i think people are taking a wrong look at what Ike is trying to say:
when he says its meaningless, hes talking about the engineered hope in which everyone puts their faith in and in turn never gives out because its
power lies in future hope constantly so nothing ever gets done
his statement is just saying that nothing gets fixed because people are to busy or "not-busy" hoping instead of doing something based on real
i mean look at it people are hoping for Obama's change, but what hope is that, what change? Does he give a detailed description of how he is going to
turn all USA around and take out all the corruption, violence, war, unemployment, and probelms in general?
or does he sit there and say "Change"
and everyone falls head over heels and says "we are hoping" for the change they know nothing about.
Its like my dad, i was talking about Obama and i was hinting that he was a bad guy and my dad says, "no that guy is good, hes going to change things,
he s a good guy."
and i asked, "ok, what is he going to change, what are his policies?"
he couldnt even attempt to answer
and this has happened with almost every Obama supporter i talked to, the others just gave stupid excuses like
"hes black and white so hes going to unite the races" (so far theyve been more separated)
"well hes better then Bush" (oh and you know that because youve seen him as president before and you know exactly what hes going to do)
"Everyone likes him so he must be good" (yea i cant believe someone used this, and i just said to them, if you think that way then there is no hope
