These last two posts suggest how losing hope leads to placing what little hope is left in the promise of concentrated power. Again I appreciate Richard Rorty’s Achieving Our Country, arguing that: “The Left, the party of hope, sees our country’s moral identity as still to be achieved, rather than as needing to be preserved.”
