The Third Law of Satire: the satirist knows his subjects like the butcher knows the cow. In this case the abhorrent and unfathomable cruelty of the Prazydent of the DSA is mirrored in the satirically oversized cruelty of the ‘plan’. The idea of the Saudi 24 is absurd, but so are the death of Kashoggi, the orthodoxies of the Saudi regime, the killings in Jemen with Weapon systems delivered by NATO allies and the opportunistic unethical ‘friendship’ between this cruel regime and many Western governments.

The Fourth Law of Satire: anything goes (cf Feyerabend on scientific method).
