Rebuilding rebuilding rebuilding

I hear a lot of politicians say they want to "rebuild society", "rebuild Britain", "rebuild politics", rebuild this, rebuild that. David Cameron the other day was going on about rebuilding family, rebuilding community, above all rebuilding responsibility.

I am not sure all this "rebuilding" is necessary, or desirable. Although these are certainly challenging times, it's not like everything is broken beyond repair. All right, we shouldn't take it literally. But with so many good things around, the rhetoric could be a bit more inspiring.
