People really interested in changing the quality of their life make an effort and do so on their own. Changing the name of a fort or street ain't going to do it.
You have no idea what changes the quality of a given person's life, you know only what changes yours.
Quality of life doesn't matter anyway, there's no need to justify on a personal level resenting public property being named after rebels, traitors and slavers.
The naming of these bases was a political action, the renaming will also be a political action. That's the way it goes.
