They, just like what remains of Ancient Egyptian architecture, at least stand as a statement up against the eurocentric Greco-Roman obsession of Euro imperialists, that "non-White" people could achieve the engineering complexity that baffled 20th century anthropologists. I was once told at college that Greek architecture was the tipping point of science in the ancient world, but the Egyptians, Hittites and Sumerians shown that's just some self-serving racist bullshit.

Why is it, you think, that ISIS has been destroying Mesopotamian archaeologic sites, if not to impose their shitty historical revisionism?

Remember, member... Durruti's not the least afraid of ruins! And they fascinate me, for how even a pile of stone bricks can bring at least a critical angle on some prevailing narratives... that history's always more complex than we're made to believe.
