Economic interlinking has made the destinies of nations interdependent to a degree far greater than in previous years.” —Albert Einstein, “Towards a World Government”
“If we want to resist the powers which threaten to suppress intellectual and individual freedom we must keep clearly before us what is at stake, and what we owe to that freedom which our ancestors have won for us after hard struggles.” —Albert Einstein, “Science and Civilization”
