Einstein speaks on “How I see the world”; (Nov. 30, 2009)

Note: The translated book in French does not provide context to what Einstein’s wrote, published or delivered. Thus, I have no sources for the dates or events or purpose for these documents except what I may conjecture.

Einstein wrote “pure religion or cosmic religiosity consists at feeling astonished and ecstatic before the harmony of nature’s laws and beauty that uncovers a superior intelligence that defies our comprehension.  I know that my existence is limited and I ignore why I am on earth.

“I do know that I have this premonition that I am alive to the others: their smiles and happy nature condition my life. What I know is that who is questioning the meaning of life is going through a miserable period: he is not finding reason to live.  More importantly is “Is there any sense for asking such a question on the meaning of life?

“I feel a thousand times a day that I am dependent to the work of the living and the dead.  My home, my food, and my cloth are contributed by man of the community. What I know and what I feel I owe it to the other man.

“I cannot imagine of a man isolated from a community since his birth: I can only conceive that he would emulate the surrounding animals and environment.  Only languages to communicate among people distinguish us from the animal kingdom.

“I am not that free and I appreciate Schopenhauer maximMan can do what he wants but he cannot want what he wishes”.

“I learned to look at the world with a sense of humor: I cannot be preoccupied with the sense or purpose of my existence because it is objectively absurd.  I have ideals such as the good, the beautiful, and the truth and I get obstinate pursuing ideals not even accessible to art or sciences.  I loath human passions for wealth, glory, luxury, and power.  Only justice is worth social engagement.”

“Creating and inventing require a unity in concept, direction, and sense of responsibility.  I devoted my entire life with un-interrupted efforts to what I achieved and here you have people thinking that they can comprehend all my work by just listening to my expositions. My only criterion for judging a man is “To what degree and to what purpose has man liberated from his I?””

Gandhi incarnates the highest political genius of our civilization.  I hate the military institution.  Any person feeling this pleasure of marching in rank is utterly content with his limbic brain.  There are no excuses for obeying orders that are contrary to our moral values, especially killing fellow man.

“I cannot imagine a God punishing and rewarding the object of his creation or regulating his will on my own experience.

“I do not want to conceive that we may survive after death: that is the ultimate in egoism.

The mechanical organization of institutions, even in the scientific world, has substituted the individual innovators; thus, men of genius are becoming rare: citizens are neglecting the intellectual intelligence and the necessity of moral rights.

“I often have mixed feeling about individuals who have improved human life: I keep wondering of their moral objectives and if they really intended to do the goo

“The discovery of the atomic bomb does not constitute a higher danger to humanity than match boxes: we have to suppress its usage.   The fabrication of the H Bomb is a feasible objective: each progress generates consequences from prior progresses.

Generalized annihilation of human kind is the most likely outcome.

“We are creating the means for our premature death.  In the actual state of technology only a supra-national institution, an organization equipped with a world legal tribunal to decide on States’ differences and with executive power can eliminate fear and the need to arm for reciprocal defense.”

After the rise of Hitler to power Einstein reverted to pragmatism:

1. first, he resigned his professorship at the University of Prussia,

2. he incited France and Belgium to arm against Nazi programs, and

3. he warned Franklin D. Roosevelt that Germany might acquire the atomic bomb if the US does not get on fabricating the atomic bomb as a deterrence tool.

Einstein was also a staunch Zionist before the formal recognition of the State of Israel by the UN in 1948. https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2009/12/04/einstein-speaks-on-zionism/

Einstein speaks on Zionism; (Dec. 2, 2009)

Einstein was a staunch Zionist since before 1920.  He said in reply to a letter “I discovered that I was Jewish by the non-Jews as I arrived in Germany 15 years ago” (Einstein was appointed professor at the University of Prussia immediately after WWI in 1918 as his theory of relativity was demonstrated by observation).

“The individual Jews reached a high state of evolution but they lacked the support of united communities of blood and tradition:  Individual insecurity generates and provokes huge moral fragility.  Only the creation of a homeland would heal this sick people.

You may call this notion of homeland  “nationalism”, a concept that I hate but you are not wrong in your term. It is a kind of nationalism with no will for acquiring political power but preoccupied mainly to preserving the dignity and moral health of the Jews.

If we were not living within intolerant communities then I would be the first to reject all kinds of nationalism for the benefit of a universal community”. (Didn’t we all read this lame argument?)

Einstein considered Herzl his guiding ideological leader who worked to aiding the Jewish people to discover solidarity for an achievable purpose of establishing a Jewish homeland.

Einstein never missed an occasion in supporting the Zionism cause in meetings, speeches, and collecting funds for various Zionist organizations such as (organization for handicraft and agricultural work, ORT) and (organization for health protection of the Zionists, OZE).

He visited the USA in 1930 to drum up funding and gathering specialist volunteers to establish a medical Jewish university in Jerusalem.  He bantered to the leading literary figures of the period such as Bernard Shaw and H.G Wells in order to draw support from international figures.

Einstein impressed upon the audience that Jews have passion for knowledge, justice, and individual independence that are rooted in Jewish traditions.

Anyone who is contrary to the ideals of reason and individual liberty is necessary “anti-Semite”. (Anti-democratic? Anti-secularism?…)

He claims that Judaism has no concept of the world; it focuses almost exclusively on the moral aspects, the sanctity of life, and the right of all living creatures to life.

Sanctity of life is the supreme value to which all moral values are linked to.

Judaism is not a “faith” because the Jewish God refuses superstitions; the God of the Jews cannot be considered a substitute to life on earth: serving God means serving life on earth; joy for the beauty in this world as the singing of birds, the mumbling of kids toward life.

Einstein would like us to believe that the God of Judaism is sort of a “cosmic spirit “, a symbol for the respect to life and justice and that Marx and Spinoza were inspired by that spirit.

He recalled that Walter Rathenau once said “when a Jew says that he is hunting for his pleasure, then he is lying”

(The brief history of the Zionist State has demonstrated that hunting Palestinians is the prime entertainment of the Israelis, Jews or not).

Einstein claimed that the Sabbath sanctifies animals (so that they may be slaughtered during religious ceremonies?)  Einstein ventures into saying that if the old Jewish traditions relied on fear tactics to impose its values then it has outgrown it (Israel is currently totally relying on instilling fear in the region on a State scale).

Einstein claims that if we factor out the teachings of Jesus and the Jewish prophets from their religious institutions then we discover that we have a doctrine capable of healing humanity of all its social ills. (What is then left to teach?)

He went on “as long as we lived in ghettos, the Jewish communities experienced material and physical hardship but never psychological or social problems.  After the emancipation of the Jews in (most of Europe) and their integration in the European societies then the Jewish youth integrated fully in schools, universities, and professional institutions and started to shun Jewish traditions and customs.

This conversion was unilateral: the overwhelming majority in the European societies engaged in discrimination. We have to clarify our condition as strangers and draw conclusions; we have to work out our social solutions; we have to establish our own syndicates and institutions and refrain from imitating the non-Jewish sets of values and customs.  That is the solution for anti-Semitism

Einstein abhorred the concept of nationalism but made it an exception for the Jews.

He insisted on calling the Palestinians “Arabs”; this is not a simple general label that the Europeans used, but an ideological Zionist indoctrination to rob the native Palestinians of any national identity.

He said that a Jewish homeland should be a spiritual center; the goal is not to establishing a political community but a cultural community founded on Jewish traditions.

Jews and Arabs (in Palestine) got to reach an understanding on guiding lines for efficacious community needs: Switzerland represents a state evolution that caters to the complex constitution among its various nationalities.  Our colonization enterprise to re-construct Palestine should be realized to serve the concrete interests of the Arab population; thus, we should refrain from allowing the mandated power of England to meddle in our affairs”.

These pronouncements came after the “Jewish colonization” came to a standstill in the late 20’s due to the trickling of external funding after the US financial crash and the stubborn resistance of the Palestinian to further Jewish immigration.

It seems that Weizmann managed to coax England to resume its facilitation to Jewish immigration.

In response to a letter from an “Arab” in March 1930, Einstein suggested the formation of mixed “private councils”; four members of each “nationality” would delegates of non-political organizations and syndicates such as medical, legal, worker syndicates or orders and a religious representative.

The private council would meet once a week and discuss and deliberate; all discussions to stay secret then decisions would be disseminated to the public as an entity.

Einstein must have played the dumb: if the Palestinians could find non-political organizations then it was not the case with the Jews. Also, Palestine had a dozen religious sects including many Christian sects and Muslem sects to be able to sending one religious representative.

It is very possible that Europe would have considered reserving statehood for the Western Jews in east Europe because they were integrated in European societies; the main apprehension was the flooding of oriental Jews to Europe, a potentially not agreeable policy to racist Europe.

Einstein must have learned of the genocide committed against the Palestinians after Israel was recognized a State by the UN in 1948; hundred of thousands of Palestinians were displaced by brute force from their towns by a policy of transfer enacted by Ben Gurion.

Has Einstein written or spoken on these crimes against humanity?  

It is said that Ben Gurion PM has proposed to Einstein to be President of the new Israeli State but that he refused for declining health.

All Einstein’s manuscripts and documents are preserved in Israel.

Is there any time limit to have Einstein papers released to the general public?

Einstein was the prime disseminator of the Zionist movement targeting the elite political and academic figures in the western world due to his aura as the leading theoretical scientist since 1918.

It is very plausible that after the recognition of Israel that Einstein was formally hired as a spy so that his pronouncements be strictly controlled and kept secret after Israel decided on political policies that didn’t agree with Einstein’s principles.

Note: Einstein warns on fascist nature of Israel https://adonis49.wordpress.com/2014/08/04/einstein-warns-of-zionist-facism-in-israel-open-letter-to-nyt-in-1948/
