Chunks of ice the size of Manhattan are falling into the sea and we care about some old church
You're talking about one of the greatest achievements in architecture that the world has ever known - an enduring symbol of not only Paris, but of France itself, that is over 700 years old, with stained glass windows that date back to the 13th century. It is more than just 'some old church'...the fact that it's a church is irrelevant. It has seen the coronation of Napoleon and survived occupation from Nazi Germany.

It isn't a building, it's a work of art. If you can't show any sadness for the razing of such a structure, your heart is also a chunk of ice the size of Manhattan, IMO.

They should knock it down and build some apartment blocks for North African immigrants

Yeah it’s a little bit sad that capitalists couldn’t be bothered spending the money to maintain it. A bit more sad that they’re upset about that rather than widespread homelessness and poverty, the sharp rise of fascism, and the seemingly inevitable climate catastrophe that will absolutely decimate those not wealthy enough to move to a Manhattan surrounded by sea walls.

Sorry but I just don’t have time to feel sad for a building in between being heartbroken every day by stories of the destitute being abandoned (often to their literal deaths) by the wealthy and powerful IN THIS COUNTRY.
