Ironies of Laughter

by Douglas Jones

We also have to ask why we would consider superiority itself to be funny. Why would delighting in power over something make us laugh? That sounds so tediously secular. Modern secularism is obsessed with power, power relations, fear of power, getting-in power, uncovering power, market power, sleeping with power, power lunches, power moves, empowering power, power tools, and power-ade. They have only this one key on their piano. Secularists force everything into power categories, oblivious to how tiresome that is.
