Political correctness holds sway as no dispensation before, and with nothing more than, well, political correctness; it’s both means and end, in a way. The pre-sixties order in America, still Wasp and Christian, could be publicly skewered. Even Lenny Bruce only ran afoul of authorities for obscenity. But I doubt there’s been a period in America where the prevailing order was this off-limits to satire.
A lot of very talented people and resources are dedicated now to making a sort of fake satire, when they proceed from politically correct assumptions. Witness a recent, lamentable Jon Hamm video about that darn white something-or-other.
If sanity reigned, you would see a lot more of the sort of stuff Sam Hyde does. This is what it’s supposed to look like, for younger people who only came of age in the Age of Poz.
