Those pumping out the jeremiads with the desolate vision for the human race think those who don’t share their political dyspepsia are romantics who need a hefty dose of realpolitik. It’s observable that the farther removed one is from those engaged in struggle, the more desolate the vision about humanity’s ability to address its problems & end violence & inequality.
We don’t need downers to elaborate all the complexities & all we’re doing wrong. Those engaged in struggle know all that damn well. We need those who remain intransigent in struggle against all odds, those who never lose commitment or belief in the justice of their cause, their ability to win, & the potential of the human race. And in this day & age, we need those who know without equivocation on which side justice stands.
