    Well yes, Life as a universal value is a good place to start.
    and the pursuit of happiness... and in the modern world: education... and honesty in speech.

    Well, look at it in terms of how much effort goes into demolition. Reminds me of the story of the three little pigs.TheMadFool
    A wise pig builds houses suitable to withstand the huffing and puffing it's reasonable to expect in his neighborhood.

    There's a matter of costs and benefits. The most durable house constructible is rarely or never the optimal house to build.

    What does any of this teach us about the behavior of those who make it their business to "destroy houses" in the metaphors you've introduced or in the conversation you've laced them into: the wolves who huff and puff to blow down the homes of pigs and devour the inhabitants, or the scholars who, on Rystiya's account, promote the spread of nihilism by destroying values without replacing them?
