無畏的希望


 

無畏的希望


奧巴馬在2004年民主黨全國大會上的演講的主題是無畏的希望(audacity of hope)。一種無限的樂觀精神,但是又不是那麼得盲目和毫無根據。他是這麼說的:
I’m not talking about blind optimism here — the almost willful ignorance that thinks unemployment will go away if we just don’t think about it, or the health care crisis will solve itself if we just ignore it. That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about something more substantial. It’s the hope of slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom songs; the hope of immigrants setting out for distant shores; the hope of a young naval lieutenant bravely patrolling the Mekong Delta; the hope of a millworker’s son who dares to defy the odds; the hope of a skinny kid with a funny name who believes that America has a place for him, too.
Hope — Hope in the face of difficulty. Hope in the face of uncertainty. The audacity of hope!
這樣的語句的確很有鼓舞力,讓那些受盡不公正待遇的人們看到了希望,同時也會樂意支持帶給他們希望的候選人。
2006年,奧巴馬成為了美國時代週刊的封面人物,而標題就是「下一個總統?(the next president?」,這個標誌著奧巴馬作為一位很有前途的政治明星的冉冉升起。他也在這一年發表了自己的第二本著作,《無畏的希望》。
