Albert Einstein On Being A Pacifist

“I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.” – http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/a/alberteins166816.html

  1. Typical Einstein. He worked so hard to find the simplest answer He did it in his three great theories of science–and it is true in this quote as well.

    The way the world could have avoided WW2 is if the Germans refused to go to war. But we left a seed of hate from WW1 that Hitler nourished to bloom.

    If you debate a Just War, WW2 is always the best example, but it didn’t need to happen if the world could turn to love the Germans after WW1.
