The Egyptians Were Better!

The legacy of Ancient Egyptian architecture is not some ego driven, self congratulatory spasm of construction.
Ancient Egyptians built their statues and their pyramids not to honour a king but more to honour a land and a people. No one Pharaoh ever saw the end of a construction project which they had started. In Ancient Egypt, death was only the begining. Gratification was never instant. They built for the ages. Their psychy was something which we cannot compare to in the present. The only thing which generations build in earnest these days is debt. Ancient Egyptians built as a testimony to their ABILITY as a people.

We now create more and more debt in testimony to our LIABILITY as a world.
