Which one is worse?

Socialist Blocks consist of two or more cheap structures that lower-working class people live in. They are popular in some parts of Europe and Canada and China.




Abandoned ruins consist of of vacant buildings that might be deteriorating. They care common in the U.S. and some parts of Western Europe.

Abandoned buildings are worse. Commieblocks can be quite nice.

The erred distinction comes from political arrogance.

Commieblocks. They'll be a blight forever. At least abandoned ruins can gentrify and turn into obscenely expensive lofts and condos if the area they're in becomes trendy for some reason.

Abandoned and decaying buildings r worse, because they're just sitting there not benefiting anyone, while commie blocks r fulfilling a useful purpose, even if they aren't doing it in an aesthetically pleasing way.

I used to live in a Commieblock but I am rather partial to the Acropolis, Chichen Itza, Tenochtitlan, and the Pyramids at Giza to completely write off abandoned ruins. Natch.

Of course abandoned buildings gives a city a bad look. But some public housing blocks especially those in American and European cities have their own social problems such as crime.

Areas of abandoned buildings can be rehabed and become healthy, attractive neighborhoods; commieblocks will always be commieblocks.
