    1. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, andsome have greatness thrust upon ’em.

      Malvolio's self righteous personality is shown through this phrase. He mentions that "some have greatness thrust upon 'em," referring to his view that he is destined for nobility and eminence. He speaks of himself in third person displaying the egoism that he contains. After Malvolio finds the letter that he believes was written by Olivia, he automatically assumes that it is from Olivia and that its true that Olivia wants him to declare his love. This displays the theme of how desire can make someone a fool. Malvolio's egoism as well as his desire for Olivia makes him do all of the foolish things that the letter told him to.

      Comedy/sarcasm/satire is often viewed as a means of avoiding real issues, but I agree that these can be key societal preparatory tools when revolutionary change is needed. Looking forward to Yomna's work!

    1. Man kann es aber auch schade finden, dass in "PussyTerror TV" der rote Haltungsfaden fehlt.

      Sobald also Kebekus über Sachen herzieht, die Rützel nicht gut findet, fehlt Kebekus der rote Faden. Was erdreistet sich diese Kebekus eigentlich, ihren eigenen Humor zu haben, anstatt komplett auf Mainstream-Propaganda-Linie einzuschwenken? Frau Rützel, ihr Verständnis von Meinungsvielfalt ist wirklich bemerkenswert!
