It's not a happy new year



A happy new year, is a new year full of happiness. But this is not the reality on Earth. It may be a happy celebration for your and your family, and all others who are lucky enough to celebrate it comfortably.
But I can't fake it. I don't find the new year happy, even if that makes me a party pooper. I also don't celebrate it in particular. Yes I go eat with my family, but I don't stay up waiting for 12 o'clock. I was tired so I went to be at 9.30 PM.
Also my dad ordered all kinds of seafood to make food for him and my mom, brother and his girlfriend. A part of it were 2 live lobsters, squashed on each other in a plastic bag, 1 had a leg ripped out. It really put me in a down mood and to be honest, it made me really angry.

I get angry because of the way we celebrate, by the abuse and death of other living creatures. Some call it "delicacies", I call it murder. Place yourself as the lobster, or the duck. How would you feel? Because animals can feel, make friends, live together, even fight and suffer. They have their own way of existing and expressing themselves, just as we have ours.

New year is not happy at all for these animals.

Here, have some delicious luxurious foie gras


Or a fancy lobster


Or a lamb chop



Also for many people the new year can't even be celebrated. The many that live in hidden poverty, and the many who live in obvious poverty. The child soldiers, the children forced into prostitution, the families running from war, the sweatshop workers, the starving and the ones totally deprived of any opportunity to get a better life.



You may call be a pessimist, and I wish I was but I am not. I am a realist, because this is all happening and it is not getting any happier. And if you would be celebrating 2 meters away from people in the conditions mentioned above, you would feel the same way. But now we don't because we live in our bubbles, apart, separated, not seeing and being pre-occupied with ourselves.

The world should be a fun place for all, something where we can truly celebrate and be happy about what we have achieved as a collective. That is why I support a living income, that is why a drastic change is necessary.
