The axis of evil versus the mocking of self. Humour is a classic form of cultural interruption, and is a greatly undervalued and underanalysed device. Yet humour has some indispensable elements in democracy and peacekeeping. It can defuse tension, it can channel emotions, it can draw people together in a common joke, it can ‘convey a truth safely’, it can forge familiarity across normal power lines. Admittedly, it can also exclude people, if they are outside the shared joke or narrative; but on the whole, I would argue it has enormous potential.
