Hatred is an Evil of the Heart, Not A Block of Stone or Metal

You can remove all the monuments you want, it won’t solve anything. Evil lies within the hearts of men, not images of stone and metal.

    But isn’t it better to not lead people astray? A monument or a building name is a statement that the person is worthy of being respected or emulated for some reason. The underlying injustice will take a long time to expunge, once we get out of the habit of complacency and not doing things that make us uncomfortable. One has to start somewhere.

      i agree and am ok with all such monuments going the way of the dodo bird. but even if that happens, it won’t change anything. the problem isn’t the thing- it’s what motivates devotion to the ideas related to the thing.
