The History of Satire and Parody:
The Oxford dictionary defines satire as "the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices,
particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues."
Satire, it is said, has existed at every place and time where there has been government, religion, or any type of social structure.
Researchers have found examples of satire in texts from as far back as ancient Egypt and ancient Greece.
Parody is a form of satire which is (as the Oxford dictionary defines it) "an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist,
or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect."
Parody is considered such an important form of free speech that US Copyright laws have a specific "fair use" exemption for parody.
I created this website to lampoon the ridiculous behavior I see in politics today.
My goal is not necessarily to offend anyone, but to amuse myself as well as people who are like-minded. However, I am not overly concerned if someone is offended.
If something I've posted does offend you, please ask yourself why you find the post offensive, but not the behavior that post is making fun of.
Also ask yourself if your opponents exhibited that same behavior, would that be acceptable to you?
Prompting that sort of thinking would be the best possible achievement for this website.
