The Gucci owner will donate 1 billion. The family behind Louis Vuitton will donate 2 billion. "stupid old church" You are the one that is stupid, that church is part of your (you might be f-flagger) history, even tho your not religious.

sure, if tthey left their past behind everyone would've forgotten hitler. however, not only is that completely realistic, but the holocaust serves as a reminder of what could happen if someone with that ideology comes to power. let's say you were in hitler's place right now. would you want another holocaust? now pretend if you didn't know what the holocaust was. if i asked you that same question, you wouldn't understand nor care. thus, you'd do it again.

A John Amos Comenius handwritten book is destroyed by fire - you can get it in any bookstore in print, it's compeletely fine.

Well if You think about usability of things... Why the heck would You want a 1500 square meteres villa if one can only use no more than 5 or 6 rooms daily? Why build it? Back to the core. For me it was impressive that 1000 years ago people were able to build something this large, complicated and advanced. For me it was a monument of what people can do. With none or close to none advanced tools. For me Notre Dame was a monument of humanity as a whole. And yes, You need it. Doesn't it make You think that 15'th century people built a piece like this and compare it to what You have done already with Your life?
2019-04-16 19:23
i don't want a 1500 m2 villa, i'm a minimalist and people in the 15th century would beg me on their knees to have the life i have. i'm not a professional builder btw, not sure about you

I mean, the rich people who donated all that money EARNED their money by their own doings, so they are entitled to do whatever the fuck they want with their money. However, it's kinda weird, maybe even foolish, that they chose to make such a large donation for such a meaningless thing afterall, instead of a more humanitarian/philanthropic cause. People shouldn't be that mad for it, but they also shouldn't be happy either. In the end I just want everyone to get fucked and humanity to end.

I understand the significance of the building, but it's just that... a building. Paris has huge numbers of homeless, public services such as the metro are in a state of disrepair, high crime rates etc and what's worth near to a billion euros? Repairing a church. Couldn't make it up
2019-04-16 20:05
I get your point, and no one can say it's wrong But there's also this point : Notre Dame is 800 yo So it's more than just a church, it's our legacy And it can easily be considered worth more than many human lifes for some people, and one can understand their point of view as well

I initially read your point about valuing a building over human life as being ridiculous - but I suppose if you extrapolated it to say that no 'culture' is worth more than a human life, the result would be a world in which humans were not fulfilled, thus rejecting 'life', if that makes sense. I suppose it's a matter of balance - Paris' legacy is already eroding; it's dirty and crime ridden - perhaps public/private money needs investing across various causes, rather than being concentrated so heavily on one project in Notre Dame.

+1 I don't understand why people complain about how people decide to do with their money, just let them spend their money like they want, in what they want and the way that they want
2019-04-17 05:57
One of the problem is that it's not exactly their money that they're spending :< In France, when you donate money to an association, or in this case for the restoration of a piece of art, the state pays you back 60% of what you gave To talk with real numbers, Pinault, the richest french man, gave 100 Millions, but he will get 60 millions from the state So when tho total amount of money given is 1 billion, this means that the state actually spends 600 millions, which is a lot of money even for a state. Of course people can spend their money how they want, but in this specific case, it's obviously not that simple The government could do an exemption of this 60% refund system, but then they would be 100% sure to lose half of their remaining electors So yeah, debating on this subject is not as absurd as it could sound in the first place

Are you sure its not that your donations are 60% tax deductible? That's not exactly what you were describing. Also I just read French companies can only deduct 60% of donations up to 0.5% of their annual revenue. Assume its the same for people, so he wouldn't get nearly that 60% deducted from his taxes.
2019-04-16 20:26
It's indeed 60% tax deductible But for example for Pinault's 100 millions donation, he'll get exactly a 60 millions refund And people who give more than the limit of this refund are extremly rare I didn't know about this 0.5% limit, but apparently Pinault will really get a 60 milliond refund

I don't know your laws but if its similar to America, he isn't getting any of that money back, just deducting it from taxes.
2019-04-16 20:51
Yeah, but it's all the same He pays 60 millions less to the state at the end of the year So yeah it's not like it's - 100 millions + 60 millions on his bank account But it's - 100 millions - less 60 millions at the end of the year, which is exactly the same

He can only deduct up to .5% of his annual income though, so unless he makes 20 billion this year, he wont be able to deduct it all. No idea his annual income but it cant be close to 20 billion.
2019-04-16 21:22
With this 0.5% income limit, indeed, it wouldn't even be close to a 60 millions deduction from his taxes, but I heard that Pinault was still going to get a 60 millions tax deduction So I went to check, and actually, this 0.5% limit only concerns companies For a donation from someone, there is no specific limit. It's a tax deduction like you said, so you're kind of limited by the amount of taxes which you pay If you pay 20K euros every year, then you can get a deduction up to your 20K euros. And actually, you can even get to a 100K deduction, because the deduction you get is acumulated on a balance, and it's valid 5 years after you receive it. So when you give 100 millions, you get a 60 millions tax deduction, which you can split on your taxes of the 5 following years And this Pinault guy probably pays at least 60 millions euros of tax every 5 years I didn't look for any proof or anything, but rich people pay very expensive tax in France, and that's why they all hide their money in Switzerland, so I wouldn't be surpsised if the richest billionair in France paid more than 12 millions euros per year
