Laughing at dictatorship

“A dictator can be hated, despised, or feared,” … “The only thing he cannot survive is being laughed at.”

Seriously, this is indeed a serious subject, and laughter is a serious weapon.  How did Great Britain keep the fascists out in the 1930’s?  By laughing at them in the press via cartoons of goose-stepping jack-booted twits.  Maybe more laughter is exactly what we need!
