This is why neo libs were pissed off because the joke was mostly on them these past couple of seasons. Always thought this whole PC and White Nationalism crap was slick marketing to sell to fools. Yeah, WN is also being trendy with certain bastions of right wingers. There are talking heads who actually profit off it, biggest being Fox News. PC culture was meant for specific types of people to hide the shame that they're just as bigoted and misogynist as the people the call out but pretend to be the good guys.
Except... Southpark's philosophy is predicated on the perspective of two very rich Hollywood big-hitters. The assumption of hypocrisy, the assumption that every political movement or protestor is complaining of a theoretical, distant problem, is that to Trey and Parker, they are indeed distant problems. It's to their credit that they can see the hypocrisy, but they're firmly rooted in it and see it before anything else.
its incredible because when you argue one of your ideas you only bring facts in support of it but never gainst. for example, i would still hate big guys who are actually into helping and society because they will have even more puss, so it's better if they stay rude big idiots.
For all the Big Ideas and piping hot takes South park wanted to make this season, they left out the most important thing: provide a better answer for this shit.
Okay, so gentrification and some social justice movements/"pc culture" are, in their eyes, ineffective at best and performative at worst. cool story bros, but then what's the suggestion for marginalized groups being shit on by the systems that are deeply rooted in government, society, and corporations? All they do is go "this is bad!" no fucking shit sherlock, so what's your suggestion? By calling out "callout culture" and pc movements, they themselves are just doing performative callouts of their own, and not actually doing or saying anything to try and make the world a better place.
It's like the douche/turd sandwich episode seasons before. they COULD have gone into detail about how a two party system came to be the norm (aka, the current system of first-past-the-post voting and the electoral college) and how it'd require radical change to solve it (such as destroying the electoral collage or otherwise nullifying it's effects, and changing the system to something like ranked-choice voting), but no, just slap a defeatist message on how the choice will always be between two bad options.
in short, for all the people saying that South park is edgy and pushing the boundaries and have a soapbox, they're really fucking cowards. It's easy to say that something's wrong, it's difficult to properly critique something and provide what you feel are solutions.
You don't see the full picture of this, swing a little far to the left. Journalism isn't supposed to be biased. If you got a liberal arts degree (🤔) why are you trying to comment on a show with such secularism? That kinda shows your facade man. Not such a wise crack
South Park also shows us that PC culture is not all hypocrites. It attracks everybody who wants to do something with an ideal. But the problem is there is no filter for good or bad intentions.
And those with the bad intentions are the loudest.
The people with the real ideals stand in the shadow, bothering no one but also not being heard.
I really hate hypocrites. They're the reason we can't have anything nice.
Me: For over 10 years South Park was the best satire that ever lived. Before the dark times before the
Luke: How did South Park die?
Me: Trey Parker and Matt Stone who were the gods of comedy before they turned to evil they betrayed and murdered South Park. They were seduced by the dark side of comedy bringing PCness and ultimately sealing the show’s fate.
Season 19 was the season that killed South Park it was the beginning of the Dark Times and 3 years later and were still at those dark times. This world is fucked up we can easily not make good stuff come to an end but all of us still fuck up anyway.
I think Matt and Trey cannot explain the message in this season in a better way. (best season since 2015 until now)
Great breakdown of topics and great research for the quotes that you use to define the meaning of certain terms.
I saw that serie two times i thought i had done the total breakdown i was mistaken.
As a person who lives in Venezuela, I see all this, all the things on tv and all the things you americans do, and how us here in Venezuela are sooo different and how we concern for so many different things and I just can think that you all americans are crazy dude

I think Matt Stone and Trey Parker might have read No Logos by Naomi Klein. She released her book around the same time that they started their show and they seem to have a lot of the same criticisms on advertisements influence on our culture
Henry Giroux is a moron. Consumerism is an individual choice and not an obligation. Its equally false that all problems are addressed on a private level. Classical liberalism has a long history of emphasizing voluntary collective action and the freedom not to consume.
You said 'nothing quite fuels the economy as self obsession in mass', but that is false, it literally does not matter what people spend their money or time on. The economy will be fine.
Can south park survive is a sociologic question, not a philosophic question. You are a sociologist who claims to examine philosophy...but what you do is examine the impact of marketing on society...without bothering with real sociology. You don't even bother to properly examine the marketing. You treat it as a result of previously developed philosophies so you can codify and compartmentalize trendy things, in an effort to dismiss them as reproductions. This is what gives me a headache. You aren't teaching people anything. You're indoctrinating them.
fuck me, i couldn't even make to the 1 minute mark on this one. What about south park has ever been or will ever be smart? Seriously?! Their "smartest" season is the one where they actually have a cohesive story to tell throughout the season...it's not smartness that makes that unique in terms of seasons of south park. Lets see what else you've got.
