Rich people would be forced to contribute to public works. Why, in the Bay Area, where houses (albeit large ones, but nothing particularly old or historic or haunted or with a moat) sell for a hundred million dollars, do we have a historic lighthouse begging for change so it can be repaired before it literally falls into the sea? Or a planetarium closed indefinitely? GIVE THEM SOME MONEY, RICH PEOPLE. MAKE YOURSELVES USEFUL. GO BUY A BUILDING, BUILD A SCHOOL, AND DONATE IT TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT OR SOMETHING. And use stone, while you’re doing it. Plant some trees. USE YOUR IMAGINATION.
