I'm writing (ok, trying to write)about some very controversial topics in my current novel. This includes such things as organized religion, war, the notion of freedom. Im offering a very bleak philosophy of utter hopelessnes in the novel, but I'm wondering how to approach these subjects. I'm trying to write about them in an over the top satirical manner, using quite a bit of the 'south park' humor. I think I can get away with saying a lotta things If I write my ideas in the form of a satire. At the same time, I'm afraid that the ideas won't be taken that seriously if I offer a very over the top humorous take on them. What do you guys suggest?
