Above And Beyond - Hope

It is hope itself. Hope, we are told, is our beacon in the dark. It is our light at the end of a long, dark tunnel.

It is the beam of light that makes its way into our prison cells. It is our reason for persevering, our protection against despair which must be avoided at all costs. How can we continue if we do not have hope? She was given a tightly sealed box and was told never to open it.

But, being curious, she did, and out flew plagues, sorrow, and mischief, probably not in that order. Too late she clamped down the lid. Only one thing remained in the box: hope. The more I understand hope, the more I realize that all along it deserved to be in the box with the plagues, sorrow, and mischief; that it serves the needs of those in power as surely as belief in a distant heaven; that hope is really nothing more than a secular way of keeping us in line. Hope is, in fact, a curse, a bane. I say this because of what hope is. More or less all of us yammer on more or less endlessly about hope.

But what, precisely, is hope? At a talk I gave last spring, someone asked me to define it. I just will. I just do them. To hope for some result means you have given up any agency concerning it. Many people say they hope the dominant culture stops destroying the world. I do not hope coho salmon survive. We simply do the work. We make sure salmon survive. We make sure prairie dogs survive. We make sure grizzlies survive. We do whatever it takes.

I would say that when hope dies, action begins. I am a complex enough being that I can hold in my heart the understanding that we are really, really fucked, and at the same time that life is really, really good. I am full of rage, sorrow, joy, love, hate, despair, happiness, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, and a thousand other feelings.

We are really fucked. Life is still really good. Many people are afraid to feel despair. They fear that if they allow themselves to perceive how desperate our situation really is, they must then be perpetually miserable. They forget that it is possible to feel many things at once.

They also forget that despair is an entirely appropriate response to a desperate situation. Many people probably also fear that if they allow themselves to perceive how desperate things are, they may be forced to do something about it. I love my life.

beyond hope - definition - English

I love life. This is true for most activists I know. We are doing what we love, fighting for what and whom we love. I have no patience for those who use our desperate situation as an excuse for inaction. The use of this excuse to justify inaction — the use of any excuse to justify inaction — reveals nothing more nor less than an incapacity to love.
