It’s not built. They can’t destroy it. Destroying implies destruction.
>this is yet another post that is all about me
Yes. Because I’ve already had all I have to say about the protestors. I don’t agree with them. What more is there to say?
You claim the moral high ground, but what are you doing to end the protests? Why are you not asking us to do the same?

> For the first time in over 50 years the entire observatory was shut down and shut down for an entire month, do you think they did that for no reason? The astronomers shut everything down because they were intimidated by violence and the threat of violence and because they knew the police would not protect them from barbarians despite what the law says.

Despite your earlier claim to be more angry at the protestors than with me this much longer post goes on and on about my moral and intellectual failings but contains not one word of criticism for the thugs who destroyed the Thirty Meter Telescope, in fact you say good things about them "They don’t seem very violent to me" and "They are part of a civilization" and " they don’t seem to be personally rude" and "I haven’t heard any crass jokes".
