... speed bumps, so they just go on with their daily lives in the face of an era that was gratefully reduced to mortar and rubble.”
I’ve been told that the cost of building all of these bunkers, that never got used, could have provided over 200-250,000 apartment blocks/condominiums! Man’s search for power, and then fear of losing it, is a sad thing sometimes.
