provocative_bear

Whoa, when did this happen? By classic convention, Monke is LibCenter, and the two kinds of Libright are business (yellow) and pedo (purple). If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Libright’s trying to appropriate that which is not theirs...


bulldogs1800

There’s a section of libright which literally just wants to be left alone and live in the woods. I call that… monke

If we were to revive my country's monarchy, we could make lots of money on tourism to royal places, like in the UK while also getting rid of this corrupt republic thing... Sounds like a win win to me.


ISimpForChinggisKhan

Where are you from?


Clarbaum

I’m from the hot lands of Brazil


ISimpForChinggisKhan

Unironically the Republic of Brazil was the worst thing to happen to it. I'm not particularly monarchist (I just want a competent gov) but the Empire should have stayed in place. If you think Pedro II being deposed was a good thing you are an actual retard.


ColdBrewedPanacea

... yeah if my option is Pedro II or the republic of brazil thats not a hard choice.


Fried_Pepsi

Pedro II wasn't even bad, he wasn't some King Louis mother fucker, so they can't even be like "Well, at least we're not as bad as the king was, am I right fellow revolutionaries?"


ISimpForChinggisKhan

He was a great statesman for sure


Sir_Oakijak

Pedro II was actually good. He was reasonable and loved his country to pieces. He was couped because he abolished slavery, but he even did it in a way that wasnt "unfair" to the slave owners who "rightfully" purchased their slaves. He said that any children of slaves would be free and no new slaves could be purchased to give time to the plantation owners to swap over to paid labour while not actively screwing them over. Then the retards turned around and exiled the greatest thing to happen to Brazil pepehands

[I'd recommend this Kurzegast vid on beauty](https://youtu.be/-O5kNPlUV7w) turns out beauty DOES have tangible benefits. Humans surrounded by beauty are happier and healthier both mentally and physically. It's why brutalist architecture and urban jungles lead to high rates of depression.

JapanesePeso

Pizza_Ninja

I'm sorry, without government there would be no culture? This is bait right? You're looking for an argument so you can say more absurd things to test people's sanity? Government can affect culture but to suggest it 100% dictates culture is asinine.


Singular-cat-lady

Eh, like everything it seems like there's a good way to do it and a bad way to do it. Funding museums is a great way to promote culture (while also increasing tourism to your city, nice). Conversely, the gov't directly paying artists to create work seems like it could turn into propaganda in a hurry.


Ptcruz

Here in my country we did the second option. It didn’t turn into propaganda, but it turned into corruption.

ARandomPerson380

jediben001

I just want building that actually fit the feel of the place. My local council is retarded. The new library they build is a giant silver blob.


KidCharlemagneII

I've always wondered what goes through architects' heads. A library is supposed to be a place where people want to go to study and read. That means it needs to be friendly and comfy. A giant silver blob is the opposite of friendly and comfy. This stuff shouldn't be that hard, but postmodern architecture is a bitch


jediben001

They also nocked down the old Victorian entrance to our train station and built this ugly metal thing instead

I dont understand why any lib would be against culture. It's our second biggest weapon against the government. The first being recreational mcnukes.

Not at all. Talking about ugly-ass hotels and shit


Kernobi

American chain hotels abroad are often beautiful. It's not like they make shit hotels in the US because they love it. But, maybe since they're not competing on looks, they go for cheap.


ISimpForChinggisKhan

They may not look bad but they are completely out of touch with the rest of the city.


QuietHumanMachine

Why invest in a particular culture ? Invest in every single culture who remotely approached your country. Hell we could even create new cultures to trick dumb tourists.


m50d

All the colours in a paint pallette can be beautiful, but if you mix them together indiscriminately you get nothing but a muddy brown. Cultures need their own coherent spaces in order to thrive.


Heinous_Speaker

ReasonableWorker7134

Without the government there would not be any culture.


Dont____Panic

Uhh what? Sarcasm?


ISimpForChinggisKhan

Reality. Versailles was built by order of the King of France. Monarchs influenced artstyles. The Renaissance spread thanks to nobility patronage.


KidCharlemagneII

This is what keeps me from going full lib. I like culture. I want someone to cultivate it.


Coochie_Creme

>Implying that only the rich have culture


Coochie_Creme

Not so much that there wouldn’t be any culture, more that the elites pushed and influenced the culture in a certain direction.

evanthesquirrel

I moved from Boston to Seattle a decade ago and remembered hearing their "history" being only 100 years old or so. At first I scoffed. But then I realized if you don't preserve your history now, you won't have it later. Then the assholes in city hall cleaned off the wall of chewing gum


lazyubertoad

Culture is very important. It lowers costs of business operation and risks, it increases productivity. I think low culture is why some countries are so much poor.

PoopyCockDooDoo

None taken here. Although I will say that the Southwest has some really fucking amazing culture that gets overlooked a lot because "hoohaa desert wasteland." When you're in a place where the culture is intertwined with the location and people, it's a feeling unlike any other, and one that, unfortunately, I think most Americans won't ever fully experience. And that non-experience leads into thinking it's not important and preservation doesn't matter


sinisterforces

And that’s why auth unity > right unity


Mr_1ightning

Authleft literally destroys culture by design


sinisterforces

By design how? See, I flair as centrist but I probably am a bit more left economically and a bit more auth. Yet I don’t want to flair auth-center or auth-left for maybe obvious reasons.


Mr_1ightning

Moderate authleft can be fine, but far totalitarian left destroys culture (Stalinism, Maoism, North Korea...)


sinisterforces

Oh definitely. That’s why I would never flair up as authleft. And why I don’t flair up as auth center maybe should be clear.

You do realise, most of cultural monuments were built because rich people wanted to have beautiful things?


KidCharlemagneII

That's a bit cynical, imo. Rich people wanted to have beautiful things, but they also wanted to preserve their heritage and demonstrate their culture. The Arc de Triomphe wasn't built just because someone rich wanted to build something cool, it was built specifically to honour fallen soldiers through the grandeur of Roman architecture because of Rome's historical and cultural significance.

Mr_1ightning

I mean culture is built by money and cheap labour


Azursus

Culture is like the environment, protecting it is a good in-of-itself. The beauty of the thousands of cultures across the world shouldn't be commodified or protected simply a means of money-making, but because the continuation and continued development and evolution of these cultures is a good for humanity for the diversity of viewpoints, stories, aethestics, values, societial systems and more. To care only so-as that you can make money off of it is such a hollow viewpoint.


toalewa99

SocraticLunacy

Pecuthegreat

Tourism culture is still cringe tho. It turns cultures into commercialized parodies of themselves. That's what happened to Sparta under the Roman Empire and with modern Capitalism driving it, it will be worse.


EVG2666

In the end tourism still damages culture. Look anywhere in the world and see what happens when a place becomes a popular tourist spot. Foreigner capitalists move to exploit the labor force. Traditional shops are replayed by extravagant hotels and souvenir shops. Restaurants cater to wealthy Western tourists instead of the local populace. Bali is a f\*cking shitshow now and full of trash because of tourists. I avoid it like the plague.
