Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Albert Einstein

Einstein, not only was one of the greatest scientists of all times, but he also was a great revolutionary and a prominent humanist.

Einstein was a member, sponsor, or affiliated with thirty-four communist fronts between 1937 and 1954.  He also served as honorary chairman for three communist organizations.

An exhibition of his handwritten manuscripts which was displayed on November 2002, in the museum of Natural History in New York City, showed that he was an ardent supporter of socialism and social justice in the world.  That was why an investigation was conducted by the FBI, in order to link him to a Soviet espionage ring.

Uncovered FBI files with 1800 pages were revealed in a book by Fred Jerome who writes:  from the time Einstein arrived in the U.S. in 1933, to the time of his death in 1955, his phone was tapped, his mail was opened and even his trash searched.  Edgar Hoover the director of the FBI even ordered to bug his secretary’s nephew’s house.

Einstein’s social career was far more glorious than his scientific life.  Quite the opposite, the U.S. states and pro-capital media intentionally highlighted his scientific life to put his social career under the shadow of ignorance.

Einstein in his famous essay “why socialism?” which was published on May 1949, in the opening issue of “The Monthly Review”, expressed his concern about a plan economy which is not yet socialism.  “A planned economy as such may be accompanied by the complete enslavement of the individual.  The achievement of socialism requires the solution of some extremely difficult socio-political problems”: He also warned about emerging an all-powerful and overweening bureaucracy in a “far-reaching centralization of political and economic power”.  A danger that must be counterweighted with political democracy; the main problem that eventually led to the dismantlement of the Soviet Union.
