Is It Hope?
The last two years have been stressful in the historical sense. 9/11 set off a chain of uncertainty and cataclysmic change.
However, I think I'm starting to sense new hope in a lot of folks. Our invasion of Iraq seems in retrospect to be a bit of a tipping point battle on the war on terrorism - or more to the point our war on kleptocratic muslim theocracy. All of a sudden there is real hope that Iran might fall to freedom and that the other middle eastern bad boys will play nicer. There is even a feeling of progress in the Israeli mess.
None of this is perfect, but it just seems like the currents of memes have hope that a lot of these issues might finally get resolved in a positive way.
