That chair looks dumb as hell.
That's why it's called The Banality of Evil
The entire city of Rome is basically a monument to slavery and brutal conquerors. We're not razing that to the ground. Or all the monuments to colonial conquest in London. Agree with you completely
A lot of Assyrian art is crude, we don't just pummel it to dust like the Islamic State with a sledgehammer. The fuck is this reasoning?
Of course the owner of something can do whatever they want with it. That goes without saying.
That's a trash argument imo. You can keep a statue preserved without having it on display.
That also has a lot more historic value than some random drawing made by a mass murderer with no artistic talent.
Personally I share that opinion in that particular case, but the bottom line is that you're ok with/advocating for the destruction of a piece of history which I am 100% against regardless of the meaning/context. It is history whether we love it or despise it. So, opinions I guess.
It's not a piece of history, it's something made by a historic person with no value of its own.Personally I share that opinion in that particular case, but the bottom line is that you're ok with/advocating for the destruction of a piece of history which I am 100% against regardless of the meaning/context.

That's what I was thinking. It's perhaps the most prominent symbol of hate their is woven into a piece of furniture that should be screaming "lazy Sunday". But weaving horrific racism into the unassuming and everyday might also be a more honest depiction of hatred than we're used to seeing.
Are we talking about a confederate statue still? Regardless, pretty much anything could be considered a piece of history, and I'm sure someone would value it. A piece of toilet paper in a thousand years might be of historical value.
I constantly bring this up at every party. I abhor the man, but you gotta hand it to him-- at the end of the day he was a human. If we don't keep these toe nail clippings around, history may repeat itself.
Yes, but not one 50 years from now. Just because anything can be historic doesn't mean it should be. The Confederate statues have no historic value, these paintings have no historic value. General Lee and Hitler's toilet paper have no historic value. Just get rid of it, no museum would want it.
