If determinism was mainstream, maybe we could shed these worthless thoughts about superiority, one race over another, one gender over another, one country over another. That man in the jail cell didn’t make poor choices, while you made good choices. That man in the jail, or that homeless woman on the street, or that person whose face you see on the nightly news, glad it’s not you — that person is on a trajectory that’s unluckier than yours.
T. J. Brearton
