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. 

London calling

London calling to the zombies of death

London calling and I don’t want to shout

The Clash, 1979
