Groups that try to protect historic landmarks & whatnot have a hard road because most humans don’t give a fuck about history. They live in the moment, barely cognizant of what came before & unconcerned with what will come after. Animals essentially. We like to try and place our species far above the others, but we are, on average, little better than strategically shaved chimps. There are enough who look backwards & forwards though that we slowly inch along the path to utopia. The average and below claw at the ones who try to preserve & improve; stymying progress, but not halting it. Ironically they hold back the efforts of people who would improve life for everyone. Which is why I am putting myself forward as dictator for life of the known world. I’ve got what it takes to steer this planet to the Star Trek future we’re all waiting for.
