Normalization. Exhaustion. Coping.

All three are relevant to the world we live in, the times we inhabit. How do we prevent normalization without being exhausted and while coping with our current reality? It is a tricky balancing act.

Comedy is part of how we cope. The comedy can reduce the shock factor of current events, normalization.

The sheer pace of events, of what the fuck moments, leads to a tendency to want to disengage for a moment or two, for a vacation fr0m events. Otherwise, we have exhaustion. Part of how we cope. Being disengaged, ignoring the world, can lead to normalization.

When you are exposed to a set of circumstances continually over time, it is natural for those events to become common. The trick is to not get used to them. To continue to fight in your own way.
