Is political satire useful in a non-democratic society?
I am currently researching my Masters dissertation / thesis on 'Chinese Satire', and the obstacles in the way of Chinese satirists.
One obstacle that I am particularly interested in is whether or not political satire has any use in a non-democratic society, such as China, and, speaking more broadly, any society, democratic or otherwise.
I would love to hear some opinions on the matter.
