The duty of hope

Liked Even at the End of the World, There’s Still a Duty of Hope by Maria Farrell (Medium)

That all sound hopeless and unstoppable, but it’s just what they want you to think. We need to act urgently, fix what we can, and set fire to the rest. We need to figure out how to achieve deep, structural change without the bloody costs of revolution. We need to squeeze democracy through the eye of that needle, and we’ve got a couple decades at most to do it.

The duty of hope means despair is unethical.
