balybary said:Macron the psycho wants to make history as the French Nero with the rebuilding of Notre Dame
Nero didn't help the accusations of him starting the fire by quickly reconstructing the part of the city that had burned in the Greek style and beginning work on his new palace.
Fun fact, possibly relevant here:
When Romans finally got sick of his shit, Nero's successors buried his palace then built new public facilities on top of it to return the land to the people.
I have no idea how many slaves you need in order to bury an entire palace using first-century technology, it must have been a vast project, but they hated him so much they figured it out.
(It's just behind the Colosseum. On weekends only, you can grab a hard hat and an archaeologist will take you underground and give you a tour of the dig. It's actually a great thing to do in Rome and something most visitors miss.)
