A Fool’s Hope

Source: The Reframe
by AR Moxon

“This will be one about hope, though maybe not ‘hope’ as it is usually meant. Real hope isn’t a passive mushy thing, you know; no, hope is a crucial step in the natural progressive process of repair. You can’t fix a problem until you have the conviction it should be fixed, and the expectant determination to see it done — and if that doesn’t describe hope, I don’t know what does. This makes hope a defiant and combative act against those who would sabotage any act of repair, which is exactly what fascism, like all forms of supremacism, always does. For this reason, hope is what is needed right now.” (07/05/24)
