Do the cartoonists really care about the problems of our society? What are the roots of the terrorism, radicalism, crime, violence, inequality, poverty, and wars? It does not take a lot of intelligence and wisdom to understand that in “bad hands” religion can be (and often IS) abused to become a deadly destructive weapon, leading masses to fratricidal wars, violance and murder. Just like mass media can be (and often IS) used by corporations-controlled governments to brain-wash their people, to generate controllable hatred, to unleash wars in Midle East. As well as to control their own citizens by implementing “anti-terroristic” measures allowing them total control over freedom of their citizens! So do we have to get rid of religion and get rid of mass media? Or do we have to adopt a system that will not encourage abuse for the sake of profits by elites? Mass media that has lucrative interests in generating hatred-controlled masses instead of solving the real problems, is not promoting “freedom of speech” but rather is engaged in a form of political prostitution.
