On the very day 12 persons were killed at the Charlie Hebdo offices in 2013, I found it worth reposting a cartoon (en anglais!) from Luz attempting to explain why political satire has to go “too far” to expose dysfunctions in societies, invasions of creeds and the irrational, hypocritical double-talk from governments, and whatever other ideas it aims at criticising.

“Religion, a mediaeval form of unreason, when combined with modern weaponry becomes a real threat to our freedoms. This religious totalitarianism has caused a deadly mutation in the heart of Islam and we see the tragic consequences in Paris today. I stand with Charlie Hebdo, as we all must, to defend the art of satire, which has always been a force for liberty and against tyranny, dishonesty and stupidity. ‘Respect for religion’ has become a code phrase meaning ‘fear of religion.’ Religions, like all other ideas, deserve criticism, satire, and, yes, our fearless disrespect.” Salman Rushdie

ils ont tué Cabu, Charb, Wolinski, et les autres de Charlie!!!
