Read http://www.challengeday.org.

Found the central thesis:


"Is what I am about to say or do going to leave the people affected by it feeling safe, loved and celebrated?"


This reflects the "comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable" principle I use when I'm picking a victim for my comedy. Not all comedy requires a victim, but much of it does. At least with the above principle I can victimize the enemies of safety, love and celebration.


Tell me what you think of this principle.
