There is a building. Tall, solid, with many tennants happily sheltered beneath its roof.
One day, the tall, solid building crumbles and falls. Unpredictably. The happy tennants say, “It’s okay. Let’s rebuild the building. These things happen.”
All is well. Tall, solid. And the building crumbles and falls. Unpredictably. Again. The happy tennants, a bit uncertain, say, “Well, we rebuolt before. Let’s give it another shot.”
All is well. Tall, solid… or so it seemed. And the building crumbles and falls. Unpredictably. Again. The happy tennants, not as happy, say, “We wonder what will keep this building standing this time?” And they rebuild the building.
All is not well. Once again, and just as unpredictably, the building crumbles and falls. Understandably uncertain and upset, the unhappy tennants outsource to contractors. Maybe this time the building will stand.
All is not well. The building crumbles and falls. Again. Unpredictably but not unexpectably. The tennants begin moving out, having waning faith the building will ever stand on its own again, so tired of rubble raining down upon them. And the building crumbles and falls. Over and over.
Soon, the building has no tennants. And there is no need to be rebuilt. The building resigns itself to remaining collapsed. This way it can never hurt or let down another tennant ever again.
