And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. - I Cor. (13:13, KJV)
No arguing with Paul, but I’d settle for more hope than charity. How, though, does one maintain it in the Age of the Big Lie?
Liberals interpret hope expansively for humanity and, therefore, a better world. Conservatives tend to see it in a more personal, local context and for an afterlife. Liberals also prefer being proactive not reactive, which makes that better world an achievable goal.
