Also nice typo with "Philosophy."
Also, Hitler hated the communists. Hitler made a temporary pact with Stalin before he invaded/liberated Poland...But only because he was trying to prevent having to fight a conflict with the whole world because the British+French empires said they would declare war on Germany if they dared to invade Poland, (and save the German civilians who were being massacred there.)
Here's Elitism at work here... And no, not by Einstein, but by psuedo-intellectuals who think that because someone who's really smart in one area is smart in all.
Einstein had an opinion. Considering where he came from and during what era, I don't blame him for having such a low opinion of Capitalism. But I'm not surprised you didn't attach a DATE to the quote.
And Churchill kept the Nazis from killing Britain, you dunce. He saw what was coming YEARS in advance.
Chamberlain? He wanted to roll over.
How about you drop that Howard Zinn history book in the garbage bin and pick up one written a little closer to the events in question.
Right so Einstein's opinion doesn't matter anyway other than physics.
Churchill was Prime Minster for five years and rallied against Nazism, there are another 85 years of his life. During which of was a committed Imperialist, rallied against women's suffrages, supported Allied intervention in Russia, supported both Benito Mussolini and Francisco Franco before the outbreak of the second world war, favoured using poison gas against the Kurdish people to name a few.
Yes my opinion of Chamberlain is low, but I at lest understand why he tried to avoid a war (note, understanding is not the same a agreeing) Also my dislike of Churchill doesn't equate with support of Chamberlain.
I spend years studying history, don't think they may be a reason I came to view I have. On a side note I should get round to reading some of Zinn's work.
Damned bloody skippy! Then how about teaching students OTHER interpretations to provide a balanced look?
Screw that noise.
And yes, Einstein was a brilliant scientist, but that doesn't mean he's right about everything by default. That's a projected elitist mentality.
So it's elitist of me to quote a person who's educated, but it's no elitist of you to support a system based on the idea that the rich are better than the poor because they are rich.
That would explain a lot.
Einstein didn't create the atom bomb. He never took any part in the Manhattan Project. His involvement with the bomb only goes so far as that he advocated for its use originally, in fear that Nazi Germany would get the bomb first. He signed off on a letter to FDR, but later on, after realizing that Germany had no chance of making atomic weapons, he changed his mind and tried to get the president to not go through with using it. But by then FDR was dead and it was too late.
Afterwards he considered the letter to FDR, advocating for use of the bomb, to be the one great mistake in his life.
Do you hear the people sing! Singing a song of angry men!
While Einstein might have been biased by the Fascist Nazis (since he was Jewish), the point he makes is no less valid. We have to accept that one of the virtues socialism has that capitalism lacks is the intention of sharing labor products with those who need them, not just those who can afford them.
Politicians pretty much always lie and pretend to be something they're not.
