Political Satire In The American Society… And Mass Culture

The United States of America is known as one of the most important democracy around the globe. For many other countries, the American democracy is an example that they would like to implement. In each strong democracy, political satire is a manner to dissent and protest against politicians’ actions and behaviour. In the following paragraphs, we will try to speak a little about the political satire in the American society.

Role of political satire

Even if political satire is considered to be funny and is used as entertainment, the role of political satire is to correct those wrong behaviours of politicians and government. Sometimes it is difficult to consider if it is wrong or just it is our opinion, but political satire’s role is to highlight the errors that are made during the government process. Unfortunately, political satire may not provide solutions to these errors; it can only bring to the public attention these errors and create something funny for the audience. Another role of political satire could be education of the future politicians, in order to avoid the mistakes from previous politicians.

First political satires in the American society

The first political satires on the American continent appeared during the first political disputes. Because satire was present in the British society, it has been brought in America. One of the best political satirist was Benjamin Franklin in his work “Rules by Which a Great Empire May Be Reduced to a Small One”. Other methods that were used as political satires of the beginnings of politics in America are cartoons. Cartoons were used at that times and are used even nowadays. An important aspect that supports political satire in the United States of America is that this kind of protest against the politicians is supported by the First Amendment.

How political satire looks like in the modern America society?

The American society has changed and the political satire in the United States has changed. The only thing that is similar is that democracy is still there, in the United States. Nowadays, political satire is strongly related with television. In the modern times, there were many films and televisions shows that have criticized politics by using political satire. The first American satires have been released on television in 1960’s and starting from then these satires have become more and more flourishing. Some of the best known American satires that have been released on television include shows such as “Saturday Night Live”, “Weekend Update” or “The Daily Show” and movies such as “Bananas”, “Bulworth”, “Wag the Dog”, “The Simpsons” or “Our Brand Is Crisis”. These are just part of the most important political satires that were done in the last twenty five years. But the shows that we have mentioned before have more than twenty five years of existences in the politics in the United States.

Mass culture satire on the rise, why?

American mass (pop) culture is full of satire websites dedicated to funny, and sometimes dead serious, issues. For example, in the year of 2017 – satire website of misbehaving nannies appeared on the web and it’s a perfect example of how Americans make joke of different parts of our lives. Be it nanny employment in this example, be it something totally different.

Nowadays, political satire is very used in the United States politics. But this is the proof of a healthy democracy and we are sure that political satire will remain part of the American society for many years to come.

 Evolution of Political Satire during the Time

Our world is governed by politics. All over the globe, people take part in the politics. Some of them take part as actors in politics and some of them just as the audience. Because politicians are not very popular sometimes, the population found a method of entertainment based on politics and in this way appeared the political satire.

Political satire and its beginnings

The appearance of political satire dates from ancient times, from the first types of governments. Even from the first political organizations, the political satire has been used in order to protest or to come with critics against governments. One of the oldest examples of political satire belongs to Aristophanes, who created several comic satires regarding ancient politicians or ancient gods. During the Roman Empire, we may find also some examples of political satire, satires belonging to authors such as Paul of Tarsus or Marcus Valerius Martialis. Political satire in the beginnings has been released as poetry, comedy or epigrams. Political satire was an important method to influence public opinion during the Athenian democracy.

Political satire coming closer to our times

We could speak about political satire in hundreds of pages, but we will try to give here only some headlines. Besides the beginnings of the political satire during the ancient period, there were many other important contributions in this domain during the time. One of the greatest and best known political satires is “Divine Comedy” by Dante Alighieri. In his work, Dante considers that some of the politicians of that period should travel to Hell. Another huge name that has used political satire is William Shakespeare, who used plays such as “Richard II” in order to criticize politics of his times. Mark Twain is another important name in political satire. Even if Mark Twain was considered to be imperialism first, he become anti-imperialism and he choose political satire to express his ideas in his work “King Leopold’s Soliloquy”.

Political satire in the contemporary world

The world has changed very much from the past and even politics are different. Due to this, political satire has to be made totally different and it is done completely different than it was done in the past. If in the past political satire was strongly related with poetry, theater, novels and literature, nowadays political satire is more related with media and television. Politics is on the cover pages of the largest and biggest magazines. Due to this, political satire has to be also there. In the contemporary world, political satire is disseminated to the general public as caricatures, as cartoons, as movies or as stand-up comedies. This method of entertaining based on politics is used both during the election campaign and after the campaign, to criticize government. The internet is used also more and more in political satire, by using social networks like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

We are sure that as long as politicians will exist the political satire will be present in our lives. And we consider that it is a democratic method to criticize government and have some fun.

What You Should Know About Political Satire?

Political satire is very common nowadays and it is one of the most unique sources of entertainment for the general masses. A political satire is basically a sarcastic critique or examination of the political dynamics of a particular country. The main purpose of such satire is to expose the hypocrisy and irrationality of the political personalities or the parties. There are many kinds of political satires that currently exist in the world (which will be discussed later).

Main Targets

The most common entities which are targeted in a political satire are the political parties, politicians, legislation and the political media as well. Political satire can be done in various ways. Sometimes it may simply mean making fun of a political party’s representative such as making fun of his or her dress up etc. In some cases satires are intended to expose a person’s fault. For example political people preaching respect of women are exposed by showing their own misconduct with women etc.

The Greatest Challenge

The biggest challenge while going for political satire is to create a balance between apt political analysis and humor. If the balance is broken and if the satirist makes too many jokes then that can turn out to be an absolute mockery. Similarly a simple political analysis without any comedy at all can also damage the work of a satirist as that will turn out to be a simple political attack.

Forms of Political Satire

As mentioned earlier political satires can take various forms. Political satires have a long history and most of the forms of political satires have been there for centuries.  The first from of political satire can be termed as Prose satire.

Another famous form of political satire is through television shows. In these shows fake news is created and the shows are run as if the news is real. These shows gain popularity usually during the election season.

The Method of Political Satire

7 Continents, 195 countries, and 7.4 Billion people. This is world summed up in numbers. Each country has its own Government, but none of the government has a 100% satisfied nation. In every country there are always some people, or sometimes many, who find flaws in their politicians. Nobody is completely pleased by the political body running their respective countries.People having the freedom of speech, or having a platform through which they can make sure that their voices are heard, is pretty rare. It is quite controversial to openly say something to a politician, either who raises the voice is killed or his/her voice never reaches the politician’s desk. The safer way to get your message through is the political satire. In this way, you’re still saying what you want to, but you target doesn’t feel offended.

Satire is basically done for corrective purposes, it totally not meant to hurt someone’s ego. A critical approach with humor is what satire is. This thing itself is an art, not everyone can do it, and those who can are super cautious while doing it. Media is the biggest medium for political satire. Every now and then you can see parodies of various politicians on TV, or jokes in newspaper. In short there are various methods of Political Satire, few of them are as follows.

Not only the audience finds it funny, but some politicians have alsobeen seen laughing at their imitations.

Moreover Newspapers are no less than a TV in terms of medium. Where TVs don’t reach, papers do. Column Writers (people who write for newspaper) are really good at political satires. Their criticism is much more formal and has a high level of intellect, only people with sound knowledge of politics and current affairs tend to get the writers sarcasm. Though the satire is very subtle, but its impact is quite heavy. Next, you must have seen cartoons of various political heads in newspaper, artist carefully amalgamate a message, humor and sarcasm in a single picture.
