Oh yes - that is huge.

It's ironic - most write-ups about this statue mention that the Chinese government condemns the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddhas and Afghanistan's buddhist heritage, but here they are, about to ruin a site of even greater significance!
When I set out to lead humanity along my Golden Path I promised a lesson their bones would remember. I know a profound pattern humans deny with words even while their actions affirm it. They say they seek security and quiet, conditions they call peace. Even as they speak, they create seeds of turmoil and violence.

Indeed. These new structures cannot replace what would be learned from the older ones...
