    Haven’t read the books, but isn’t Paul/Leto II taking the golden path ironically an implied long-term hope for humanity? >!Since it’s understood humanity will die out otherwise.!<

      Leto’s golden path involves everyone breaking their dependency on spice (oil) and the only way he’s able to achieve this is through a brutal dictatorship.

      Possibly if humanity had better self control and wasn’t constantly fighting for control of the spice (oil) then the hopeful future could be achieved without needing to remove everyone’s freedom and stifle innovation.
