Albert Einstein – obedience or intervention

Albert Einstein on:

Intervention or obedience

“The world is too dangerous to live in – not because of the people who do evil, but because of the people who sit and let it happen.”
– Albert Einstein


I am against any nationalism, even in the guise of mere patriotism.
– Albert Einstein – My Credo

Nationalism is an infantile sickness. It is the measles of the human race.
Albert Einstein – Words of Wisdom


Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.
– Albert Einstein – Words of Wisdom

Social education

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.
– Albert Einstein – Why Socialism?
