The Use of Humor

SOURCE:  ...quoted in a eulogy for Andrew Breitbart by James Taranto.


"Humor is essential to a successful tactician, for the most potent weapons known to mankind are satire and ridicule. A sense of humor enables him to maintain his perspective and see himself for what he really is: a bit of dust that burns for a fleeting second. A sense of humor is incompatible with the complete acceptance of any dogma, any religious, political, or economic prescriptions for salvation."--Saul Alinsky, "Rules for Radicals"
