Bringing MB’s declining but not failing comments onto my analogy. Buildings can stand a last long time while they are deteriorating. If the roof keeps the water out, almost forever. But once water gets in if it’s not fixed it will rot and fall apart.
Any building can be repaired or restored no matter how bad the condition has become. The necessary elements to achieve success are:
There must be an interested party with the energy to finish the job.
Adequate time must be available
Ability to overcome outside influences.
Sometimes it’s easier and cheaper to knock it down and start over though.
