I don't know if any of you have been following the twitter storm at  #ISISクソコラグランプリ  but it's brought up some interesting thoughts for me.

Basically, the Japanese public are using visual arts to strip the terrorists of their terror factor. It all dissolves in laughter.

On the one hand there is polemic and propaganda. 

On the other side of that, satire and mockery have the power to restore a sense of balance to the world.

The arts are not, or need not be, just entertainment.
