Because it is always more difficult to build something of value and easy to destroy.
Because it takes time to create and just a moment to reduce to rubble.
Because people who have toiled their life away cannot see it be ruined in front of their eyes.
Because people with nothing to lose will be happy to take away from those who have patiently collected.
This is why the arsonist and the miscreant will have the upper hand in chaos.
Our only defence is to build again.
Because people who know how to build, they just don’t know any other way.
