The only safe place (relatively speaking) left for Critical thinking and truth is comedy. The last refuge which holds itself through plausible deniability.
The rest of the media has been completely overtaken by the powers in charge. The news media has completely assumed the role of propaganda machines. The few journalists who remain are being silenced efficiently.
Comedy is the only venue for reality to coagulate now and soothe the pain of our collective psyches which has to contend with constant hatred, censorship and impotency against excesses of power.
Hence, our present and future leaders are/ will be comedians. Power will gravitate towards comedians. Its time to invest in comedy.
