The Sucker Bait Called Hope

http://www.dissidentvoice.org/2008/11/the-sucker-bait-called-hope/

Excerpt:

We just concluded an election in which both parties talked about hope, one more so than the other. Hope, that murky, undefined belief that some unknown force, perhaps Jesus or modern science or some great political leader, or other as yet unknown force will reverse our national or personal condition . . . will deliver us from what every bit of evidence indicates is irreversible, if not politically, then ecologically: Decline and eventual collapse. There is quite a difference between hope and understanding the facts, then holding justified optimism. Hope is magical thinking, a suckerís game. Politicians the world round fully understand this.
