hoped vs are hoped
While many nineteenth-century reformers hoped to bring about reform through education or by eliminating specific social evils, some thinkers wanted to start over and remake society by founding ideal, cooperative communities.
I think that we need use "are hoped" instead of "hoped" in above sentence because it has passive meaning?
Is this right?
Re: hoped vs are hoped
No. It's active. The reformers hoped to do something.
