Architects and bulldozers

Architects are artists. They study, research and plan. They dream, imagine and create. They take a vision and turn it into reality for all to enjoy. They craft every detail of their masterpiece and obsess over minutiae. When it’s ready, it’s presented.
 
Bulldozers are not artists. They march in and tear down. They survey a site and dismantle it, starting where it’s easiest to attack. They find the weaknesses and bash them in until the entire structure crumbles. They give no care to the artistry, detail or legacy. Get in, get out, get it down.
 
It’s far easier to knock something over than it is to build it up. For every architect there are countless bulldozers. For every artist there are hundreds of critics. For every designer creating something great there are vultures ready to approach. Which are you?
