Enjoy New Year’s fireworks while you can. The politically correct intelligentsia has proclaimed them to be uncouth — or as Charles Purcell puts it in the Sydney Morning Herald, “a tasteless display of human excess” and “the worst of human hubris.”
Fireworks even oppress the animals. The annual fireworks over Sydney are spectacular, but…
…it is also possible to behold another view of the fireworks — one through less human-centric eyes.
Because the fireworks also provoke the mass flight of terrified bats from the city. There are silhouettes of startled birds, scared out of their nests. There are the howls of dogs from under their humans’ beds.
All so we can have our yearly bread and circus in the sky.
There are also neurotic snowflakes to think about. If “aggressive scents” are enough to trigger them, imagine what fireworks might inflict upon their hypersensitive nerves.
My sympathies go to the people who may find the fireworks traumatic.
Good thing we have self-righteous moonbat killjoys to put an end this outrage. Expect legislation to follow soon.
