Will Self on The Purpose of Satire

Will Self finds himself driven to reconsider the nature and purpose of satire in the wake of the murders at Charlie Hebdo in Paris. "The paradox is this: if satire aims at the moral reform of a given society it can only be effective within that particular society; and furthermore only if there's a commonly accepted ethical hierarchy to begin with. A satire that demands of the entire world that it observe the same secularist values as the French state is a form of imperialism like any other.".

Polygamy IS in the Bible - Christians Stop Being SCARED of Liberals

Age of Consent for Jews and Christians?

Sharia Law against terrorism

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam
