    @frogstair More like Haskell to me. The type is the type, and it only does what the type does.

    In JavaScript, the type is just a sort of vague description that honestly doesn’t even matter that much.

    @Root could see this quote as being about type parametricity and Wadler's "theorems for free!" concept (great and very useful paper).
