Read comics, at least need to know should be how to ridicule, satire of society, mocking side injustice things, this is the cartoonist plays an important role: justice and injustice for you to have a my own judgment. For disadvantaged groups, the nouveau riche, for money, what kind of attitude you hold? How are you going to voice and criticism?
