"I've been waiting for years for the staff of The Onion to just throw up their hands and give up trying to keep up with reality. In a world with such absurd people in it, what use is satire?"Voltaire:
Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.
Personally, I still think the Voltaire quote may need to be updated to:
Those who want you to believe absurdities, have already committed the atrocities.
