Notre Dame isn't some confederate statue erected in 1970. This was a world history site. We won't get it back. It's a tragedy, let people grieve. We know the RCC was shit, we know France was shit, but Notre Dame wasn't entirely shit. I'd cry if the Taj Mahal collapsed or if the Hagia Sophia was destroyed, it's not all about religion or the West or whatever you want to make it about. Sometimes it's just about the art and history itself.
All of civilization, all of the things we do on this earth are temporary and mortal and it is painful to admit so. Nothing lasts forever, not even these things that feel like they've been here forever.
@starwall Thank you for this.
@starwall well said
@starwall if we were only allowed to appreciate cultural monuments built by woke people we'd have nothing left. everyone fucking sucked and still does. ridiculous and frankly insulting to start policing it here and now.
@LuigiEsq y'all the pyramids are cancelled. symbols of religion. time to blow 'em up.
@starwall Thats my big point its not about religion is about how historally and art wise important Notre Dame is the most important and prominent and the prime example of Gothic Architecture and now its fucking gone
@starwall chances are this is only a temporary set back for it. not much was lost, most of it is still standing and the vast majority of what is lost was under renovation. its perfectly understandable and valid to feel sad about this but remember to have hope cause this isnt the first time its been damage. all the precious items inside and even almost all of the statues on the outside werent there because of renovations - 1/2
@starwall the losses were cut to a minimum due to luck and the renovations from the fire will probably start very soon - 2/2
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
