The most offensive thing
about optimism is its
smugness.

Not only optimism is offensive because of its ultimate smugness, but it is also offensive for the cruelty that allows like those atrocities perpetrated by all those liberal imperialists who promote war in the service of a peace. (“It prophesies war in the service of a peace which can never arrive because the vision it pursues is chimerical.”
