Albert

"I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace... It is not better for a man to die for a cause in which he believes, such as peace, than to  suffer for a cause in which he does not believe, such as war?"


Albert Einstein
1931 California Institute of Technology
Speaking on the danger of blind adherence to ideology, even the idealistic ideology of pacifism.


I clipped this quote out of a magazine years ago. I helps me understand a duality I have always had, but never understood.


Go Albert!
