Science is a mirror in which you see what you
want to see reflected back. The Nazis used science
to justify racial genocide. Liberals use to justify . . .
“let’s hug the world”. But both of them reflect the
cultural prejudices of the people who are looking
into the mirror of science.

–Thomas Holland,
English writer and historian
