Today let’s dive into the thing our society needs: humor. What makes things funny? Why is humor in short supply in our culture today?
“Everything human is pathetic. The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven.”
Individual: I think humor is good for the soul. I like to say, “If you can’t laugh at it, you can’t live with it.” Humor is a way to remind oneself to be humble and to find joy in it. It opens people up to the reality of the world around them.
Community: A community can bond together based on a common sense of humor. It would allow people to come together and have the ability to not get hung up on problems.
Society: Our society has a lack of a sense of humor. The award shows, comedians, and people all over can’t allow themselves to be honest about comedy. Our society has no ability to laugh at things or enjoy humor. I think a little humor and humility could go a long way.
