10 Reasons Why Humour can be Used as a Truthing Tool

A laughing lion?

k

I personally only feel comfortable with using humour in this subject as one would use herbs in cooking. Just a pinch here and there. Being sensitive of the individual’s position. Being mindful of what resonance it may leave. It’s getting that fine balance between trivializing the Truth and getting the message across. If used respectfully and appropriately; it can be a powerful tool at our disposal.

[these are all interrelated]

1/. Help ease personal angst

This can be our pressure valve. Help prevent the disabling effects of depression. Help keep the darkness at bay. If we get caught up in the doldrums – that’s it; we lose our energy, our fighting-back power. So we have to keep going. Humour can act as a brilliant tonic in these times. We all need a momentary pick-me-up.

2/. Help ease other’s angst 

Providing it is used sensitively with appropriate timing, it can help lighten the load for others. I don’t know anyone out there who is not suffering in these dark times. Everybody is to some degree. So if we can help ease the cogs a bit, to stop others totally getting ground down with this darkness, through some appropriate humour – then it is a very useful tool. I think the trick is to allow that person to see your intent is well meaning.

3/. To help prevent people switching off

This point relates more for a one-to-one basis when trying to impart the Truth. It’s a hard old slog getting this stuff across, as we’re dealing with a heavy, distasteful subject matter. So when we sense someone isn’t perhaps receptive to politics, history, or current affairs. We can lighten things up a bit with a bit of tasteful humour. If used with sufficient timing, it can help prevent someone from switching off. It can repackage our message, to make it that bit more appealing. [See also 9/.]

4/. Help people get it

We don’t get it until we get it. So similar to 3/., but sometimes even though the person may not be disinterested; they just don’t have ears to hear and eyes to see. They just can’t get it. So in some instances this is where the power of analogies or/and humour come in.

5/. To break down divisional interests  

To reach common ground within the ranks. One group is screaming blue and the other screaming red. A bit of appropriately placed humour may help just defuse the tension and allow us to try and make compromises, agree on minor areas, or amicably agree to disagree. And ultimately get us to see the bigger picture.

6/. As a weapon to deflate power

Oy vey, oy vey, your another one of those filthy anti-semites. This is such a ludicrous accusation, that we should just milk it dry. Take it to it’s max and burn it out. So it no longer has any clout, so it no longer sticks. We should also mock the fable of the holohoax. And use sarcasm, irony and good ol dry humour to completely pinprick these buoyant arrogant lies. Therefore totally defusing the power of these nonsensical slanders, but in a non-aggressive manner.

7/. To act as a neutralizer with our enemy

This area is extremely close to 5/. except that this can be specifically used in a heated debate when dealing with a tribe member, to defuse a heated debate. I’m not saying you’ll ever win over them – this never is the case. Because you can never ever use logic. But in some instances, in some environments it may be a handy tool, just to tamper the heat a little.

8/. A method of defusing fear

Humour is great to help us to personally override fear. Similar to 1/. it is a coping method. But it also a defiant tool. Both to prove to ourselves and our enemy that we are in fact no longer afraid of their threats. Directly related to 6/. in that it’s a way of showing our middle finger, in defiance to the threats of our adversaries. We laugh in their faces, killing two birds with one laugh.

9/. A method of advertising the Truth

It is an ugly business we’re in. It’s tough getting new recruits for the cause. People have been so conditioned to have their Pavlovian rewards and conditioned with relentless entertainment and trivial stimulants. So as in 3/. on a one-on-one, we can use humour in a general sense for the benefit of the movement. So long as we don’t run the risk of trivializing the important message; a tad of humour here n there can make the TM that bit more attractive.

10/. Stop us taking ourselves too seriously

Humour can often be a great ego diffuser. It can help get things into perspective. We’re not that important after all. A pinch of humour has the great effect of bringing us right back down to earth.
