The famed Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is on fire and it looks like the damage is incredibly severe.

This has been one of the most famous buildings in the entire city. Before the fire, I saw a story about how the building required millions of dollars of renovations. The building was completed in 1260 so obviously a building this old requires a great deal of maintenance.

But the destruction of this building is really just a sad metaphor for what’s happened to Western civilization in general. Anybody who travels to Paris realizes that it isn’t Paris any longer. It is a cesspool filled with all sorts of genetic waste lingering around. I have no desire to visit the city because of this. Maybe if the Yellow Vest movement is successful in taking back France I’ll reconsider.
