Matthew and I have been discussing ideas about secular hope over the past few weeks, and I want to point to his side of the discussion here. I suppose these discussions started with some talk on Twitter, which is a terrible venue for discussing serious matters at length. Written up in essay form, in chronological order, are:
- My Regarding that XKCD comic
- Matthew's also regarding that xkcd comic
- My On "A World Without Jobs", and, implicitly, Obama's speech at Tucson
- Matthew's brave and bittersweet
