There is no hope
That is what a very vocal minority of people here like to tell everyone.
We can't win. There's no point in trying to defeat TPTB. There is no hope.
They practically yell it from the rooftops.
For arguments sake, let's say they're right.
How have you helped anyone here by telling us this?
Have you improved anyone's life by helping to crush what little hope they have?
It is my firm belief that a life without hope is not a fully lived life.
"But it's true!" you reply. "And facing the truth is always better than denying it."
Are you sure?
Let me give you an example of undeniable truth using this logic.
"We are all going to die, and life is full of suffering. So what's the point of going on?"
Oh, wait! NOW we acknowledge nuance and perspective.
Now an inescapable ending doesn't mean giving into hopelessness.
So if you make an exception for life, then why not make exceptions for the things that make life worth living? And the things that make life worth living are (in most cases) anything that you feel passionate about.
So if someone is passionate about changing the world, don't step on their dreams.
Lastly, and most importantly, you're wrong.
There is always hope.
For 1,500 years the peasant revolts of Europe were brutally crushed.
Everyone knew the undeniable truth that it was hopeless to fight against feudalism.
And then the French Revolution happened.
Since before written languages slaves revolts around the world were brutally crushed.
Everyone knew the undeniable truth that it was hopeless to fight against slavery.
And then the Haitian Revolution happened.
History is full of examples of bad guys winning...until they stop winning.
Finally, I'm not calling anyone out. I'm not thinking of anyone in particular.
This is just me getting something off my chest.
