“Hope has two beautiful daughters: their names are anger and courage. Anger that things are the way they are. Courage to make them the way they ought to be.”
Just after wading through some more ecotopian nonsense, do people not understand how grim an economic situation we have bequeathed to ourselves. . I really no longer can understand how society keeps being positive and hopeful, irrespective of how grim the news is. Our disney induced believe in happy endings really is all encompassing even the most intelligent people seem to believe that we have a safety net. At what stage do people start to accept how totally messed up the system is and seek to really change it.
My own understanding of hope is probably best summed up by the quote above from Augustine of Hippo. What do others think.
