"the crude satire seems to be directed at the fashionable protest singers of the time" -the first thing on google search
I bet most people I know just think SNL when they think “satire”. Come to find out, most of the people I know, including myself, still believe that everyone thinks like we do. It’s just not so. And I personally, am in love with the opportunity to learn more about what other people in the world believe about satire and its usage in media and messaging.
For me, I use it intentionally in my messaging when delivering certain messages, but not exclusively. I like using satire in my work because I can still deliver strong messages and further to my point, do so knowingly in one context, therefore illustrating my awareness and acceptance that there are more context’s to consider when interacting with others.
