money.

The Government has a role to secure the correct balance between affordable food prices and effective regulations that require transparency and quality.

The consumer cannot be left to face a Catch 22 where they can either pay for food that complies with the highest standards of traceability, labelling and testing or accept that they cannot trust the provenance and composition of the foods they eat…….So thats all right then? http://www.itv.com/news/topic/food-st…

BLUEFIN TUNA. A RECENT ARTICLE: Every bluefin tuna tested in the waters off California has shown to be contaminated with radiation that originated in Fukushima. Every single one.
Over a year ago, in May of 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported on a Stanford University study. Daniel Madigan, a marine ecologist who led the study, was quoted as saying, “The tuna packaged it up (the radiation) and brought it across the world’s largest ocean. We were definitely surprised to see it at all and even more surprised to see it in every one we measured.”
Another member of the study group, Marine biologist Nicholas Fisher at Stony Brook University in New York State reported, “We found that absolutely every one of them had comparable concentrations of cesium 134 and cesium 137.”
That was over a year ago. The fish that were tested had relatively little exposure to the radioactive waste being dumped into the ocean following the nuclear melt-through that occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in March of 2011. Since that time, the flow of radioactive contaminants dumping into the ocean has continued unabated. Fish arriving at this juncture have been swimming in contaminants for all of their lives.
Radioactive cesium doesn’t sink to the sea floor, so fish swim through it and ingest it through their gills or by eating organisms that have already ingested it. It is a compound that does occur naturally in nature, however, the levels of cesium found in the tuna in 2012 had levels 3 percent higher than is usual. Measurements for this year haven’t been made available, or at least none that I have been able to find. I went looking for the effects of ingesting cesium. This is what I found:
When contact with radioactive cesium occurs, which is highly unlikely, a person can experience cell damage due to radiation of the cesium particles. Due to this, effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and bleeding may occur. When the exposure lasts a long time, people may even lose consciousness. Coma or even death may then follow. How serious the effects are depends upon the resistance of individual persons and the duration of exposure and the concentration a person is exposed to.
The half life of cesium 134 is 2.0652 years. For cesium 137, the half life is 30.17 years.
The Fukushima disaster is an ongoing battle with no signs that humans are gaining the upper hand. The only good news to come out of Japan has later been proven to be false and was nothing more than attempts by Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) to mislead the public and lull them into a sense of security while the company searched vainly for ways to contain the accident. This incident makes Three Mile Island and Chernobyl pale in comparison. Those were nuclear meltdowns. A nuclear melt-through poses a much more serious problem and is one that modern technology doesn’t have the tools to address. Two and a half years later and the contaminants are still flowing into the ocean and will continue to for the foreseeable future.
As for me, fish and seafood are now off the menu.

Thanksgiving As Annual Day Of Gratitude, Or As National Day Of Mourning?

Celebrate Thanksgiving As Annual Day Of Gratitude, Or As National Day Of Mourning?
The fourth Thursday In November is now known as Thanksgiving, but it did not become that, until 1941. How did it get to the point of becoming a national holiday, and what is the larger historical context?

Imagine you are looking at a marriage of two very unequal partners who live together in the same ‘house’, which is the US, as a nation. The marriage was forced, and arranged by the man who had the guns, superior power, and the religion, plus a very firm set of beliefs about money, and God. The woman was forced to submit, had no choice in the matter, but did not believe anything that the man did, Her views were ignored, denied, despised and suppressed by the man, often brutally and with violence.

The children were taught by the man, not the woman. She was shoved off into a back small room, kept there in the dark, not allowed to partake in the man’s political, religious, educational and other social activities, because her customs, beliefs, and way of looking at the world were considered worthless and even worthy of death by the man.

The marriage was an unhappy one, but the children grew up believing that the man had the whole story, and his version of ‘his-story’ was taught via the official national holidays, in the schools and colleges. His story was the only one being taught, as the ONLY and RIGHT version of history. Her-story was ignored, denied and suppressed as being worthless.

Which version of history is correct and true? How will this marriage turn out in the long run.

His-story?
Her-story?

Thanksgiving – celebrating the day Americans fed undocumented illegal aliens from Europe. 

THANKSGIVING DAY STORIES FROM THE AMERICAN INDIAN PERSPECTIVE

Instead of celebrating Thanksgiving, some people are now protesting this ‘holiday’, via a National Day of Mourning. Why are they doing this?

Genocide In America; 19 To 100 Million Native American’ Indians Exterminated By Illegal Immigrant ‘Settlers’, After Living On Continent For 200,000 Years In Sustainable Way

“Thanksgiving”: “The untold genocide of the Native Americans”

The real story behind Thanksgiving is nothing to be thankful about. Watch and find out what really happened in the New World when the pilgrims and natives met in 1620.
This is what a map of N. America would have looked like before ‘settlers’ arrived. It was inhabited coast to coast, by a nation full of indigenous American Indians, who did not believe in Capitalism, ownership, or private for profit corporations, much less a separate God that could only be accessed after death.

During and after the forced occupation and genocide, this largely peaceful, sustainable nation full of millions of American Indians with a very rich and diverse culture, language, arts, traditions and customs was eliminated. In it’s place, the occupation has installed a very unsustainable failing system of Capitalism, private ownership of all resources via greed and selfishness, many sicknesses and diseases, a manifest destiny religion system and a toxic environment that is getting worse and more toxic with each passing generation. 

THANKSGIVING DAY STORY FROM THE “SETTLERS” PERSPECTIVE

Many people celebrate it as a day of giving thanks for all of life’s blessings, including family and as a way of bringing everyone together in a celebration.
The Real Story Of Thanksgiving (from the ‘settlers’ point of view)
“The story of Thanksgiving, with its costumed Pilgrims, turkeys and pumpkin pie, zigzags through American history with some surprising twists. At the iconic Thanksgiving feast of 1621– no pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce was served, and that event was wiped from the history books for 200 years! In the 19th Century, some southern states thought Thanksgiving was an abolitionist plot and refused to celebrate it. Thanksgiving didn’t become an annual national holiday until World War II! What started as a somber Puritan day of prayer is now about football and food. How did we get there?”

THANKSGIVING DAY HAS THE SAME ROOTS AND BELIEF SYSTEM AS COLUMBUS DAY, WHICH IS BASED ON TOTAL MYTH, NO FACTS OR REALITY

Others are celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day, instead of celebrating the occupation and forced takeover of a civilized nation that is celebrated as Columbus Day. 

Seattle Chooses Indigenous Peoples’ Day Instead Of Columbus Day
The second Monday of October has long been recognized as Columbus Day, but in Seattle, it will now be known as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. This resolution stems from efforts that began in the 1970s by members of the American Indian Movement; efforts continued today by the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians. Indigenous Peoples’ Day celebrates the many native tribes of the United States, and recognizes the fact that Columbus was not a hero to the native people, whom he sought to enslave upon his arrival here. 
Watch the video above to find out what Indigenous Peoples’ Day means to the Native people of the Pacific Northwest.

WHAT IS THE NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING?

Wikipedia; “According to a speech by Moonanum James, Co-Leader of UNAINE, at the 29th National Day of Mourning, November 26, 1998:[6]

Some ask us: Will you ever stop protesting? Some day we will stop protesting:

We will stop protesting when the merchants of Plymouth are no longer making millions of dollars off the blood of our slaughtered ancestors. We will stop protesting when we can act as sovereign nations on our own land without the interference of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and what Sitting Bull called the “favorite ration chiefs”. 

When corporations stop polluting our mother, the earth. When racism has been eradicated. When the oppression of Two-Spirited people is a thing of the past. We will stop protesting when homeless people have homes and no child goes to bed hungry. When police brutality no longer exists in communities of color. We will stop protesting when Leonard Peltier and Mumia Abu-Jamal and the Puerto Ricanindependentistas and all the political prisoners are free. Until then, the struggle will continue.

SUMMARY

Whichever ‘story’ you believe in, depends on the culture you grew up in. As an American Indian, your story is one of sorrow, loss and suffering, plus forced relocation and constant never ending ‘takings’ by huge corporations, who never seem to get enough, even after what is left of the great American Indian nation was relocated to supposedly worthless reservation lands.

When will Americans wake up to the genocide and at least apologize for what their ancestors have done to the original inhabitants and ‘first nation’ peoples? Japanese Americans were locked up in internment camps during WWII without trial, court or jury, while having all of their possessions taken away. Congress has since apologized and paid a small financial compensation to the Japanese, but nothing has been said for or about anyone else subjected to much worse treatment and conditions.
The slaves of years gone by were promised forty acres and/or a mule, but that promise was never kept. As these black slaves were freed, they got nothing, after having built up the huge wealth of the United States.
Irish slaves and Chinese slaves were also imported in various ways. Many Chinese were discriminated against and not allowed to come back to the US, if they went back to China to visit relatives via the Chinese Exclusion Act, after the railroads were completed, because they were considered an existential threat.
Women in America were considered property and could not own property or vote until fairly recently. It is easy for the victors to rewrite history and ‘forget’ the darkness that happens in the violent conquest and forced occupation of a country, but the victims of that conquest and genocide tend to not forget. Maybe it is time for discussing this issue on the national media, bringing attention to it, and then going through a reconciliation process, with possible reparations.

American Indians have suffered and more died than even more than the black slaves did, but also got nothing but more suffering and broken treaties from the original ‘discovery’ of America, all the way to today.

Bottom line, America was and still is being built on military conquest, violence, death, genocide, slavery, suffering and forced labor, and still is, via Communist China and Communist Vietnam today. Will this suffering ever end? The secret global American empire is being led by the 1 percent, in combination with the military industrial complex and it’s 1,000 foreign military bases.

To truly heal, this mortal wound must also be operated on and healed. A country cannot live in a sustainable manner and devote most of it’s energy to constant never ending war plus violence and occupation.

Breitbart, Fox News And Mass Media Analyzed; What Is Their Journalistic Ethic, Purpose, Hidden Agenda, Motivation And Mission?

Breitbart, Fox News And Mass Media Analyzed; What Is Their Journalistic Ethic, Purpose, Hidden Agenda, Motivation And Mission?
Speaking of mass media in general, what is their journalistic ethic, purpose, agenda, motivation and/or mission? Further than that, what is their vision and where are they helping humanity to go to 100 years from now, when all of the minutia and political theatre/controversy has been forgotten? Do any of them cover news that relates to seven future generations and not doing them harm for example. Why is that not even on the radar screen?

This article dives into journalistic ethics and where it can be found, specifically covering Breitbart News, Fox News and mass media in general. Of course, as with anything on AGRP, this is a sarcastic look at the issue, and the reader must decide if any of it is true, all of it is true, or none of it is true at all.  

JOURNALISTIC ETHICS DEFINED

While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of—truthfulness, accuracyobjectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability—as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public.[1][2][3][4] Like many broader ethical systems, journalism ethics include the principle of “limitation of harm.” This often involves the withholding of certain details from reports such as the names of minor children, crime victims’ names or information not materially related to particular news reports release of which might, for example, harm someone’s reputation.[5][6]

MSNBC GIVES A SHORT HISTORY OF BREITBART

The following video gives a basic history of Breitbart, and talks about how he started Huffington Post and then went out on his own, to ‘defend the Tea Party’, with many Conservative websites and news organizations. 

MSNBC fails in this Breitbart fluff report

“This is a fluff piece by MSNBC on Andrew Breitbart from 12:34pm 7/22/10 however even in a fluff piece like this the truth should be the prevalent takeaway, which it is not in this report. MSNBC failed to say that the ACORN controversy was falsely created by Breitbart which included edited video. 
MSNBC failed to report the Sherrod case was centered on similarly Breitbart edited video. MSNBC even implies there was an ACORN fraud that Breitbart exposed. Allegations of ACORN fraud have been debunked as the California Attorney General found no criminal action on behalf of ACORN agents. 
Breitbart perpetrated this Sherrod fraud on purpose in order to further his own career and create controversy. The Sherrod case happened as President Obama signed the Financial Reform bill. So a distraction from the greatest reform of the banking industry since the 1930s is EXACTLY what the GOP (re-branded as Teaparty) and Teabaggers were looking for. 
The takeaway from this whole Andrew Breitbart garbage is that the videos were nothing more than a reinforcement that ACORN and Shirley Sherrod were doing exactly what they should be doing in an ethical manner for the benefit of society. Thank you Andrew Breitbart for showing thinking people that they are thinking correctly and clearly when they think you are wrong.”

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF NEWS? 

News is generally designed to INFORM people and to discover the truth of a particular subject through investigative reporting. News media have a responsibility to seek out the truth, and to present both sides of a particular issue. 
Although Breitbart does a strange form of investigative journalism, what is the target and motive behind it? Is this organization dedicated to discovering truth, or to generate publicity for itself, while destroying a chosen target, with some kind of deeper, darker motivation? Is Breitbart news protecting seven future generations without causing harm, or is it doing something else?

Climategate; Results of Investigations And Review Of Evidence Presented, Waging Climate Court Battle, Brave Youth Sue To Force Action On Global Warming
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2015/02/climategate-is-real.html

When young people have to sue in court to protect seven future generations because the news media and politicians plus corporations are not doing their job in that way, something is VERY wrong and the issue is systemic, not just inside one or another news organization. 

WHO CONTROLS AND PAYS FOR BREITBART NEWS BEHIND THE SCENES, AND WHO PAYS FOR THE NEWS IN MASS MEDA?

Ethics? Breitbart Accepting Money From Donald Trump To Provide Good Trump Coverage?
Journalism in general is supposed to have high ethics, be impartial, neutral, show both sides, and not be swayed by financial, corporate or political interests. Does Fox News and Breitbart News hold to this ethical principle? What is the source of their funding? According to the above video news, Donald Trump supports Breitbart news financially in a pay to play way, and also helps to determine the news ‘coverage’. Are there other examples of how this pay to play type of arrangement works? Well, it turns out that this is much more common than people believe.

Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism, Just One Example Of How Corporations Control The Mass Media And Determine What You Think About Or Believe; via A Green Road
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/05/outfoxed-rupert-murdochs-war-on.html

Click on the article link above to find out just how bad the war on TRUE journalism has gotten.. Fox news is not a news organization, but rather a political organization that hires politicians as ‘experts’ or ‘consultants’ and then grooms/pays them to run for President. Fox also ‘selects’ the candidates, in a very unique method that has nothing to do with elections and freedom of choice.

The Bitchy Pundit If you’re not familiar with David Brock, he used to be part of the right wing propaganda pushing media until he realized how disgusting they were. That’s when he founded Media Matters to watch his former peers. 
In the case of both Fox News And Breitbart News, both sides are not shown equally. Corporations pay to play in these supposed ‘news’ organizations and in the larger mass media, which is a huge problem, because then the truth never comes out.
Is it any wonder given that Fox is not a news organization, that in polls conducted of a typical audience member, Fox watchers were among the most ill informed and/or misinformed members of society.

Wouldn’t that lead to anyone with common sense to think that the object of Fox and Breitbart News organizations is not to inform people or to tell them the truth, but to make them fearful and to destroy anyone opposed to their particular extreme right wing political viewpoint, while promoting the huge corporations funding things behind the scenes in secret, much like the old white man pulling the strings behind a curtain, in a famous movie.

Is it possible that the news media is not as free as it seems at first glance and appearance? What if there is programming of the public going on? What if there is a ‘hidden’ censorship? What if the mass media is not really free?

Fake Mass Media News; The Many Ways The Viewing Public Is ‘Programmed’ And TV Programming Is Censored; via @AGreenRoad
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/04/fake-news-one-of-many-ways-programming.html

There is a huge conspiracy going on in open public sight, but it is not the conspiracies being promoted by Fox, Breitbart, or the mass media in general. Has anyone noticed, that on Fox, Breitbart, and the mass media in general, the target of their ‘hit’ pieces are never a huge corporate interest? Hmmmm.. Could there by some conspiracy hidden in that closet?
In a much larger sense, just about all mass media is biased and corrupted, because it has been married to huge corporate interests, so no mass media out can publish anything that hurts the hands which feed them, such as the nuclear industry, the carbon industry or any of the other huge monopolies that drive and control the agenda on mass media.

BREITBART ACCUSED OF SENSATIONALIZED FICTION, MANY MAIN STREAM MEDIA OUTLETS BAMBOOZLED BY IT AND PUBLISHED FICTION AS TRUTH; WHO IS BREITBART AS A PERSON? BREITBART CONFESSES!!!!!!

Investigative reporting is all about revealing corruption, but when the target is always on ‘social’ organizations that are helping communities and society in general, and never on huge corporations, what is the agenda and motivation behind this? 
“In this shocking, unedited video, Andrew Breitbart announces to an audience that he was on crack cocaine during the birth of his children, is in rehab, has sexual problems, is a narcissist and in the end confesses, “I’m kind of a fraud.””
Falsely asserted O’Keefe ‘dressed as pimp’ while ‘asking for, getting help for illegal activities’; Still stands behind fabricated claim. Media Matters details mainstream outlets that took bait, fell for Breitbart/O’Keefe’s sensationalized fiction…More evidence has been published today at Media Matters highlighting the effectiveness of that lie, and how media outlets from one side of the country to the other — not just the New York Times as we’ve shown — were utterly bamboozled and played for chumps by Breitbart and O’Keefe’s phony scheme. Furthermore, when confronted with the lies — yes, lies — in his column, while on the air live last night, Breitbart chose to do what he always does…lie about them…

DOES BREITBART NEWS ENGAGE IN CLIMATE CHANGE DENIALISM?

Journalism is all about discovering and revealing the truth, but when the opposite happens, where does that lead humanity? When a lie becomes truth and the agenda is to protect huge corporate interests so that they can continue to pollute and poison both the environment and harm people, what are the ethics involved in that and where does it ultimately take humanity, other than to extinction?

Debunked: CNN’s Never Ending Story Of Glacier Retreat – Breitbart
http://hoax.trendolizer.com/2015/04/debunked-cnns-never-ending-story-of-glacier-retreat—breitbart.html

In the above story it sure looks like Breitbart accuses CNN of publishing ‘fake’ stories about glaciers retreating. In other words, Breitbart is one of those media outlets that denies global warming exists.

To pull of this global warming denialism, they have to manufacture fake evidence, because the reality is, global warming exists and the glaciers are melting all around the world.

Dr. Peter Phillips – Deliberate Propaganda, Project Censorship, Mass Media ‘Programming’ And Takeover Of Levers Of Power
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2015/08/dr-peter-phillips-deliberate-propaganda.html

Propaganda consists of repeating a lie over and over and over and over until people believe it. The bigger the lie, the easier it is for people to believe it, because the propagandist just has to say there is a huge conspiracy and accuse the truth tellers of manufacturing lies. If global warming denialism is part of a grand deception orchestrated by dirty carbon and nuclear industry monopolies using their power to influence the mass media and front organizations, what is the truth?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2015/01/glaciers-receding-150-cubic-miles-of.html

Of course, behind the scenes, huge corporate interests are driving the agenda and telling the ‘stories’ with a motivation of protecting profits and the right to pollute the planet to their heart’s content, while never being accountable for it, and never taking responsibility for the harm that they cause both to people and the planet, much less animals or plants. 

BREITBART RARELY BOTHERS TO FACT CHECK STORIES, BUT THIS IS ALSO A HUGE ISSUE FOR MASS MEDIA IN GENERAL

The mass media in general suffers from a huge problem of not checking very basic facts. When a mass media outlet publishes global warming denial articles, that does harm. Yes, the article is good for corporations, and it helps the mass media outlet make money because that attracts the BIG money from HUGE corporations, but in the end, it destroys humanity and the world, by promoting lies and deception. Fact checking is a huge issue for the whole mass media globally, not just for Breitbart specifically.

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/06/top-global-warming-denialists-funded-by.html

“The notoriously dimwitted hacks at Breitbart News practice a form of pseudo-journalism that reeks of ultra-rightist propaganda (or just plain reeks). They rarely bother to fact check their stories as was demonstrated recently when they published a false item about Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel receiving donations from an organization that, it turns out, doesn’t exist. Likewise, they posted a story as “news” that they sourced to site that produces satirical articles. And to make matters worse, they had previously mocked the Washington Post for falling for an article from the same site.”
http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/?p=9426

The mass media does the very same thing that Breitbart does, which is to air things without even fact checking basic things like; is it true? Is what we are about to publish even factual?

7 MOST RIDICULOUS BREITBART ARTICLES OF THE WEEK, BUT MASS MEDIA IN GENERAL IS GUILTY OF THIS SAME TACTIC IN A MUCH LARGER WAY

The 7 Most Ridiculous Breitbart Articles of the Week

Week in Review: A Right Wing Fail-a-Ganza

breitbart.com went ballistic over Elizabeth Warren’s “plagiarism,” called for her to be fired, and said she would “throw her daughter under the bus” to save herself … after the plagiarism story was already debunked.

http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/40396_The_7_Most_Ridiculous_Breitbart_Articles_of_the_Week

The mass media is guilty of sensationalizing news, promoting minutia endlessly and repeating things much like the propagandistic Nazi Germany, even if there is very little actual truth involved. Instead of doing investigative journalism and fact checking the actual sources, a pro corporate interest sensationalistic PR piece or movie is produced, often with the illusion or appearance of journalism or of ‘science’, but with very little or no actual science or journalistic truth/ethics in it. 
Here is an example of how this PR propaganda for corporations works in left leaning news organizations as well.

HEIRS TO SLEAZE PEDDLER ANDREW BREITBART  EMBARRASS EVEN ALLIES ON THE RIGHT, MASS MEDIA IS GUILTY OF THE SAME THING

When the whole model of the mass media is based on deception and misinformation, it tends to become more and more corrupt and sleazy as it goes along.

The mass media has gotten so corrupt, so biased towards corporate interests in general, that it now REFUSES TO COVER THE REAL NEWS.. Want proof? The mass media refused to cover this global event, and thus people don’t even know about it. This was huge news when it happened, but the mass media refused to cover it, despite being asked. The same thing can be said for the Occupy movement, as it was not really covered, except in a negative, dismissive, demeaning manner. 

9/21/14 Largest Ever Global Climate Change Protest; Close To Zero Coverage By Mass Media, What Is The Goal?
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2014/09/largest-ever-global-climate-change.html


Source/credit Troy Livingston

When a global event such as this is not even covered, what does that say about the pro corporate agenda and the anti 99 percent demonization within the mass media? 

BREITBART SMEARS OCCUPY MOVEMENT JUST AS MOST MASS MEDIA DID AS WELL, PORTRAY IT AS A FAILURE, WHEN IT WAS ACTUALLY A HUGE SUCCESS

In general, the mass media is anti anything that is pro the 99% and anti 1 percent. Whatever fits into this definition is opposed, smeared and attacked by the mass media in general and by Breitbart plus Fox News specifically, in the vast majority of cases. 

Keith Olbermann takes apart one of Andrew Breitbart’s latest smears of the Occupy movement that we all sadly got a dose of the other night when he was screaming at the protesters outside of CPAC; that the movement is full of rapists.
http://crooksandliars.com/heather/olbermann-debunking-breitbarts-occupy-rape

Why didn’t Breitbart come at this from another angle? For instance, he could have helped to set up a screening process to ensure convicted rapists and murderers did not get into the Occupy camps. Instead he sold a fearmongering hit piece on his ‘news channel’ to scare people away from Occupy and demonize the whole movement while making everyone afraid to even figure out what Occupy is even about. What does that show about the motivation, hidden agenda, and basic journalistic ethics of not just Breitbart, but most of the mass media, which did exactly the same thing?

There were plenty of 1 percent friendly mass media outlets reporting all kinds of endless negative stories about Occupy. Almost none of them had anything positive to say about Occupy, including Fox News and Breitbart. The hidden goal, agenda, and objective seems to be to discredit, attack and smear the 99 percent bottoms up democracy movement and cause it harm.

What is the real story behind Occupy, which the mass media, Breitbart, Fox News and the vast majority of the mass media refused to cover? Isn’t the truth what the Tea Party says it is all about?

http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2015/11/chris-hedges-on-occupy-movement-success.html

Very few Conservatives and Tea Party or Breitbart watchers or readers realize that Occupy is actually representing them too and includes their point of view. They are so easily swayed and bamboozled by the negative fearmongering news that they never even go beyond this to find out the truth for themselves.

Most people watching mass media are so stuck in fear and anger plus having their emotional hot button pushed, that rational thinking and investigating things for themselves is not even on the radar screen. 

ACORN OKEEFE VIDEO BOUGHT BY BREITBART; BUT OKEEFE IS SUED FOR IT, AND AGREES TO PAY $50,000, GILES PAID $100,000, TO SETTLE OUT OF COURT WITH FORMER EMPLOYEE OF ACORN

Deceptive individuals and/or organizations usually end up getting into hot water legally. Did you happen to hear about this on any mass media by the way? Probably not, because it would tend to make the mass media, Fox News and Breitbart News look bad, and we cannot have that now, can we?
Wikipedia; “Andrew Breitbart paid Giles and O’Keefe $32,000 and $65,000, respectively, to film, edit and blog about the videos.[28][29] 

Giles paid $100,000 and O’Keefe paid $50,000[29] to settle a lawsuit brought by former ACORN employee Juan Carlos Vera regarding the videos.[30][31] Subsequent criminal investigations by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office and the California Attorney General found the videos were heavily edited in an attempt to make ACORN’s responses “appear more sinister”,[27][32][33] and contributed to the group’s demise.[34][35]

Clark Hoyt, the The New York Times public editor, wrote, “The videos were heavily edited. The sequence of some conversations was changed. Some workers seemed concerned for Giles, one advising her to get legal help. In two cities, Acorn workers called the police. But the most damning words match the transcripts and the audio, and do not seem out of context,” but notes a former Massachusetts Attorney General hired to investigate the matter found no pattern of illegal conduct by the ACORN employees and said the news media should have been far more skeptical, demanding the raw video from which the edited versions were produced.[36] (here is just another example of mass media lack of journalistic ethics)

In July 2010, Breitbart released a video titled “Proof NAACP Awards Racism” which featured USDA official Shirley Sherrod speaking at a NAACP fundraising dinner in March 2010. In the video released by Breitbart, Sherrod admits to a racial reluctance to help a white farmer obtain government aid. As a result of the video, the NAACP condemned Sherrod’s remarks, and U.S. government officials called on Sherrod to resign, which she did.

SHERROD AND ANDREW BREITBART’S ESTATE REACH TENTATIVE LEGAL SETTLEMENT FOR DAMAGES CAUSED

The NAACP later posted the longer 43-minute video of the speech.[37][38] In it, Sherrod said her reluctance to help a white man was wrong, and she had ended up assisting him. The NAACP then reversed their rebuke of Sherrod,[37] and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack apologized and offered Sherrod a new government position.[39] Breitbart said that the point of the piece was not to target Sherrod, but said the NAACP audience’s reception of some parts of the speech demonstrated the same racism the NAACP’s President had accused the Tea Party movement of harboring.[40] In 2011, Sherrod sued Andrew Breitbart and his business partner Larry O’Connor for defamation.[41] In July 2015, it was reported that Sherrod and Andrew Breitbart’s estate had reached a tentative settlement.[42]

Partners in Crime: Fox News Figures Aided, Abetted Breitbart’s Racial Deception

Fox News’ response to Sherrod fallout: Ignore, whitewash, mislead
Fox News (and many other mass media outlets) spent much of July 19 and 20 ginning up controversy about the false claim that Shirley Sherrod made racist remarks at a NAACP meeting earlier this year. As the claim unraveled, Fox media personalities disappeared their role in the story, continued to smear her as “discriminatory” in the face of contradictory evidence, and boldly suggested the network did not contribute to the controversy.” (here is just another example of mass media lack of journalistic ethics)

REPORTING ON SENSATIONALIZED ‘MISTRUTHS’ SEEMS TO BE A PATTERN FOR BREITBART, BUT ALSO FOR MASS MEDIA IN GENERAL

On February 7, 2013, Ben Shapiro published an article on Breitbart.com reporting allegations that former Senator and nominee for United States Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) may have been paid to speak at an event sponsored by a group called “Friends of Hamas.”[45] Breitbart.com said that the story was based on exclusive information from U.S. Senate sources. The story was later repeated by RedState,[46] National Review,[47] Washington Times,[48] PJ Media.[49]
An investigation by Slate reporter David Weigel failed to confirm the existence of the purported group.[50] On February 19, New York Daily News reporter Dan Friedman said that the story had originated from a sarcastic comment he had made to a congressional staffer. “Friends of Hamas” was one of several groups which Friedman considered to be so over-the-top as to be implausible and obviously fictitious. He said he made the sarcastic comment in an effort to find out what Hagel had done was considered to be anti-Israel. Friedman followed with an email to the congressional staffer asking if Hagel had received a $25,000 fee from Friends of Hamas for his speaking engagement. No reply to the email was received, and the next day, Breitbart ran a story with the headline “Secret Hagel Donor?: White House Spox Ducks Question on ‘Friends of Hamas’.”[51][52]
Breitbart.com maintained that the report was accurate, posting articles defending the website and criticizing Weigel and Friedman.[53][54] Writers for The Washington Post,[55] New York Magazine[56] and The Daily Beast[4] criticized Breitbart.com for the Friends of Hamas story.
The Young Turks Guest Catches Breitbart News’ Ben Shapiro In ‘Friends Of Hamas’ Lie
On Wednesday night’s The Young Turks, host Cenk Uygur and guest Max Read (awesome pen name, even if it’s real) of Gawker criticized the media for not having bothered to debunk the two-week-old story, with the notable exception of Slate’s Dave Weigel. Several conservative media and political figures amplified the story, without bothering to even Google “Friends of Hamas,” and as Cenk pointed out, will pay a price of exactly nothing for that failure. Read also caught a glaring inconsistency in Shapiro’s defense of his reporting, noting that in his first report, Shapiro is “citing Senate sources, plural sources,” whereas in defending that report on Wednesday, “he acknowledges that he only had one source. He’s actually lying in his first article.”
http://www.mediaite.com/tv/the-young-turks-guest-catches-breitbart-news-ben-shapiro-in-friends-of-hamas-lie/

The main focus here is to show just how full of misinformation, deception and lies the mass media is, because they air not only the above kinds of things, but things that are actually much worse. (Here is just another example of lack of journalistic ethics)

IS THE MASS MEDIA OR BREITBART THE EPITOME OF ETHICAL JOURNALISM?

“People consider breitbart the epitome of ethical journalism?? Here is some of his insane unethical articles
He said that all animals that arent useful to humans should be extinct, this article is extremely UNETHICAL due to the fact that many SCIENTIST will tell you such a disruption is actually very harmful to humans, so again hes on the unethical scale
“Planned Parenthood’s Body Count Under Cecile Richards Is Up to Half a Holocaust”
Again super clickbaity article, also very disingenous, comparing a zygote to 6 million jews, is of course unethical, also calling them murderers even though under the law abortion is a legal practice and is not murder.

STUDY BY PNAS SHOWS ORGANIZATIONS WITH CORPORATE FUNDING, INCLUDING MASS MEDIA, ARE POLARIZING GLOBAL WARMING AND CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUE BY PROMOTING HORMESIS AND GLOBAL WARMING DENIALIST THEORY

Much of the mass media is still focused on airing stories by the 100 fake front groups that are greenwashing the global warming problem, by claiming it does not exist, or blaming ‘natural causes’. 
Media Matters: “The study, published November 23 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), found that “organizations with corporate funding were more likely to have written and disseminated texts meant to polarize the climate change issue.” It focused on organizations funded by ExxonMobil and the Koch family foundations, noting that those two funders had been previously “identified as especially influential,” and that funding from these groups “signals entry into a powerful network of influence.”
The study follows criticisms of Exxon Mobil for sowing doubt on climate change through its front groups despite its own scientists confirming the climate change consensus decades ago. New York’s Attorney General is currently investigating whether Exxon deliberately misled the public about climate change, and more than 350,000 people recently signed a petition calling for a federal investigation of the company’s climate misinformation campaign. Documents compiled by Greenpeace show that since 1998, Exxon has given over $30 million in funding to organizations “that work to spread climate denial.
According to the PNAS study, many of these groups’ climate change positions were likely influenced by Exxon’s funding; specifically, the study found that not only were these groups “more likely to have written and disseminated contrarian texts,” but also that “corporate funding influences the actual language and thematic content of polarizing discourse.”
The study detailed the “thematic content” touted by these organizations, which include many industry front groups, and found that fossil fuel-funded organizations more often discussed “temperature trends,” “energy production,” “the positive benefits of CO2,” and “climate change being a long-term cycle” than organizations that did not receive industry funding:

MASS MEDIA, FOX AND BREITBART ALSO SERVE AS COVER ORGANIZATIONS TO DISTRACT PEOPLE FROM REAL ISSUES THAT ARE NEVER SHOWN ON MASS MEDIA, SUCH AS THE DANGERS OF NUCLEAR ENERGY AND MAN MADE RADIATION

While everyone is busy fighting each other over who is right and who is wrong about politics, birth control, the latest personal scandals, sports, terrorists, movie stars, dancing girls, dramas, detective stories, hospital shows, and movies, the real news is ignored, denied and covered up by a pro corporate mass media, which portrays anything that the corporations want as the best thing in the world.

SUMMARY

While the pro nuclear, pro carbon, pro corporate monopoly viewpoint is extensively covered and held up as pure science, as a holy religion even and beyond reproach, the other side or viewpoint is given no notice, no air time, no attention. Is it any surprise that the vast majority of people are totally ignorant about the REAL ISSUES that should be of huge concern to them?

The goal of the corporate 1 percent interests is to divide and conquer. They are doing a great job doing just that, through churches, politics, and the mass media. The 99 percent and their social safety net is being divided, chewed up and spit out via news organizations such as Fox, Breitbart and the mass media in general, via the behind the scenes pay to play corporate influence, hidden in plain sight.

Voting rights and freedoms are disappearing.
Unemployment was cancelled.
Occupy was broken up by force.
Climate change protest was totally ignored.
Food stamps were greatly cut back.
Parks were closed and threatened with being defunded.
Acorn was attacked and dismantled.
Planned Parenthood is currently under attack via these same tactics.

Meanwhile these huge corporations are making record profits and hiding huge piles of money overseas, where it does not one bit of good to anyone by the huge mega banks.

Is it possible that the things that are promoted as the ‘solution’ are actually the problem? 

What would be the problem with cheap subsidized seeds, huge factory farms, chemicals, GMO’s, and junk foods that never rot, so they can sit on the shelf for many years before being sold? All of this food and drinks certainly ‘taste’ good, but are they good for maintaining health, preventing dis-ease? Can they return a person to health if they are sick? 

SUGAR ACTS LIKE A DRUG, AND IT IS ADDICTIVE, EMPTY OF ALL NUTRITION, EXCEPT FOR CALORIES

“When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine — an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more. Nicole Avena explains why sweets and treats should be enjoyed in moderation.”

EATING JUNK FOODS CAUSES MINERAL AND VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES

Foods that are empty of real nutrition cause more hunger, and more overeating, which causes obesity. Underneath all of the supermarkets full of mostly junk foods, is an epidemic of mineral deficiency, and it is getting worse with each generation.

Have you ever wondered why natural organic foods are SO EXPENSIVE, compared to the GMO, factory farmed C.R.A.P. foods? That graphic above explains it all.

The food is so cheap that comes off of those US factory farms with dead soil which is soaked in poisons, that they can undersell the aborigine farmers in Africa and Mexico. Those aborigine farmers have no tractors, no electricity, and own the land free and clear, but they cannot compete with the imported GMO seeds from the US. As a result, the farmers cannot sell their seeds, and end up starving. They are forced to move off their land and into the cities, or they illegally immigrate to the US, because they cannot make enough to survive on where they live now.

As cheap subsidized factory food empty of any meaningful nutrition is exported around the world, the suffering of humanity grows and grows, along with ill health and dis-eases caused by this food and drinks. But that creates another profit opportunity for Big Pharma which then extracts wealth from the pockets of those suffering from the Big Ag products.

SUMMARY

If you see it on TV it is probably not any good for you. That one simple rule will probably help more than anything when it comes to keeping your health or returning to health if you lost it. The mass media is in the pocket of huge corporations and promotes their products, which are mostly not about health or preventing dis-ease, but rather all about short term profits.

“Let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food” ~ Hippocrates 400 B.C.

“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson (1778)

What happens if huge corporations mandates what everyone eats, what everyone is required to get shot into their bodies, and what radiation or chemo they are exposed to, on threat of police action? 1984 is here now.. Just try and use ONLY natural modalities if your child is seriously ill with something like leukemia and you will more than likely find out how quickly the police come to your door and take your child away from you. 

Drugs, Medicine, GMO’s, Super Bugs, Cloning, Flouride, Vaccines, Education, Chemicals
http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/p/natural-health-drugs-medicine.html 

The government, with the invisible corrupted hand and lobbying influence of huge corporations behind them has decided what everyone will eat, consume, wear and be ‘treated’ with, in the name of the highest profits possible, for the 1 percent, who make all decisions for everyone.

2 SIMPLE TIPS ON HOW TO STOP CONSUMING C.R.A.P. JUNK FOOD

We all have a monster in us for junk food… mine is called The Chocolate Monster. Im telling you, every time I think he’s dead, he rears his ugly head and we head back to battle again. For some people its potato chips, or mcdonalds, or sour keys candy, or cinabuns… but whatever form your junk monster comes in, I promise you that there is always hope.”

Activism Teach In; Using Satire, Parody And Humor As An Activist Tool, Learn To Play And Have Fun With The Monsters, Laughter Is The Best Medicine For Healing

Activism Teach In; Using Satire, Parody And Humor As An Activist Tool, Learn To Play And Have Fun With The Monsters, Laughter Is The Best Medicine For Healing
Satire and humor can be a double edged sword. On the one hand, satire or humor can be used to destroy people and/or cut them down in a demeaning way that is nothing more than projection of unconscious inner hatreds, fears and prejudices. 
On the other hand, satire and/or humor can be used in a way that can be called playing with and having fun with your monsters. Humor, parody and satire can be used as a healing force, which is very powerful. Laughter therapy is well known and enjoyable. Here is just one example of parody in action as light humor.

In other words, rather than fearing the dark forces that are within every person and having a dysfunctional relationship with them, how about learning to get to know them, embrace them and then have fun with them, using them as a source of fun, laughter, wisdom and strength, rather than weakness, depression, frustration, hopelessness and fatalism.
It is true, that one attracts more people with honey and laughter than with hatred.
Here are some examples of satire and humor in action… Remember, it is up to the reader to decide if the things being talked about are ‘real’, fiction, or some mixture of the two, just like everything seen or read about on A Green Road.

AN EXAMPLE OF SATIRE IN ACTION; FIRST RULE IS; MARK AN ONLINE COMMENT WITH SOMETHING TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND IT IS SATIRE, OR THEY MAKE TAKE IT PERSONALLY, BE OFFENDED, WHICH MAY HAPPEN ANYWAY, NO MATTER WHAT!

Dr. Goodheart November 22, 2015  MOre of that satire… it is like a virus, and spreading.. infecting everyone.. OMG!
Maybe they can develop a vaccine for that!
src

Making a sarcastic comment online can easily offend people, even if it is not aimed at anyone personally, so make sure that if you crack a joke to lighten up a very depressing or sad situation, that you end with the word (sarcasm) or some shortened version of it, such as the one above.

A small minority of people will still be offended and take it personally, but that is their problem, not yours. It is like comedy. Not everyone laughs at all forms of humor or sarcasm. You cannot please everyone. But if the goal is to get the maximum number of people to lighten up and laugh, then humor and sarcasm is a MUST.

Humor and sarcasm can also be used as an activist tool. This article describes and explores various forms of humor, sarcasm, and how to use humor as a healing tool, as well as an activism tool.

Of course, you may think and believe that this is all baloney, fear mongering or whatever, and you maybe right.. This whole article may not be true, and you get to decide what is real, what is fake, what works and what to reject as totally worthless claptrap.

Let’s dive in… prepare for some cringe humor… don’t worry, it only ‘hurts’ the funny bone…

THE ONION – ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF SATIRE NEWS

Wikipedia; “The Onion is an American digital media company and news satire organization that publishes articles on international, national, and local news. Based in Chicago, the company originated as a weekly print publication in 1988 in Madison, Wisconsin. In the spring of 1996 The Onion began publishing online. In 2007, the organization began publishing satirical news audio and video online, as the Onion News Network. In 2013, The Onionceased publishing its print edition and launched Onion Labs, an advertising agency.[2][3]
The Onion‍ ’​s articles cover current events, both real and fictional, satirizing the tone and format of traditional news organizations with stories, editorials, op-ed pieces, and man-in-the-street interviews using a traditional news website layout and an editorial voice modeled after that of the Associated Press. The publication’s humor often depends on presenting mundane, everyday events as newsworthy, surreal or alarming. Comedian Bob Odenkirk has praised the publication stating, “It’s the best comedy writing in the country, and it has been since it started.”[4]
Once a person learns to play with their own monsters and not deny them or project them onto others, using satire is one of the ways to heal the world. Instead of getting sad, gloomy, fearful, angry or depressed, play with the monsters and have fun with that dark energy, using humor. It takes a brave courageous person to go there, and it has many pitfalls and distinctions, but if a person can master this art and skill, it adds a huge amount of power, consciousness and awareness to a Dr. Goodheart trained activist’s toolbag. A Green Road Project is all about satire, humor, having fun playing with monsters and presenting a world vision that could be, but is not yet. 
The way to get to this point is to follow your own trail through the woods, which you may have to build, on your own, with no help from anyone else, because no one is willing to go there with you, at least at first. But once you built a trail, a few may follow it, and follow you. They may expand the trail to a road, which many more people can easily travel on. Those who travel down this road, may decide to expand this road to a superfreeway, so that many more people can travel down it, at a faster pace and in greater ease plus comfort. Remember to ask the question when building this trail; 
What works without causing harm to seven future generations?

SATIRE IN COMEDY SHOWS

Wikipedia
1867 edition of Punch, a ground-breaking British magazine of popular humour, including a great deal of satire of the contemporary, social, and political scene.
Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphicand performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement.[1] Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.
A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm—”in satire, irony is militant”[2]—but parody, burlesqueexaggeration,[3] juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing. This “militant” irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to attack.
Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including literature, plays, commentary, television shows, and media such as lyrics.

Etymology and roots

The word satire comes from the Latin word satur and the subsequent phrase lanx satura. Saturmeant “full” but the juxtaposition with lanx shifted the meaning to “miscellany or medley”: the expression lanx satura literally means “a full dish of various kinds of fruits.”[4]
The word satura as used by Quintilian, however, was used to denote only Roman verse satire, a strict genre that imposed hexameter form, a narrower genre than what would be later intended as satire.[4][5] Quintilian famously said that satura, that is a satire in hexameter verses, was a literary genre of wholly Roman origin (satura tota nostra est). He was aware of and commented on Greek satire, but at the time did not label it as such, although today the origin of satire is considered to be Aristophanes’ Old Comedy. The first critic to use satire in the modern broader sense was Apuleius.[4]
To Quintilian, the satire was a strict literary form, but the term soon escaped from the original narrow definition. Robert Elliott writes:
As soon as a noun enters the domain of metaphor, as one modern scholar has pointed out, it clamours for extension; and satura (which had had no verbal, adverbial, or adjectival forms) was immediately broadened by appropriation from the Greek word for “satyr” (satyros) and its derivatives. The odd result is that the English “satire” comes from the Latin satura; but “satirize”, “satiric”, etc., are of Greek origin. By about the 4th century AD the writer of satires came to be known as satyricus; St. Jerome, for example, was called by one of his enemies ‘a satirist in prose’ (‘satyricus scriptor in prosa’). Subsequent orthographic modifications obscured the Latin origin of the word satire: satura becomes satyra, and in England, by the 16th century, it was written ‘satyre.’[1]
The word satire derives from satura, and its origin was not influenced by the Greek mythological figure of the satyr.[6] In the 17th century, philologist Isaac Casaubon was the first to dispute the etymology of satire from satyr, contrary to the belief up to that time.[7]

Satire and humor

Laughter is not an essential component of satire;[8] in fact there are types of satire that are not meant to be “funny” at all. Conversely, not all humour, even on such topics as politics, religion or art is necessarily “satirical”, even when it uses the satirical tools of irony, parody, and burlesque.
Even light-hearted satire has a serious “after-taste”: the organizers of the Ig Nobel Prizedescribe this as “first make people laugh, and then make them think”.[9]

Social and psychological functions

Satire and irony in some cases have been regarded as the most effective source to understand a society, the oldest form of social study.[10] They provide the keenest insights into a group’scollective psyche, reveal its deepest values and tastes, and the society’s structures of power.[11][12] Some authors have regarded satire as superior to non-comic and non-artistic disciplines like history or anthropology.[10][13][14] In a prominent example from Ancient Greece, philosopher Plato, when asked by a friend for a book to understand Athenian society, referred him to the plays of Aristophanes.[15][16]
Historically, satire has satisfied the popular need to debunk and ridicule the leading figures in politics, economy, religion and other prominent realms of power.[17] Satire confronts public discourse and the collective imaginary, playing as a public opinion counterweight to power (be it political, economic, religious, symbolic, or otherwise), by challenging leaders and authorities. For instance, it forces administrations to clarify, amend or establish their policies. Satire’s job is to expose problems and contradictions, and it’s not obligated to solve them.[18] Karl Kraus set in the history of satire a prominent example of a satirist role as confronting public discourse.[19]
For its nature and social role, satire has enjoyed in many societies a special freedom license to mock prominent individuals and institutions.[20] The satiric impulse, and its ritualized expressions, carry out the function of resolving social tension.[21] Institutions like the ritual clowns, by giving expression to the antisocial tendencies, represent a safety valve which reestablishes equilibrium and health in the collective imaginary, which are jeopardized by therepressive aspects of society.[22][23]
The state of political satire in a given society reflects the tolerance or intolerance that characterizes it,[17] and the state of civil liberties and human rights. Under totalitarian regimesany criticism of a political system, and especially satire, is suppressed. A typical example is theSoviet Union where the dissidents, such as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Andrei Sakharov were under strong pressure from the government. While satire of everyday life in the USSR was allowed, the most prominent satirist being Arkady Raikin, political satire existed in the form ofanecdotes[24] that made fun of Soviet political leaders, especially Brezhnev, famous for his narrow-mindness and love for awards and decorations.

Classifications of satire

Satire is a diverse genre which is complex to classify and define, with a wide range of satiric “modes”.[25][26]

Horatian, Juvenalian, Menippean

“Le satire e l’epistole di Q. Orazio Flacco”, printed in 1814.
Satirical literature can commonly be categorized as either Horatian, Juvenalian, or Menippean.[27]

Horatian

Horatian satire, named for the Roman satirist Horace (65–8 BCE), playfully criticizes some social vice through gentle, mild, and light-hearted humour. Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus) wrote Satires to gently ridicule the dominant opinions and “philosophical beliefs of ancient Rome and Greece” (Rankin).[28]Rather than writing in harsh or accusing tones, he addressed issues with humor and clever mockery. Horatian satire follows this same pattern of “gently [ridiculing] the absurdities and follies of human beings” (Drury).[29]
It directs wit, exaggeration, and self-deprecating humour toward what it identifies as folly, rather than evil. Horatian satire’s sympathetic tone is common in modern society.[30]
A Horatian satirist’s goal is to heal the situation with smiles, rather than by anger. A Horatian satirist makes fun of general human folly rather than engaging in specific or personal attacks. Shamekia Thomas suggests, “In a work using Horatian satire, readers often laugh at the characters in the story who are the subject of mockery as well as themselves and society for behaving in those ways.” Alexander Pope has been established as an author whose satire “heals with morals what it hurts with wit” (Green).[31] Alexander Pope—and Horatian satire—attempt to teach.

Examples:

Juvenalian

Juvenalian satire, named after the Roman satirist Juvenal (late 1st century – early 2nd century AD), is more contemptuous and abrasive than the Horatian. Juvenal disagreed with the opinions of the public figures and institutions of the Republic and actively attacked them through his literature. “He utilized the satirical tools of exaggeration and parody to make his targets appear monstrous and incompetent” (Podzemny).[32] Juvenal satire follows this same pattern of abrasively ridiculing societal structures.
Juvenalian satire addresses social evil through scorn, outrage, and savage ridicule. This form is often pessimistic, characterized by irony, sarcasm, moral indignation and personal invective, with less emphasis on humor. Strongly polarized political satire is often Juvenalian. See also:Satires of Juvenal.
A Juvenal satirist’s goal is to provoke some sort of change because he sees his opponent as evil or harmful. A Juvenal satirist mocks “societal structure, power, and civilization” (Thomas).[33] He will do this by exaggerating the words or position of his opponent in order to jeopardize his opponent’s reputation and/or power. Jonathan Swift has been established as an author who “borrowed heavily from Juvenal’s techniques in [his critique] of contemporary English society” (Podzemny).[32] Jonathan Swift—and Juvenalian satire—attempt to punish.

Examples:

Cooke, Ebenezer, The Sot-Weed Factor; or, A Voyage to Maryland,—a satire, in which is described the laws, government, courts, and constitutions of the country, and also the buildings, feasts, frolics, entertainments, and drunken humors of the inhabitants in that part of America.
Hall, Joseph, Virgidemiarum.
Johnson, Samuel, London, an adaptation of Juvenal, Third Satire.
———, The Day Today.
Orwell, George, Animal Farm.

Satire versus teasing

In the history of theatre there has always been a conflict between engagement and disengagement on politics and relevant issue, between satire and grotesque on one side, andjest with teasing on the other.[34] Max Eastman defined the spectrum of satire in terms of “degrees of biting”, as ranging from satire proper at the hot-end, and “kidding” at the violet-end; Eastman adopted the term kidding to denote what is just satirical in form, but is not really firing at the target.[35] 
Nobel laureate satirical playwright Dario Fo pointed out the difference between satire and teasing (sfottò).[36] Teasing is the reactionary side of the comic; it limits itself to a shallow parody of physical appearance. The side-effect of teasing is that it humanizes and draws sympathy for the powerful individual towards which it is directed. 
Satire instead uses the comic to go against power and its oppressions, has a subversive character, and a moral dimension which draws judgement against its targets.[37][38][39][40] Fo formulated an operational criteria to tell real satire from sfottò, saying that real satire arouses an outraged and violent reaction, and that the more they try to stop you, the better is the job you are doing.[41] 
Fo contends that, historically, people in positions of power have welcomed and encouraged good-humoured buffoonery, while modern day people in positions of power have tried to censor, ostracize and repress satire.[34][37]
Teasing (sfottò) is an ancient form of simple buffoonery, a form of comedy without satire’s subversive edge. Teasing includes light and affectionate parody, good-humoured mockery, simple one-dimensional poking fun, and benign spoofs. Teasing typically consists of animpersonation of someone monkeying around with his exterior attributes, tics, physical blemishes, voice and mannerisms, quirks, way of dressing and walking, and/or the phrases he typically repeats. 
By contrast, teasing never touches on the core issue, never makes a serious criticism judging the target with irony; it never harms the target’s conduct, ideology and position of power; it never undermines the perception of his morality and cultural dimension.[37][39] Sfottòdirected towards a powerful individual makes him appear more human and draws sympathy towards him.[42] Hermann Göring propagated jests and jokes against himself, with the aim of humanizing his image.[43][44]

Classifications by topics

Types of satire can also be classified according to the topics it deals with. From the earliest times, at least since the plays of Aristophanes, the primary topics of literary satire have been politics, religion and sex.[45][46][47][48] This is partly because these are the most pressing problems that affect anybody living in a society, and partly because these topics are usuallytaboo.[45][49] Among these, politics in the broader sense is considered the pre-eminent topic of satire.[49] Satire which targets the clergy is a type of political satire, while religious satire is that which targets religious beliefs.[50] Satire on sex may overlap with blue comedy, off-color humorand dick jokes.
Scatology has a long literary association with satire,[45][51][52] as it is a classical mode of thegrotesque, the grotesque body and the satiric grotesque.[45][53] Shit plays a fundamental role in satire because it symbolizes death, the turd being “the ultimate dead object”.[51][52] The satirical comparison of individuals or institutions with human excrement, exposes their “inherent inertness, corruption and dead-likeness”.[51][54][55]

BLACK HUMOR, GALLOWS HUMOR

The ritual clowns of clown societies, like among the Pueblo Indians, have ceremonies with filth-eating.[56][57] In other cultures, sin-eatingis an apotropaic rite in which the sin-eater (also called filth-eater),[58][59] by ingesting the food provided, takes “upon himself the sins of the departed”.[60] Satire about death overlaps with black humor and gallows humor.
Another classification by topics is the distinction between political satire, religious satire and satire of manners.[61] Political satire is sometimes called topical satire, satire of manners is sometimes called satire of everyday life, and religious satire is sometimes called philosophical satire. 
Comedy of manners, sometimes also called satire of manners, criticizes mode of life of common people; political satire aims at behavior, manners of politicians, and vices of political systems. Historically, comedy of manners, which first appeared in British theater in 1620, has uncritically accepted the social code of the upper classes.[62] Comedy in general accepts the rules of the social game, while satire subverts them.[63]
Another analysis of satire is the spectrum of his possible tones: wit, ridicule, irony, sarcasm,cynicism, the sardonic and invective.[64][65]

Classifications by medium

Satire is found not only in written literary forms. In preliterate cultures it manifests itself in ritual and folk forms, as well as in trickster tales and oral poetry.[21]
It appears also in graphic arts, music, sculpture, dance, cartoon strips, and graffiti. Examples areDada sculptures, Pop Art works, music of Gilbert and Sullivan and Erik Satie, punk and rock music.[21] In modern media culture, stand-up comedy is an enclave in which satire can be introduced into mass media, challenging mainstream discourse.[21] Comedy roasts, mock festivals, and stand-up comedians in nightclubs and concerts are the modern forms of ancient satiric rituals.[21]

Development

Ancient Egypt

Satirical Ostraca showing a Cat guarding geese c1120 BC, Egypt.
Figured Ostracon Showing a Cat Waiting on a Mouse, Egypt
One of the earliest examples of what we might call satire, The Satire of the Trades,[66] is in Egyptian writing from the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC. The text’s apparent readers are students, tired of studying. It argues that their lot as scribes is useful, and their lot far superior to that of the ordinary man. Scholars such as Helck[67] think that the context was meant to be serious.
The Papyrus Anastasi I[68] (late 2nd millennium BC) contains a satirical letter which first praises the virtues of its recipient, but then mocks the reader’s meagre knowledge and achievements.

Ancient Greece

The Greeks had no word for what later would be called “satire”, although the terms cynicism and parody were used. Modern critics call the Greek playwrightAristophanes one of the best known early satirists: his plays are known for their critical political and societal commentary,[69] particularly for the political satire by which he criticized the powerful Cleon (as in The Knights). 
He is also notable for the persecution he underwent.[69][70][71][72] Aristophanes’ plays turned upon images of filth and disease.[73] His bawdy style was adopted by Greek dramatist-comedianMenander. His early play Drunkenness contains an attack on the politician Callimedon.
The oldest form of satire still in use is the Menippean satire by Menippus of Gadara. His own writings are lost. Examples from his admirers and imitators mix seriousness and mockery in dialogues and present parodies before a background of diatribe. As in the case of Aristophanes plays, menippean satire turned upon images of filth and disease.[73]

Roman world

The first Roman to discuss satire critically was Quintilian, who invented the term to describe the writings of Lucilius. The two most prominent and influential ancient Roman satirists are Horaceand Juvenal, who wrote during the early days of the Roman Empire. Other important satirists in ancient Latin are Lucilius and Persius
Satire in their work is much wider than in the modern sense of the word, including fantastic and highly coloured humorous writing with little or no real mocking intent. When Horace criticized Augustus, he used veiled ironic terms. In contrast, Plinyreports that the 6th century BC poet Hipponax wrote satirae that were so cruel that the offended hanged themselves.[74]

Medieval Islamic world

Main articles: Arabic satire and Persian satire
Medieval Arabic poetry included the satiric genre hija. Satire was introduced into Arabic prose literature by the Afro-Arab author Al-Jahiz in the 9th century. While dealing with serious topics in what are now known as anthropology, sociology and psychology, he introduced a satirical approach, “based on the premise that, however serious the subject under review, it could be made more interesting and thus achieve greater effect, if only one leavened the lump of solemnity by the insertion of a few amusing anecdotes or by the throwing out of some witty or paradoxical observations. 
He was well aware that, in treating of new themes in his prose works, he would have to employ a vocabulary of a nature more familiar in hija, satirical poetry.”[75] For example, in one of his zoological works, he satirized the preference for longer human penis size, writing: “If the length of the penis were a sign of honor, then the mule would belong to the (honorable tribe of) Quraysh“. Another satirical story based on this preference was an Arabian Nights tale called “Ali with the Large Member”.[76]
In the 10th century, the writer Tha’alibi recorded satirical poetry written by the Arabic poets As-Salami and Abu Dulaf, with As-Salami praising Abu Dulaf’s wide breadth of knowledge and then mocking his ability in all these subjects, and with Abu Dulaf responding back and satirizing As-Salami in return.[77] An example of Arabic political satire included another 10th-century poet Jarir satirizing Farazdaq as “a transgressor of the Sharia” and later Arabic poets in turn using the term “Farazdaq-like” as a form of political satire.[78]
The terms “comedy” and “satire” became synonymous after Aristotle‘s Poetics was translated into Arabic in the medieval Islamic world, where it was elaborated upon by Islamic philosophersand writers, such as Abu Bischr, his pupil Al-Farabi, Avicenna, and Averroes. Due to cultural differences, they disassociated comedy from Greek dramatic representation and instead identified it with Arabic poetic themes and forms, such as hija (satirical poetry). 
They viewed comedy as simply the “art of reprehension”, and made no reference to light and cheerful events, or troubled beginnings and happy endings, associated with classical Greek comedy. After theLatin translations of the 12th century, the term “comedy” thus gained a new semantic meaning inMedieval literature.[79]
Ubayd Zakani introduced satire in Persian literature during the 14th century. His work is noted for its satire and obscene verses, often political or bawdy, and often cited in debates involvinghomosexual practices. He wrote the Resaleh-ye Delgosha, as well as Akhlaq al-Ashraf (“Ethics of the Aristocracy”) and the famous humorous fable Masnavi Mush-O-Gorbeh (Mouse and Cat), which was a political satire. His non-satirical serious classical verses have also been regarded as very well written, in league with the other great works of Persian literature. Between 1905 and 1911, Bibi Khatoon Astarabadi and other Iranian writers wrote notable satires.

Medieval Europe

In the Early Middle Ages, examples of satire were the songs by Goliards or vagants now best known as an anthology called Carmina Burana and made famous as texts of a composition by the 20th-century composer Carl Orff. Satirical poetry is believed to have been popular, although little has survived. With the advent of the High Middle Ages and the birth of modern vernacular literature in the 12th century, it began to be used again, most notably by Chaucer
The disrespectful manner was considered “Unchristian” and ignored but for the moral satire, which mocked misbehaviour in Christian terms. Examples are Livre des Manières by Étienne de Fougères (fr) (~1178), and some of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. The epos was mocked, and even the feudal society, but there was hardly a general interest in the genre.
Two major satirists of Europe in the Renaissance were Giovanni Boccaccio and François Rabelais. Other examples of Renaissance satire include Till Eulenspiegel, Reynard the Fox,Sebastian Brant‘s Narrenschiff (1494), ErasmusMoriae Encomium (1509) and Thomas More‘sUtopia (1516).

Early modern western satire

Pieter Bruegel‘s 1568 satirical painting The Blind Leading the Blind.
Direct social commentary via satire returned with a vengeance in the 16th century, when farcical texts such as the works of François Rabelais tackled more serious issues (and incurred the wrath of the crown as a result).
The Elizabethan (i.e. 16th-century English) writers thought of satire as related to the notoriously rude, coarse and sharp satyr play. Elizabethan “satire” (typically in pamphlet form) therefore contains more straightforward abuse than subtle irony. 
The French Huguenot Isaac Casaubon pointed out in 1605 that satire in the Roman fashion was something altogether more civilised. Casaubon discovered and published Quintilian’s writing and presented the original meaning of the term (satira, not satyr), and the sense of wittiness (reflecting the “dishfull of fruits”) became more important again. 17th-century English satire once again aimed at the “amendment of vices” (Dryden).
In the 1590s a new wave of verse satire broke with the publication of Hall‘s Virgidemiarum, six books of verse satires targeting everything from literary fads to corrupt noblemen. AlthoughDonne had already circulated satires in manuscript, Hall’s was the first real attempt in English at verse satire on the Juvenalian model.[80][page needed] The success of his work combined with a national mood of disillusion in the last years of Elizabeth’s reign triggered an avalanche of satire – much of it less conscious of classical models than Hall’s — until the fashion was brought to an abrupt stop by censorship.[a]

Age of Enlightenment

‘A Welch wedding’ Satirical Cartoon c.1780
The Age of Enlightenment, an intellectual movement in the 17th and 18th century advocating rationality, produced a great revival of satire in Britain. This was fuelled by the rise of partisan politics, with the formalisation of the Tory and Whig parties — and also, in 1714, by the formation of the Scriblerus Club, which included Alexander Pope, Jonathan Swift, John Gay, John Arbuthnot, Robert HarleyThomas Parnell, and Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke
This club included several of the notable satirists of early 18th century Britain. They focused their attention on Martinus Scriblerus, “an invented learned fool… whose work they attributed all that was tedious, narrow-minded, and pedantic in contemporary scholarship”.[82] In their hands astute and biting satire of institutions and individuals became a popular weapon. The turn to the 18th century was characterized by a switch from Horatian, soft, pseudo-satire, to biting “juvenal” satire.[83]
Jonathan Swift was one of the greatest of Anglo-Irish satirists, and one of the first to practise modern journalistic satire. For instance, In his A Modest Proposal Swift suggests that Irish peasants be encouraged to sell their own children as food for the rich, as a solution to the “problem” of poverty. His purpose is of course to attack indifference to the plight of the desperately poor. In his book Gulliver’s Travels he writes about the flaws in human society in general and English society in particular. 
John Dryden wrote an influential essay entitled “A Discourse Concerning the Original and Progress of Satire” [84] that helped fix the definition of satire in the literary world. His satirical Mac Flecknoe was written in response to a rivalry withThomas Shadwell and eventually inspired Alexander Pope to write his satirical The Rape of the Lock. Other satirical works by Pope include the Epistle to Dr Arbuthnot.
Daniel Defoe pursued a more journalistic type of satire, being famous for his The True-Born Englishman which mocks xenophobic patriotism, and The Shortest-Way with the Dissenters – advocating religious toleration by means of an ironical exaggeration of the highly intolerant attitudes of his time.
The pictorial satire of William Hogarth is a precursor to the development of political cartoons in 18th century England.[85] The medium developed under the direction of its greatest exponent,James Gillray from London.[86] With his satirical works calling the king (George III), prime ministers and generals (especially Napoleon) to account, Gillray’s wit and keen sense of the ridiculous made him the pre-eminent cartoonist of the era.[86]
Ebenezer Cooke (1665-1732), author of “The Sot-Weed Factor” (1708), was among the first American colonialists to write literary satire. Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) and others followed, using satire to shape an emerging nation’s culture through its sense of the ridiculous.
Satire in Victorian England[edit]
Several satiric papers competed for the public’s attention in the Victorian era (1837-1901) and Edwardian period, such as Punch (1841) and Fun (1861).
Perhaps the most enduring examples of Victorian satire, however, are to be found in the Savoy Operas of Gilbert and Sullivan. In fact, in The Yeomen of the Guard, a jester is given lines that paint a very neat picture of the method and purpose of the satirist, and might almost be taken as a statement of Gilbert’s own intent:”I can set a braggart quailing with a quip,The upstart I can wither with a whim;He may wear a merry laugh upon his lip,But his laughter has an echo that is grim!”
Novelists such as Charles Dickens often used passages of satiric writing in their treatment of social issues.
In the same period, in the United States, Mark Twain (1835-1910) was a great American satirist: his novel Huckleberry Finn (1884) is set in the antebellum South, where the moral values Twain wishes to promote are completely turned on their heads. His hero, Huck, is a rather simple but goodhearted lad who is ashamed of the “sinful temptation” that leads him to help a runawayslave. In fact his conscience, warped by the distorted moral world he has grown up in, often bothers him most when he is at his best. Ironically, he is prepared to do good, believing it to be wrong.
Twain’s younger contemporary Ambrose Bierce (1842-1913) gained notoriety as a cynic, pessimist and black humorist with his dark, bitterly ironic stories, many set during the American Civil War, which satirized the limitations of human perception and reason. Bierce’s most famous work of satire is probably The Devil’s Dictionary (1906), in which the definitions mock cant,hypocrisy and received wisdom.

20th century satire

Karl Kraus is considered the first major European satirist since Jonathan Swift.[19] In 20th century literature, satire was used by authors such as Aldous Huxley (1930s) and George Orwell(1940s), which under the inspiration of Zamyatin‘s Russian 1921 novel We, made serious and even frightening commentaries on the dangers of the sweeping social changes taking place throughout Europe. Many social critics of this same time in the United States, such as Dorothy Parker and H. L. Mencken, used satire as their main weapon, and Mencken in particular is noted for having said that “one horse-laugh is worth ten thousand syllogisms” in the persuasion of the public to accept a criticism. 
Novelist Sinclair Lewis was known for his satirical stories such asMain Street (1920), Babbitt (1922), Elmer Gantry (1927; dedicated by Lewis to H.L. Menchen), and It Can’t Happen Here (1935), and his books often explored and satirized contemporary American values. The film The Great Dictator (1940) by Charlie Chaplin is itself a parody ofAdolf Hitler; Chaplin later declared that he would have not made the film if he had known about the concentration camps.[87]
Benzino Napaloni and Adenoid Hynkel in The Great Dictator (1940). Chaplin later declared that he would have not made the film if he had known about the concentration camps.[87]

STAND UP COMEDY CHALLENGES TABOOS AND CONVENTIONAL WISDOM

In the United States 1950s, satire was introduced into American stand-up comedy most prominently by Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl.[21] As they challenged the taboos and conventional wisdom of the time, were ostracized by the mass media establishment as sick comedians. In the same period, Paul Krassner‘s magazine The Realist began publication, to become immensely popular during the 1960s and early 1970s among people in the counterculture; it had articles and cartoons that were savage, biting satires of politicians such as Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon, the Vietnam War, the Cold War and the War on Drugs.

Prominent satiric stand-up comedian George Carlin acknowledged the influence The Realist had in his 1970s conversion to a satiric comedian.[88][89]

A more humorous brand of satire enjoyed a renaissance in the UK in the early 1960s with the satire boom, led by such luminaries as Peter Cook, Alan Bennett, Jonathan Miller, and Dudley Moore, whose stage show Beyond the Fringe was a hit not only in Britain, but also in the United States. Other significant influences in 1960s British satire include David Frost, Eleanor Bron and thetelevision program That Was The Week That Was.[90]
Joseph Heller‘s most famous work, Catch-22 (1961), satirizes bureaucracy and the military, and is frequently cited as one of the greatest literary works of the twentieth century.[91] The film Dr. Strangelove from 1964 was a popular satire on the Cold War.

Contemporary satire

Contemporary popular usage of the term “satire” is often very imprecise. While satire often uses caricature and parody, by no means are all uses of these or other humorous devices, satiric. Refer to the careful definition of satire that heads this article.
Satire is used on many UK television programmes, particularly popular panel shows and quiz shows such as Mock the Week (2005) and Have I Got News for You (1990-ongoing). Similarly it is found on radio quiz shows such as The News Quiz (1977-ongoing) and The Now Show (1998-ongoing). One of the most-watched UK television shows of the 1980s and early 1990s, the puppet show Spitting Image was a satire of the royal family, politics, entertainment, sport and British culture of the era.[92] Created by DMA Design in 1997, satire also features prominently in the British video game series Grand Theft Auto.[93]
Stephen Colbert satirically impersonated an opinionated and self-righteous television commentator on his Comedy Central program in the United States.
Tina Fey as Sarah Palin (left) and Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton(right) on the American comedy television show Saturday Night Live.
The television program South Park (1997-ongoing) relies almost exclusively on satire to address issues in American culture, with episodes addressing anti-Semitism, militant atheism, homophobia, environmentalism, corporate culture,political correctness and anti-Catholicism, among many other issues.
Australian Chris Lilley produces comedy art in the style of mockumentaries (We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High, Angry Boys) and his work is often described as complex social satire.
Stephen Colbert’s television program, The Colbert Report(2005-2014), is instructive in the methods of contemporary American satire. Colbert’s character is an opinionated and self-righteous commentator who, in his TV interviews, interrupts people, points and wags his finger at them, and “unwittingly” uses a number of logical fallacies. In doing so, he demonstrates the principle of modern American political satire: the ridicule of the actions of politicians and other public figures by taking all their statements and purported beliefs to their furthest (supposedly) logical conclusion, thus revealing their perceived hypocrisy or absurdity.
The American sketch comedy television show Saturday Night Live is also known for its satirical impressions and parodies of prominent persons and politicians, among some of the most notable, their parodies of U.S. political figures Hillary Clinton[94] and of Sarah Palin.[95]
Other political satire includes various political causes in the past, including the relatively successful Polish Beer-Lovers’ Party and the joke political candidates Molly the Dog[96] andBrian Miner.[97]
In the United Kingdom, a popular modern satirist is Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the internationally best-selling Discworld book series. One of the most well-known and controversial British satirists is Sir Chris Morris, co-writer and director of Four Lions.
In Canada, satire has become an important part of the comedy scene. Stephen Leacock was one of the best known early Canadian satirists, and in the early 20th century, he achieved fame by targeting the attitudes of small town life. In more recent years, Canada has had several prominent satirical television series and radio shows. 
Some, including CODCO, The Royal Canadian Air Farce, This Is That, and This Hour Has 22 Minutes deal directly with current news stories and political figures, while others, like History Bites present contemporary social satire in the context of events and figures in history. The Canadian organization Canada News Networkprovides commentary on contemporary news events that are primarily Canadian in nature. Canadian songwriter Nancy White uses music as the vehicle for her satire, and her comic folk songs are regularly played on CBC Radio.
Cartoonists often use satire as well as straight humour. Al Capp‘s satirical comic strip Li’l Abnerwas censored in September 1947. The controversy, as reported in Time, centred on Capp’s portrayal of the US Senate. Said Edward Leech of Scripps-Howard, “We don’t think it is good editing or sound citizenship to picture the Senate as an assemblage of freaks and crooks… boobs and undesirables.” [98] Walt Kelly‘s Pogo was likewise censored in 1952 over his overt satire of Senator Joe McCarthy, caricatured in his comic strip as “Simple J. Malarky”. 
Garry Trudeau, whose comic strip Doonesbury focuses on satire of the political system, and provides a trademark cynical view on national events. Trudeau exemplifies humour mixed with criticism. For example, the character Mark Slackmeyer lamented that because he was not legally married to his partner, he was deprived of the “exquisite agony” of experiencing a nasty and painful divorce like heterosexuals. This, of course, satirized the claim that gay unions would denigrate the sanctity of heterosexual marriage.
Political satire by Ranan Lurie
Like some literary predecessors, many recent television satires contain strong elements of parody and caricature; for instance, the popular animated series The Simpsonsand South Park both parody modern family and social life by taking their assumptions to the extreme; both have led to the creation of similar series. 
As well as the purely humorous effect of this sort of thing, they often strongly criticise various phenomena in politics, economic life, religion and many other aspects of society, and thus qualify as satirical. Due to their animated nature, these shows can easily use images of public figures and generally have greater freedom to do so than conventional shows using live actors.

Fake News

Fake News is also a very popular form of contemporary satire, appearing in as wide an array of formats as the news media itself: print (e.g. The Onion, Canada News Network, Private Eye), “Not Your Homepage,[99]” radio (e.g. On the Hour), television (e.g. The Day Today, The Daily Show, Brass Eye) and the web (e.g. Mindry.in, The Fruit Dish, Scunt News,[100] Faking News, El Koshary Today, The Giant Napkin,[101] Unconfirmed Sources[102] and The Onion’s website). 
Other satires are on the list of satirists and satires. Another internet-driven form of satire is to lampoon bad internet performers. An example of this is the Internet meme character Miranda Sings.[103][104]
In an interview with Wikinews, Sean Mills, President of The Onion, said angry letters about their news parody always carried the same message. “It’s whatever affects that person”, said Mills. “So it’s like, ‘I love it when you make a joke about murder or rape, but if you talk about cancer, well my brother has cancer and that’s not funny to me.’ Or someone else can say, ‘Cancer’shilarious, but don’t talk about rape because my cousin got raped.’ Those are rather extreme examples, but if it affects somebody personally, they tend to be more sensitive about it.[105]
Zhou Libo, a comedian from Shanghai, is the most popular satirist in China. His humour has interests middle-class people and has sold out shows ever since his rise to fame.

Techniques

Literary satire is usually written out of earlier satiric works, reprising previous conventions, commonplaces, stance, situations and tones of voice.[106] Exaggeration is one of the most common satirical techniques.[3]

Legal status

For its nature and social role, satire has enjoyed in many societies a special freedom license to mock prominent individuals and institutions.[20] In Germany,[107] and Italy[17][108] satire is protected by the constitution.
Since satire belongs to the realm of art and artistic expression, it benefits from broader lawfulness limits than mere freedom of information of journalistic kind.[108] In some countries a specific “right to satire” is recognized and its limits go beyond the “right to report” of journalism and even the “right to criticize.”[108] Satire benefits not only of the protection to freedom of speech, but also to that to culture, and that to scientific and artistic production.[17][108]

Censorship and criticism of satire

Descriptions of satire’s biting effect on its target include ‘venomous’, ‘cutting’, ‘stinging’,[109]vitriol. Because satire often combines anger and humor, as well as the fact that it addresses and calls into question many controversial issues, it can be profoundly disturbing.

Typical arguments

Because it is essentially ironic or sarcastic, satire is often misunderstood. A typical misunderstanding is to confuse the satirist with his persona.[110]

Bad taste

Common uncomprehending responses to satire include revulsion (accusations of poor taste, or that “it’s just not funny” for instance), to the idea that the satirist actually does support the ideas, policies, or people he is attacking. For instance, at the time of its publication, many people misunderstood Swift’s purpose in A Modest Proposal, assuming it to be a serious recommendation of economically motivated cannibalism.

Targeting the victim

Some critics of Mark Twain see Huckleberry Finn as racist and offensive, missing the point that its author clearly intended it to be satire (racism being in fact only one of a number of Mark Twain’s known concerns attacked in Huckleberry Finn).[111][112] This same misconception was suffered by the main character of the 1960s British television comedy satire Till Death Us Do Part
The character of Alf Garnett (played by Warren Mitchell) was created to poke fun at the kind of narrow-minded, racist, little Englander that Garnett represented. Instead, his character became a sort of anti-hero to people who actually agreed with his views. The same thing happened in regard to the main character in the American TV Show All in the Family, Archie Bunker.
The Australian satirical television comedy show The Chaser’s War on Everything has suffered repeated attacks based on various perceived interpretations of the “target” of its attacks. The “Make a Realistic Wish Foundation” sketch (June 2009), which attacked in classical satiric fashion the heartlessness of people who are reluctant to donate to charities, was widely interpreted as an attack on the Make a Wish Foundation, or even the terminally ill children helped by that organisation. 
Prime Minister of the time Kevin Rudd stated that The Chaser team “should hang their heads in shame”. He went on to say that “I didn’t see that but it’s been described to me. …But having a go at kids with a terminal illness is really beyond the pale, absolutely beyond the pale.”[113] Television station management suspended the show for two weeks and reduced the third season to eight episodes.

Romantic prejudice

The romantic prejudice against satire is the belief spread by the romantic movement that satire is something unworthy of serious attention; this prejudice has held considerable influence to this day.[114] Such prejudice extends to humor and everything that arouses laughter, which are often underestimated as frivolous and unworthy of serious study.[115] For instance, humor is generally neglected as a topic of anthropological research and teaching.[116]
History of opposition toward notable satires
Because satire criticises in an ironic, essentially indirect way, it frequently escapes censorship in a way more direct criticism might not. Periodically, however, it runs into serious opposition, and people in power who perceive themselves as attacked attempt to censor it or prosecute its practitioners. In a classic example,Aristophanes was persecuted by the demagogue Cleon.

1599 book ban

In 1599, the Archbishop of Canterbury John Whitgift and the Bishop of London Richard Bancroft, whose offices had the function of licensing books for publication in England, issued a decree banning verse satire. The decree, now known as theBishops’ Ban of 1599, ordered the burning of certain volumes of satire by John Marston,Thomas Middleton, Joseph Hall, and others; it also required histories and plays to be specially approved by a member of the Queen’s Privy Council, and it prohibited the future printing of satire in verse.[117]
The motives for the ban are obscure, particularly since some of the books banned had been licensed by the same authorities less than a year earlier. Various scholars have argued that the target was obscenity, libel, or sedition. It seems likely that lingering anxiety about the Martin Marprelate controversy, in which the bishops themselves had employed satirists, played a role; both Thomas Nashe and Gabriel Harvey, two of the key figures in that controversy, suffered a complete ban on all their works. In the event, though, the ban was little enforced, even by the licensing authority itself.

21st century polemics

In 2005, the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy caused global protests by offended Muslims and violent attacks with many fatalities in the Near East. It was not the first case of Muslim protests against criticism in the form of satire, but the Western world was surprised by the hostility of the reaction: Any country’s flag in which a newspaper chose to publish the parodies was being burnt in a Near East country, then embassies were attacked, killing 139 people in mainly four countries; politicians throughout Europe agreed that satire was an aspect of the freedom of speech, and therefore to be a protected means of dialogue. Iran threatened to start an International Holocaust Cartoon Competition, which was immediately responded to by Jews with an Israeli Anti-Semitic Cartoons Contest.
In 2006 British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen released Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, a “mockumentary” that satirized everyone, from high society to frat boys. The film was criticized by many. Although Baron Cohen is Jewish, some complained that it was antisemitic, and the government of Kazakhstan boycotted the film. The film itself had been a reaction to a longer quarrel between the government and the comedian.
In 2008, popular South African cartoonist and satirist Jonathan Shapiro (who is published under the pen name Zapiro) came under fire for depicting then-president of the ANC Jacob Zuma in the act of undressing in preparation for the implied rape of ‘Lady Justice’ which is held down by Zuma loyalists.[118] The cartoon was drawn in response to Zuma’s efforts to duck corruption charges, and the controversy was heightened by the fact that Zuma was himself acquitted of rape in May 2006. 
In February 2009, the South African Broadcasting Corporation, viewed by some opposition parties as the mouthpiece of the governing ANC,[119] shelved a satirical TV show created by Shapiro,[120] and in May 2009 the broadcaster pulled a documentary about political satire (featuring Shapiro among others) for the second time, hours before scheduled broadcast.[121] Apartheid South Africa also had a long history of censorship.
On December 29, 2009, Samsung sued Mike Breen, and the Korea Times for $1 million, claiming criminal defamation over a satirical column published on Christmas Day, 2009.[122][123]
On April 29, 2015, the UK Independence Party (UKIP) requested Kent Police investigate the BBC, claiming that comments made about Party leader Nigel Farage by a panelist on the comedy show Have I Got News For You might hinder his chances of success in the general election (which would take place a week later), and claimed the BBC breached the Representation of the People Act.[124] 
Kent Police rebuffed the request to open an investigation, and the BBC released a statement, “Britain has a proud tradition of satire, and everyone knows that the contributors on Have I Got News for You regularly make jokes at the expense of politicians of all parties.”[124]

Satirical prophecy

Satire is occasionally prophetic: the jokes precede actual events.[125][126] Among the eminent examples are:
The 1784 presaging of modern daylight saving time, later actually proposed in 1907. While an American envoy to France, Benjamin Franklin anonymously published a letter in 1784 suggesting that Parisians economise on candles by arising earlier to use morning sunlight.[127]
In the 1920s an English cartoonist imagined a laughable thing for the time: a hotel for cars. He drew a multi-story car park.[126]
The second episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, which debuted in 1969, featured a skitentitled “The Mouse Problem” (meant to satirize contemporary media exposés on homosexuality), which depicted a cultural phenomenon eerily similar to modern furry fandom(which did not become widespread until the 1980s, over a decade after the skit was first aired)
The comedy film Americathon, released in 1979 and set in the United States of 1998, predicted a number of trends and events that would eventually unfold in the near future, including an American debt crisis, Chinese capitalism, the fall of the Soviet Union, terrorism aimed at the civilian population, a presidential sex scandal, and the popularity of reality shows.
In January 2001, a satirical news article in The Onion, entitled “Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over”[128] had newly elected President George Bush vowing to “develop new and expensive weapons technologies” and to “engage in at least one Gulf War-level armed conflict in the next four years.” Furthermore, he would “bring back economic stagnation by implementing substantial tax cuts, which would lead to a recession.” This prophesies the Iraq War and to the Bush tax cuts.
In 1975, the first episode of Saturday Night Live included an ad for a triple blade razor called the Triple-Trac; in 2001, Gillette introduced the Mach3. In 2004, The Onion satirized Schick and Gillette’s marketing of ever-increasingly multi-blade razors with a mock article proclaiming Gillette will now introduce a five-blade razor.[129] In 2006, Gillette released the Gillette Fusion, a five-blade razor.

Try Not To Laugh At The Dalai Lama’s Answer To A Question From The Audience 
Often considered one of the most influential and inspirational people in the world, the Dalai Lama is one of the most well-known spiritual leaders. Born Lhamo Thondup in 1935, in Taktser, China, he has been the Dalai Lama since the young age of 15, declared the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama by religious officials at age 2. When he assumed the title, he was renamed Tenzin Gyatso and took political power of Tibet briefly before China invaded. Among his many other great works, he advocates for an autonomously governed Tibet.
With such an air of destiny to his story, you would think that the Dalai Lama is a very serious and spiritual man. While this is true, he is also known to be incredibly personable and a fantastic public speaker. He captivates audiences all around the world, and he’s not afraid to crack a joke every now and then, like he does in the video above. Try not to giggle at his silly response to an audience member’s question.
The Dalai Lama, humorous, oh snap” 
There is another story about the Dalai Lama, which is even deeper. 
One day, Dalai Lama was listening to a monk who had just come out of Tibet and was telling him in awful detail, about all of the torturing, killing raping and inhumanity that the people and monks were suffering at the hands of the Chinese occupiers in Tibet. As he was telling this in graphic detail, Dalai Lama was laughing. 
But he was not laughing AT the monk, nor was he laughing out of nervousness or repressed sadness/anger. Dalai Lama was laughing from a very DEEP place of pure conscioussness, where God resides. In other words, every human is God, infinite and pure Oneness, joy, peace, love and light. But since humans have forgotten this, and are stuck in the illusion that they can suffer, torture and kill each other, it is actually quite funny to see humans acting this way, when they are forgetting their divine heritage or destiny. 
No one can be killed, nothing can be taken away, and there is no way to ‘lose’ anything, but in our true essence, we are immortal beings, made in the image of God, and that is our true home and destiny. Everything else that humanity wastes time on, is just to get the contrast, the opposite and to learn the lesson of what we are not. 
Dalai Lama was laughing at the divine comedy of humans thinking and acting in a way that is so tiny, so fragmented, like a TV show where actors are acting on a stage, and pretending to be someone else. Humanity can keep on practicing and pretending to be something that they are not, but in the end, the comedy show must go on and everyone will get the joke and LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH, at how silly we have all been acting for soooooo long.
