Part of being a superior culture is having superior art and architecture. However, it shouldn’t come at the expense of needful things. It’s disappointing, though, that conservatives line up to celebrate mediocrity.
if you have to waste taxpayer dollars to be a ‘superior’ culture, you ain’t. a ‘superior’ culture is one in which the government does not engage in grandiosity, but keeps things humble and efficient.
now if YOU wanted to spend YOUR money on something grandiose and foolish, then go right ahead.
