How to use absurdity in a sentence?

  1. Vladimir Putins:

    Neither the authorities nor any groups of citizens have the right to violate the law and carry the situation to the point of absurdity or cause scuffles with the authorities, this is against the law, and all who committed these violations have to be held accountable under the Russian law.

  2. Joseph Addison:

    An ostentatious man will rather relate a blunder or an absurdity he has committed, than be debarred from talking of his own dear person.

  3. Aldous Huxley:

    A country which proposes to make use of modern war as an instrument of policy must possess a highly centralized, all-powerful executive, hence the absurdity of talking about the defense of democracy by force of arms. A democracy which makes or effectively prepares for modern scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic.

  4. Agnes Repplier:

    People who cannot recognize a palpable absurdity are very much in the way of civilization.

  5. James Scott:

    We’re talking about the fate of our economy and the questionable resiliency of our Nation’s critical infrastructure. Why are experts so polite, patient, and forgiving when talking about cybersecurity and National Security? The drama of each script kiddie botnet attack and Nation State pilfering of our IP has been turned into a soap opera through press releases, sound bites and enforced absurdity of mainstream media. It’s time for a cybersecurity zeitgeist in the West where cyber hygiene is a meme that is aggressively distributed by those who have mastered it and encouraged to be imitated by those who have experienced it.
