Political Satire

1

Political satire is a significant part of satire that specializes in gaining entertainment from politics; it has also been used with subversive intent where political speech and dissent are forbidden by a regime, as a method of advancing political arguments where such arguments are expressly forbidden.

Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government, or society itself into improvement.

Politics is the process of making decisions applying to all members of each group.

Political satire is usually distinguished from political protest or political dissent, as it does not necessarily carry an agenda nor seek to influence the political process.

A protest is an expression of bearing witness on behalf of an express cause by words or actions with regard to particular events, policies or situations.

Political dissent refers to any expression designed to convey dissatisfaction with or opposition to the policies of a governing body.
