progress

When I see the host of powers allied against us – against progress, and equality, clean skies, fully tummies & human decency – the forces of greed and well, pretty much just greed, but with a helping of ignorance – I despair. I mean, logically I know I have hope for the future, but somehow the emotion I feel in the face of the overwhelming odds is despair.

I know that we’ll win though. I mean, we have to, or the greater we won’t be anymore. So I guess, in the final analysis, it’s an interesting emotion that comes from absolute foreknowledge coupled with a near crippling despair at the present.

The past was mostly worse.
