“Hope in the Dark” is about the reality that we don’t know what will happen next, and in that uncertainty is room to act. But what’s going to be really difficult, and what I saw in the nuclear freeze movement in the early 80s, is that people think if we don’t win tomorrow or we don’t achieve exactly what we’ve set out to do then we’ve achieved nothing or we lost. Success often takes years or decades and often a number of extraordinary benefits take place along the way that are indirect or unanticipated and those absolutely matter.”
