And yet… there was an article on Medium (since deleted) that used the house analogy, but lamented that “those people” had messed up the house so much that burning it down was the only option to driving “those people” out and building a new house all over. Because it was the author’s house, dammit, so he could do to it what it wanted, and he wanted it back from “those people” who had contributed nothing to it. This was back mid-2016. Back then it was a scary article.
