Moving statues

I think there is something healthy in this discussion about statues we are used to have in our cities, sometimes without clearly understanding why they are there.

It obliges to a reconsideration of what is worth celebrating at our time but also oblige us to acknowledge that human beings (to whom those statues are usually dedicated) are never fully consensual and in the life of everyone (even the saints, as reminded today by a journalist) there is some controversial aspect.

One would hope that this discussion happen within a rational and calm atmosphere, but this is really asking too much today.
