Comment on No ‘comprehensive business case’ yet for gallery by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Alex Nelson, Posted August 12, 2018 at 8:56 am: Maybe the time has come to copy the Chinese: The Mandate of Heaven = The right to rule and the right of rebellion.
It is a old Chinese political and religious doctrine used since ancient times to justify the rule of the King or Emperor of China.
According to this belief, heaven which embodies the natural order and will of the universe—bestows the mandate on a just ruler.
“The people are of supreme importance in a nation, the spirits of the land and grain are the next; the ruler is the least. That is why he who gains the confidence of the multitudinous people will be Emperor (ruler)… ” — Mencius
Throughout Chinese history, times of poverty and natural disasters were often taken as signs that heaven considered the incumbent ruler unjust and thus in need of replacement.
“Democracy is the speculation, that the stupidity of the masses will be less dangerous than the irresponsibility of the elites”.

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
“There will now be less capacity for Centralians to travel directly to Cairns and Perth.”
It has been like this for a longtime: Qantas wanting to fill up its planes had Cairn – Perth directed to Alice Springs with a feeble excuse and Alice Springs Perth cancelled with another excuse.
Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

Travelers around the world go to specific places for their attractions / landmarks.
What would be Paris without the Eiffel Tower? Sydney without the bridge, the opera house? London without Big Ben?
What will be left of Alice in years to come? Nothing – it will be just a town in Australia.

Ms Moss is not an artist and has no idea of what makes Alice Springs a town like Alice.

Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
