Are we built to last? By Lindsay

"Long after our society is dead and gone, will people pay good money to stroll through its ruins?"

I honestly wonder if we will have any ruins in our society to stroll through, especially from this recent era of the disposable lifestyle. Cookie cutter box houses are made to last about twenty years, anything of note gets plowed under before we can really see the value in it...

The Roman Empire lasted hundreds upon hundreds of years, and our baby country has little over 200 candles on its cake. The Roman's planned for eternal power, while our country, unfortunately, just plans for next week.
