    Yeah, reading antireconciler, cascade and BerberElla, I think it's mostly a matter of sematics what hope means to different people.

    Personally I find that taking action weakens my sense of existential despair. Guess that's the point I was working to get across.

    Existential despair differs from standard despair that is caused by transitory conditions and circumstances; what type of action could directly affect existential issues such as personal mortality, free will, and the natural deaths of loved ones? At best, taking any kind of action may distract one from the contemplation of such existential issues.
