"When the situation is hopeless, there's nothing to worry about."
- Edward Abbey
"We can't give up hope," I often hear.
"Keep hope alive," the saying goes.
"If we lose hope, nothing will ever change"" or so they believe.
Barack Obama promised hope but what we got was more illegal military interventions, targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens, prosecutions of whistleblowers, widespread domestic surveillance, and laws that allow the U.S. to indefinitely detain suspects anywhere in the world without charge or trial.
Maybe it's time to de-occupy hope"
The corporations raping our eco-system don't hope they can steal more land, exploit it, despoil it, and make boatloads of cash off of it. They make a plan and they make it happen. (You might even call it "direct action.")
Barack Obama promised hope but what we got was more off-shore drilling, fracking, tar sands pipelines, and spurious sonnets to nuclear power and clean ( sic ) coal.
Monsanto doesn't put its faith in candlelight vigils or humans standing in the shape of a peace sign, I mean" dollar sign. They get busy putting their people into positions of power, writing legislation, and bullying and smashing anyone opposed to their ecocidal agenda. Hope isn't part of their game plan.
Barack Obama promised hope but chose instead to bail out billionaires while 2,660 children are born into poverty each day in the United States.
Exxon-Mobil doesn't reserve its opinions for government sanctioned "free speech zones." Television, Internet, magazines, movies, songs, radio, etc. are all inundated with their taxpayer-subsidized propaganda" just as the planet is inundated with their lethal output. No hope, just action.
Barack Obama promised hope but yet we still have the PATRIOT Act, the prison at Guantanamo Bay, and Dubya's rendition program.
