Cartoons and Puppets in Culture

Puppets and cartoons have a special immunity to behavioural correction and discipline. Like the old court jesters, they can freely show us what we might like to do ourselves but are not allowed to do because we fear social correction.

Notice that some cartoon characters are allowed to viscously attack those they don't agree with, both physically and verbally. These days, we are not allowed to even gently slap someone in response to something they did. The globalists want to remove all peer pressure completely. Citizens are to be simple slaves of the state, without and ability to express opinions on the behaviour of others.
