What is going on with the world??

Jesus…

In a move that has sparked outcry from archaeologists, historians and
locals, the Peruvian government has approved a multi-billion
international airport near the famed site of Machu Picchu, Peru’s single most important tourist destination.

Bulldozers have begun to clear millions of tons of earth for the
project, which will be located in Chinchero, a picturesque Inca town.

Building the airport in this location will destroy an
ancient landscape, one shaped by the Incan people with terraces and
routes.

Critics also suggest that planes flying low over the
nearby village of Ollantaytambo and its archaeological park filled with
ruins and a massive Inca fortress with large stone terraces, would cause
incalculable damage to fragile Inca ruins there and destroy the peace and
beauty of the area.

The new airport will make access to the site much easier, and thus encourage greater numbers than ever before to visit.

But Machu Picchu is already overwhelmed by almost double the limit of tourists as recommended by UNESCO. [see also India’s Taj Mahal – an incredible site simply reeling under a relentless, ineffectively managed tourist, both domestic and international, onslaught]

It’s the constant battle between protecting the past and profiteering from it.

just throw them away then! why is people hoarding stuff that no one wants better. it all has to go somewhere when you die anyway

Wow it’s almost like the problem is our entire commercial fast fashion industry and not Marie Kondo.

Okay so I looked up the article and apparently the problem here is that they  can’t sell most of the stuff they get (and thus they send it to the dump) and I’m like… why not just give it to poor people for free then. I doubt a homeless person is gonna care if their extra layer has a button or is in style or not. Or turn them into scrap to sell at a fabric store, or something. There are so many other solutions… this isn’t a problem with Marie Kondo and the people making donations, there’s one with charities being capitalistic first and wanting to help second.

TIL that chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer literally spat on a US order warning him that a rematch in Eastern Europe would violate US sanctions. He played the match and then spent the next 16 years as a fugitive outside the US until his death.
