Hopefully there'll be a few more vegetarians on the menu by the time this one's ingested into the milieu. We want equality for minorities, but who's going in to bat for the pigs? There needs to be a constant stream of criticism constantly pelting away at these bastards just to get them to pay attention. "Feast Day" pulls no punches, taking aim at farmers, politicians, and meat-eaters in general, and delivering a blow for the little guys, the pigs, who's good karma collectively far surpasses that of humanity per capita. If you're not a vegan, then you're not safe; and if you eat bacon, you've got porcine DNA!
This story can raise awareness and save a few innocent bystanders from those bloodletting murderers who live off the suffering and misery caused by the current consumer-capitalist paradigm which is, as we all know, goes without saying, ludicrous, preposterous when it comes to looking out for the long-term sustainability of species. But one person CAN make a difference. Change starts on an individual level. How can you expect the government to stop going to war when you wage war on yourself and in your own house every day? This story gives them a much needed kick in the ginger, lacking the ethics to defend themselves from just such an attack as they do.
In this Merry Melody set on Mars, Mayfair Pig comes into his own, leading the revolution against the farm's human masters and setting free the rainbow chicken hybrids that have been engineered there.
