John Henry Newman
“The present is a text, and the past its interpretation.”
John Henry Newman

Albert Camus
“To decide that a man must be definitively punished is to deny him any further opportunity whatsoever to make reparation for his acts... This right to live that coincides with the opportunity for reparation is the natural right of every man, even the worst. The most wretched criminal and the worthiest judge here find themselves side by side, equally miserable and jointly responsible. Without this right, the moral life is strictly impossible. None among us is entitled to despair of a single man, unless it be after his death, which transforms his life into destiny and admits of a final judgment. But to pronounce this final judgment before death, to decree the closing of accounts when the creditor is still alive, is the privilege of no man. On these grounds, at least, he who judges absolutely condemns himself absolutely. ...It is because man is not fundamentally good that no one among us can set himself up as an absolute judge, for no one among us can pretend to absolute innocence. The verdict of capital punishment destroys the only indisputable human community there is, the community in the face of death, and such a judgment can only be legitimated by a truth or a principle that takes its place above all men, beyond the human condition.”
Albert Camus, Reflections on the Guillotine

“Machine learning is like money laundering for bias.”
Maciej Cegłowski

J.G. Ballard
“The advanced societies of the future will not be governed by reason. They will be driven by irrationality, by competing systems of psychopathology.”
J.G. Ballard, J.G. Ballard: Quotes: Does the Future Have a Future?

Angela Y. Davis
“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.”
Angela Y. Davis
