I'm conflicted by these occurrences of vandalism and careless destruction of ancient ruins and relics.
On the one hand you have the fact that these "ruins" were purposely destroyed or abandoned and from that aspect the artifacts and ruins are no more
important to people today as they were back then. They purposely destroyed it or threw it away, why should any people care about that now?
The on the other hand you have the same senseless destruction going on currently in our civilization. As soon as a building is unoccupied, vandals and
homeless people remove anything of any value and destroy it. Of course neglect and the elements will eventually destroy our modern ruins even if no
one vandalizes them.
I wonder if there will be any humans alive in a few thousand years that will care about the past world we destroyed and threw away?
Disclaimer: I believe that people should respect the ancient ruins and try to preserve them for the future.
