Surrender hope all who enter...

I surfed off the beaten path today and ran across Solarkismet's site some cool stuff there, including a link to a truly subversive essay about hope.

At the start I was just outraged at the concept of "dissing" hope, but by the end I had to admit the guy has a serious point (although that second to last paragraph would be unreadable at half its length).

If you can do something to bring about a desired outcome, you don't (need to) hope. And if there is nothing you (think you) can do to bring about the desired outcome then hoping is about as effective as wishing.
