▶ Your Answer :
It is widely accepted that historical objects are valuable parts of our society nowadays. Some people argue that those are in need of destruction and the objects are superseded by new construction. I mostly do not agree with the statement. There are many reasons why they should be kept by law.
Historical remains have the value just because of being present today. In detail, we have rarely seen a great deal of those which remain until now. In fact, it is fortunate for people to see them and those make people feel a great sense of trace from our ancestors. Moreover, those are worth investigating for the field of archeology, resulting in our generation knowing more about our past and furthermore, ways of life. Secondly, it is very helpful for children to understand the history since they have been there. For those reasons, it goes without saying that ancient monuments need protecting by law.
However, there is a demerit with them, which can be seen as obstacles when it comes to social evolution. For example, there are ancient remains in a small city which is in need of development for better life of residents. The government is likely to hesitate to make a decision whether it is good for doing it or not. As a result of this, a city cannot be reconstruted just because they have existed.
In conclusion, I personally agree with the opinion that they need to be kept by law since those provide educational knowledge for the young and it has historical value of being present as well.
