“History is not the past. It is the present” -- James Baldwin; In the house of the hangman you should not speak of the rope; otherwise you will open yourself to the suspicion that you are a rancorous person. - Theodor Adorno (quoted in Jeffries, Stuart. Grand Hotel Abyss:The Lives of the Frankfurt School. Verso, 2017: 271.)
