Socialist Albert Einstein by Valendale Socialist Albert Einstein by Valendale
"The economic anarchy of capitalist society as it exists today is, in my opinion, the real source of the evil...

Private capital tends to become concentrated in few hands, partly because of competition among the capitalists, and partly because technological development and the increasing division of labor encourage the formation of larger units of production at the expense of smaller ones. The result of these developments is an oligarchy of private capital the enormous power of which cannot be effectively checked even by a democratically organized political society."

~ Albert Einstein
"Why Socialism"
Monthly Review, 1949

In other words power & influence being concentrated in ever few hands who have increasingly greater influence over public opinion - not good for our liberties socialist or not - Ike Eisenhower covered the same line in one of his speeches

The man can build a weapon of mass destruction like a boss, but that doesn't qualify him to be a policy maker.

And that's just an ad hominem dismissal of what he said.

I'll tell you what, why don't you copy the best rebuttal of the quote in the image from that Lew Rockwell link you just posted?

Don't bother with him, he lives in a strange fantasy land where he believes that the Nazis were 99% Atheists... *facepalm*

It's quite funny to explain to people that Einstein was a socialist. Just the look on their faces when I pull up this article.
