At Silicon Valley, I'm extremely sympathetic to the revolutionary response.
I not only agree with it emotionally. I agree with it practically. And the only thing I disagree with is, I don't think Donald Trump is that. Trump is blow it up for no good reason at all. You want to actually do revolution with a target, with an idea, with building a new system.

Satire is an art best practiced behind the back of the intended target.
I think inviting politicians on a satirical show becomes a very big trap.

Or you don't defang, and those guests get the word and they stop coming.

Power is not a matter of one dominant individual or institutions, but instead manifests in interconnected, contradictory sites where regimes of knowledge and practice circulate and take hold. This way of understanding the dispersion of power helps us realize that power is not simply about certain individuals being targeted for death or exclusion by a ruler, but instead about the creation of norms that distribute vulnerability and security.
