“Is Politics a Laughing Matter?” (hybrid)

The 2024 Presidential election is an existential challenge for democracy. For many, thinking about it generates dread. Often, we seek relief in political satire. Laughter can ease anxiety and lower harmful cortisol levels. Humor also can be a potent political tool to resist those who scare us. Nothing disempowers playground bullies as much as being laughed at. Hugh Taft-Morales explores how the deadly serious game of politics can also be a laughing matter.

Hugh Taft-Morales serves as Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society and the Baltimore Ethical Society and is a member of the Ethical Action Committee of the American Ethical Union (AEU).  Hugh taught philosophy and history for twenty-five years in Washington, D. C., after which he transitioned into Ethical Culture Leadership.  In April of 2009 he graduated from the Humanist Institute and was certified as an Ethical Culture Leader by the AEU in 2010.
