So we had the same outcome we have every year.
Very busy fire service, large fires.
Animals hurt/distress etc etc...
Yet all in the name of a celebration? of an attempted terror plot from 1605?
This year we had documents, videos, games etc being classified as objectionable material (which I agree with, and not the purpose of this thread, there was another thread on that) based on the unfortunate events of early this year in Christchurch.
We have a government "leading" social media on blocking that type of content.
Yet every year, without fail we have the great celebration that spans days and weeks celebrating the terror event of 1605?
The TLDR for those who didn't click on the links above:
The Gunpowder Plot of 1605, was a failed assassination attempt against King James I by a group of provincial English Catholics led by Robert Catesby. The plan was to blow up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament on 5 November 1605... On the evening on 4 November 1605, Fawkes was discovered guarding 36 barrels of gunpowder—enough to reduce the House of Lords to rubble—and arrested
In 1605 they had a religious group, trying to kill the king and wipe out the House of Lords...
So should the we not be banning fireworks based on the terrorist links?
What will we think if in 400 years people are "celebrating" in a similar fashion the Christchurch events?
