"Satire is meant to ridicule power. If your are laughing at people who are hurting, it's not satire, it's bullying."

Terry Pratchett

"La satire a pour but de ridiculiser le pouvoir. Si vous vous moquez des gens qui sont déjà blessés, ce n'est pas de la satire, c'est du harcèlement."

@lila_bliblu "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."

@basi @lila_bliblu I can criticize politicians, the financial system, lobbies... as I see fit. Collectively, they're still ruling over me and everybody nonetheless.

@lila_bliblu Exactly the reason why most "satire" on 'pc culture' is awful.

@lila_bliblu (j'aime pas trop les œuvres de Pratchett mais c'est une bonne citation de lui pour le coup) (oui, je sais, je suis indigne d'être qualifié de geek)

@lila_bliblu Terry Pratchett, une des rares personnes dont j'ai pleuré la disparition. 😖

@lila_bliblu There's also no satire so obviously mocking that someone won't take it as a defense of their shitty ideas.
