"Kyse ei ole jumalanpilkasta vaan auktoriteettien kyseenalaistamisesta", selittää filosofi Jason Stanley
Liberaali amerikkalainen filosofi Jason Stanley kirjoittaa NYT:ssä:
"Liberalism is a political philosophy that has as its two chief ideals liberty and equality. In a liberal democracy, all citizens have equal power, because all are possessed of reason, and have the liberty to employ it in expression. In France, which has a right to be considered one of the modern birthplaces of the liberal democratic revolution, satire has long had a special role. Satire is the ultimate method by which reason can address power. With the use of satire, even those without control of resources can, with merely the use of a pen, bring figures of authority down to earth.
