Hope is dumb. I kind of just want to remind everyone hope is dumb and it isn’t real. Regardless of how anything goes, hope is dumb. Not to be cynical about it, but hope is dumb. Not people named Hope, though I’m sure there are some dumb people named Hope. There are also some smart people named Hope. More dumb ones than smart ones because facts. Most people are dumb (I also got duped into responding to a Neo-Nazi troll on Twitter for a couple interactions earlier, so maybe I’m still stinging from that one). But people (and hope) are dumb. Nietzsche was probably right—crawling into a hole and waiting for death is the best route. Why don’t we do it? Because people are dumb. Myself included.
