I disclosed to him, that my gravest concern regarding IMMAT, is that technology of this magnitude could one day be used as as a force for evil in the world. No doubt, emotions of this sort were felt by the developers of the atom bomb.
However, my friend served to help me define the difference between satire and sarcasm:
- Satire: is a technique of writing or art which exposes the follies of its subject (for example, individuals, organizations, or states) to ridicule, often as an intended means of provoking or preventing change. The humor of satire tends to be subtle, using irony and deadpan humour liberally.
- Sarcasm: is sneering, jesting, or mocking a person, situation or thing.....Use of sarcasm is sometimes viewed as an expression of concealed anger, negativity, or rage.
It is clear that IMMAT seeks to follow such rich traditions.
This is the brilliance of IMMAT....a force for good and not for evil.
