5Percentage of Questionable Content
America is a tune. It must be sung together. ~Gerald Stanley LeeFirst off, the amount of anti-government propaganda produced by Cracked is really rather small; for every scathing tirade we publish regarding the injustices inflicted upon the common man by a corrupt empire, there are precisely eighteen thousand essays about why we, as grown men, still care deeply about action figures. In terms of sheer volume, the amount of treacherous content that the Cracked engine belches out from its furnace of rapier-witted man-boys is entirely negligible. Even if our readers were stirred to action by our sterling words of shining brilliance, please keep in mind that Cracked updates daily, and that the next day’s call to action will likely come in the form of a Steven Seagal Ponytail Retrospective.
4Likelihood of Revolutionary Action
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle. ~George William Curtis As Cracked authors, we primarily write for a demographic of twenty-something middle-class white males - notoriously the most content and apathetic demographic imaginable, falling just short of post-orgasmic Pillsbury Doughboy on the “likelihood of revolutionary action” scale. I could post absolute, irrefutable proof that every single government conspiracy from the JFK assassination to the fake moon landing was true and, unless this proof was well under 1500 words and all on one page, not one single person would actually read the entire thing. The atrocities and injustices that, in other gathering places, would single handedly spark a revolution will, within these relatively sticky halls, be simply considered ‘tl' and thusly 'dr.'
