A Few Things Ill Considered

Denormalizing the Outrageous

This video crossed my field of vision a couple of times but I did not watch it until I saw it posted again at P3, and I am glad I did.

It is really very effective in that typically satirical way of distilling the true essence of an issue via humor, but for me it also succeeding in turning my amusement into anger.  I have been immersed in this issue for a very long time, and find I do not often get upset by it anymore, an unfortunate attribute of the slow emergency.

Watch the fake advertisement above and maybe cure for yourself that all too human mental defense of normalizing the outrageous…

    This is excellent. Saw it a while ago.

    It has that – first you get irritated, then you laugh – quality of good satire. And, in this case, they move right on into weapons grade ridicule.
