Old v. new

That’s progress I suppose; all the people who live in Tower Hamlets around those high-rise new blocks and in the high-tech environment constantly post on social media, stating how much they love their new environments.

Yet, I see those historical small old houses living people, who are in corners of low development, who constantly protest about somebody wanting to built a new house around where they live.

Beats me.

I just wonder how they ever gotten over the pyramid stage, surely there were people, even in Egypt, who protested about new buildings or old trees being in the way of progress.

There is always some important history in every plant, building, landscape, though live goes on.

I thought that in the age of online browsing, it should be easier for people to accustom themselves with things other than in their immediate environment. Of course I try to be appreciative of all sentiments.

We hear about a lack of new homes. Could that be that people are afraid to build because somebody always protests about those new housing developments in their neighbourhoods?

If you now try to prevent new homes from being built, you stop somebody from having a home and enjoying their life.

For the sake of saving some old crumbling buildings, you must not allow those who need homes to suffer.
