Maybe hope isn't necessary. Change is happening already!
In Canada, lessons from the rise and mostly failure of NGO's are back-propagating through the citizenry and local writers are documenting them. The Aboriginal message is being heard clearly, though not without difficulty for some people digesting the implications. Implications from a deeply circular or spatial system which includes the spiritual, or 'wholeness of existence'. They are speaking about humans as an integral part of the physical. Environmentally, the system takes human interests into account, but not in isolation from the rest.
Also factor in the diet threads and understand what's going on. Consider these dietary changes being made by increasing numbers of people and how dietary changes initiated by individuals can force growers and suppliers out of business or into new businesses that meet our needs.
Factor in the meaning of grassroots capitalism as represented by that open source "Blackspot" brand.
Notice a constant present within so many changes going on globally: in the past, we, the people, generally refused to imagine ourselves as making changes. Today, not so much.
In Wizard of Oz, Glenda told Dorothy that she (Dorothy) always had the power to return home (come back to her senses). So do we all, OSIT.

So, what has this to do with "Bolshevism in the U.S.", or Political Ponerology in general? I'd say that only Global scale actions that outflank narrower context political maneuvering will work. Like a massive wave that can't be stopped.
Right now, global change toward 'better' is mosaic, fragmented. As more people join cooperative independent endeavors though, the separate parts of the picture may eventually come together and unite us all against the psychopaths.
