It's easy to make fun of people and their errors especially when you are not related to the issue, but it's a lot more difficult to dig into meaningful issues and work to make positive change.
In the political sphere I notice a lot of people making fun of one another. I'm a big fan of good humor, but I'm not a fan of humor that focuses on making fun of people's personal challenges and traits over and over again. I believe that some choose this kind of fun because it's relatively easy and requires little commitment, time or sacrifice.
It's much more difficult to focus on what really matters--the events and actions that help to make positive change.
