The Best Definition of Hope I Have Ever Heard

This is an incredible speech by Chris Hedges on Hope at the Veterans for Peace Civil Disobedience Action on December 16th. His speech is mixed with clips of veterans speaking out against Empire's wars.

He is right on.

"Hope never makes sense. Hope is weak, unorganized, and absurd. Hope, which is always non-violent, exposes in its powerlessness the lies, fraud, and coercion employed by the state. Hope knows that an injustice visited upon our neighbor is an unjustice visited on all of us." -- Chris Hedges
Here is the transcript of his speech.
