Last Night Of The Proms.
Despite the brouhaha being so gross, the end result was still stirring. The animal instinct to herd together to face all that life holds dangerous as well as joyful, resounded still. Music supplying the emotional need beautifully no matter the ugly nature of today's social failings.
Pride in the good, loathing of the bad, so powerful in these words, music and memories of a people who forced the powerful to attack slavery. Delivered the World from the Nazis and partnered the USA in defeating the barbaric scourge of Japanese cruelty and evil.
We, all the decent peoples of the West and humanity, have earnt our right to seek approbation for our successes, humility for our failings. We need no lessons from the fools of the present. Our learning from history was painful enough. Allow some freedom to those who preserved it.
