Book cover for The Fifth Science
Sweet Jesus, history is strange. When trying to see into the future, one always forgets that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. To every discovery, a parry. For every dove, a bullet.

Ken Liu
“He’s not so bad, he thought. He’s graceful in defeat. That’s a quality that belongs to a phoenix among men. • • • “What’s so impressive about that? I never get mad when my father beats me at checkers. I know I just have to get better.” “Those are wise words. Not everyone sees a loss as an opportunity.”
Ken Liu, The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories

“If only it were so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.”
Greg Lukianoff, The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure

“In the past, censorship worked by blocking the flow of information. In the 21st century, censorship works by flooding people with irrelevant information. People just don't know what to pay attention to, and they often spend their time investigating and debating side issues.”
Yuval Noah Harari, Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow
