Unfortunately I believe RJ Eskow is wrong – there is no place for hope. There is no place hopium in this occasion of global climate destabilization.
“hope is a longing for a future condition over which you have no agency; it means you are essentially powerless.” – Derrick Jensen
“Hopium is the drug to which we’re addicted. It’s the desire to have our problems solved by others, instead of by ourselves. It’s why we keep electing politicians while knowing they won’t keep their promises, but finding ourselves too fearful to give up the much-promised future of never-ending growth on a finite planet.” – Guy McPherson
