For centuries the word optimism has been viewed with scorn by those who cannot think of a better way to describe what they are not. In distancing themselves from this word and defining others by it, they have opened yet another unnecessary void between those who are and those who are not, those who have and those who have not.

This blog seeks to encourage our optimism through its cynical dedication to current affairs and to making affairs current, restoring the equilibrium increasingly absent from our world. In doing so, it will seal this and many other unnecessary voids.
