    All I'm gonna say is you wrote this;

    It got me wondering what peoples views are about such things
    Why do you get all pissy when people are doing exactly what you asked then to do?
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Well, what was the intention behind the monument when it went up? Was it to honor something or someone we have since realized was shit, if not always knew was shit? Then taking it down can be a modest expression of something much more important surviving the past and being remembered.

    More important still of course is behaving differently in everyday life and politics, and letting culture evolve for the better. Even removing a monument is still a symbolic gesture, even if it can be an improvement.

    Robert E Lee didnt even want monuments of him put up...so if honoring his memory was really the point...there wouldnt be monuments of him...Trees on the other hand. They make oxygen; help cool the climate and help the water cycle...plus they never owned people. We should plant more trees to honor that...before we become dune sans spice...
    I am the Cat who walks by themself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    They are the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    They are the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is their cousin, and they speak her language;
    but they are more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remember that which she hath forgotten...

    We have to keep statues and shit, otherwise people who don't read books won't be aware of history. Who's that whatshisface dictator man with the weird mustache who did something or other? We need statues of him, lest we forget
    You and whose army?

    Oh right, the guy who didn't respect flags and tried to ban the bible. Yeah, I can't remember his name either.

    I'm very monument agnostic. I don't really get them. If people want to tear them down they should go to museums.
