  1. Just finished the book - fantastic. And thanks for the recommendation (the three body problem trilogy was also great).

    The last chapter really nailed a few thoughts. One of my favourites. “On the whole, your generation successfully minimized its own risk of becoming domestic tyrants. But they had done so by handing us over to ourselves, and many of us discovered the tyrant within. To empower me and my generation, everyone pretended that there were no insurmountable obstacles in the way of our finding our true selves. But this gave us the sense that every misfortune or setback was entirely self-authored. Assured there was no judgment from without, our desires and expectations made us pitiless judges of our own lives. We had little resilience to meet challenges; we assumed the adults would just keep removing them and settling things for us. But the message was still clear to us: Your parents had torn down almost all the unjust taboos and barriers. You just needed a good education, and life would be whatever you wanted it to be.”
