    The fremen meticulously conserved and saved water to one day turn the planet into a habital environment. That’s pretty hopeful, I think. Frank didn’t really mature that arc of the story and instead focused, like you said, on religious fanaticism and dogma.

      Not sure how to do spoilers so I stay vague l:

      Herbert picked up the water topic in later books and showed what happened to the Fremen as well.

      I agree that it was hope that was very clearly - in the beginning.
