What are the symbols and the monuments of a society that chooses to show up at the centre, says a lot about the values on which it is based. The people and events you are proud of and would like to be associated with the statues and the monuments raised over them. What is important, and the admirable will of course vary over time.
the Monument, in the public domain, is a powerful message for all those who are staying close to their homes. It is very understandable that the descendants of the africans who were forced to become slaves in the united states would like to get rid of the statues of the people who sydstatsgeneralen, Robert E. Lee, who led the fight for the conservation area. In a country where racism is still strong, it is disrespectful to continue to humiliate their victims by paying homage to the worst of the tyrants of the monument. Of course, it is not enough to remove or replace the statues, to the eradication of racism and segregation, but the symbols should not be underestimated.
the Debate has finally reached Sweden
Also, in Sweden, has now a belated debate about our nation's history, our monuments, taking off. It is to be welcomed.
Why do, for example, the Swedish king Gustav II Adolf and Karl XII's statue at the some of the city's most central and popular places?

The statue of Charles XII of sweden, who, pointing to the east with his sword, standing in the Kungsträdgårdens the south since 1868. What is wanted the decision makers to say with this?

just as it is important to move away from the symbols of the things that have been a bad thing, it's that the lessons of history. It can be, and should not be forgotten.
