Daily Show, The Colbert Report to name a few are some of the shows that influence people on how they should react to the US government. Comedy, for that matter, has become one of the most efficient tools of getting through to people and telling idiots THEY'RE WRONG. Is it the same in your country? Is comedy just for "fun" where you live or do you sometimes go over the things you laughed at?

Tyrants hate laughter directed at them. Just ask Xinnie the Pooh and Ra-ra-ras-Putin.

Liberal political late night comedy paved the way for all those unfunny right wingers like Steven Crowder and the entire right wing alternative media which in turn spawned the leftist grifter twitch streamer ecosystem. Memes over politics has been the dominant political discourse for two decades now. Most posters here cannot remember or even imagine
what the landscape was like before that. People who "like politics" would likely fall asleep watching 90s CSPAN. So, thanks a lot, Jon Stewart.

>>7 Even if the people don't really make the decisions as much anymore, they certainly do justify them, and so they need to pander to them. I mean, we're on a platform that gives feedback as soon as anyone gives two shits, so as humans we're not totally immune to it either.
