I think of by first creating a thesis type of deal of what a satire is and then breaking down what a satire is composited of. Then just go ahead and define each aspect of a satire and provide an illustration like an example of South Park or other works and their episodes.
How would anybody deal with them?
I know this is an old discusssion, but I really like the topic, so I am going to comment. I think of the Nintendo Wii episode, where Cartman freezes himself so he can be waken when the Wii comes out because he can't stand waiting. He ends up in the future and everyone is Athiest. Richard Dawkins and Miss Garrison had convinced everyone to be athiests. Well, a very known argument that athiests like to make is that religion is responsible for most wars. Granted there are numerous wars through history that were created from religious beliefs and today war based on religion is destroying peoples freedoms and rights to enjoy life without the treat of violence. In the episode there are three main athiest groups that are at war with each other because they cannot agree on what they should be called. So, even if religion was removed from the world, it would not end war.
I think SP is Satrical, but it's great because we can see the views of different beliefs, and I think that more people can actually understand the less tension between people and their beliefs. I think if people are just crazy about religion and other beliefs they threaten others and try to force their own will on to other people rather than trying to respect other peoples views. Or they just like to show how funny some beliefs are. But we can still grow from it.
