A monument is the most wasteful thing you can do with public property. You can’t use the land for anything, The land is tied up forever. After a few decades, the people who find it meaningful die or lose interest.
Any monument from the 1960s is a stylistic embarrassment. That is the fate of all monuments.
Go look at Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC Canada. It is littered with monuments that are meaningless to any living person. I suspect any other large city park would be the same way.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:70)
