Fascination with ruins

When I am looking at Photos of 9/11 I can not avoid the thoughts that many people wished something like this to happen. Not the bad guys in Afghanistan or the envious guys in Europe and other parts of the world, no, the good Americans themselves.

Sure not because they wanted all that people to die, but because there exists a morbid lust for destruction and decay. And I’m not talking about the destruction of the enemy how it can be enjoyed in thousands of computer games, I am talking about the fascination and yearning for someone’s own end: The fascination with ruins.
