(三) 延伸討論

 

Although there is cultural value in preserving historical ruins, maintaining those places just takes too much money.

With Europe's current economy, is it really wise to be spending money ( that they clearly don't have ) on buildings that

are slowly falling apart.

Would the money be better used elsewhere ?

Think about all the starving children that could be fed and educated with the money.
