It makes me really happy to see all those socialist monuments crumbling away.

I don't think it's stupid since it's personnal. I suppose (maybe not the truth) that Hauler thinks so because he sees the crumbling of those socialists monuments as a symbolic obliteration of communism, and that makes him happy.

Then I don't follow him in this happiness, though I'm not sure if those monuments should have complete maintenance or just a structural maintenance so they don't disappear.

(I'm never sure what I have to use in english for the extrem-left-wing : socialism or communism ?)

It's history. History should be remembered.

The statement is stupid because those monuments do not glorify the so called "communism" that was a big nightmare for the so called "Western world" for half a century, but they glorify the victims of the fight against fascism in the countries where they are located. Therefore, a monument that gives respect to the ones who died for our freedom shouldn't be identified with the "bad commies".

In the Baltics communists and fascists both were so oppressive that there was basically no distinction. So here these monuments are very ambiguous. More than half the population treats them as monuments to further oppression, rather than freedom (disclosure – including me). Some even want to tear them down (there was even an unsuccessful bombing of one of them).

The monuments posted above have nothing to do with Latvia, which is why it is not for you to judge where they are the "good" kind of monument.

But I didn't judge them. I added that the situation is very much different in the Baltics. The situation differs from country to country as one might expect.

The renewal project is a bit weird, looks more like a neogothic project from the early 1900 in the USA.
