In the contemporary meaning of the term, #comedy is any discourse or work generally intended to be humorous or to amuse by inducing laughter. In the Athenian democracy, the public opinion of voters was influenced by the political satire performed by the comic poets at the theaters. A later view of comedy is a struggle between a relatively powerless youth and the societal conventions that pose obstacles to society. In this struggle, the youth is understood to be constrained by lack of social authority, and is left with little choice but to take recourse in ruses with reference to punching a naked snowman in the face.
Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth or compassion against injustice. As a society we are suffering as the rich elite steal from the public purse and innocent people are murdered for oil profit. The bankers that caused our current financial crisis walk freely among us in the society they so blatantly stole from. They have the politicians, judges and police in their pockets so nobody is ever held accountable. Corporations make billions of profit while destroying the planet and they very often pay no tax. If people stood up and agreed we need to find a better way to exist, we could change the world.
As Bob Marley the Legend once said “Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don’t give up the fight.”
The Times have claimed Nigel Farage of UKIP is our Briton of the Year… This is about as accurate as me claiming, ”I am a magic unicorn”, says Sandy Andy.
I mean, literally anyone other than Farage would have been a better choice. I don’t understand why that man and his backward party get so much media exposure. They were all over the media before they even had any Parliamentary representation. It’s like they are trying to brainwash the British public. It is a fact that more people support The Green Party but they were not even invited to the political debates on TV. Why? The BBC has rejected a demand from the Green party to be included in the proposed TV leader election debates, saying they have not demonstrated any substantial increase in support. This is complete rubbish.
Their controversial decision caused outrage and protests in the streets as thousands of people marched from the BBC HQ to parliament and now over a quarter of a million people have signed a petition to include the Green Party in the TV Leaders’ Debates ahead of the 2015 General Election.
