Default Isn't construction actually good?

Don't get me wrong, I miss the way (Oahu) Hawaii used to be. In the last 10+ years, the construction boom have just gone wild. I get the resentment. How the state bird is the steel crane. Hawaii is a special place and I would be a person that would tell people that you can "feel" the spirit of the aina.

Anyhow, but isn't construction a good thing? For some, for many? Doesn't it create jobs? $$$ in the economy? True, not everything is about money. But it is for the local guy that need to feed his family and afford his house.

Those who hate development have a louder voice. Those who benefit from it often remain quiet. Why is that? Is it because it's not PC?

The (sad) thing is we can not turn back time.

What do you think? Is this a legit point?
