Tropolism means taking the entire end of the week off from blogging when the city releases a watered-down design and they try to sell it as a feature, because you are pouty and just don't feel like it.
Tropolism means keeping out of the fray when there is nothing constructive to say.
Tropolism also means proposing new alternatives.
I propose the freedom tower design is changed to something that is reminiscent of nothing in this city. No vague design references to classic towers in New York or anywhere else, including the Twin Towers. No constructed meanings, symbols, or metaphors.
Tropolism means buildings have no meaning, they are just there, doing something or not doing something. The Twin Towers were the apotheosis of this, and their replacement should be nothing more.
