Look to Einstein for advice on pacifism

R.T. Moolick

Dear Editor,

I do want to compliment R.W. Boyle on “Golly, gosh history professor Moolick.” He may not understand history, but he sure spells it correctly. There is hope for him.

Apparently, Albert Einstein wrote to one of these so-called pacifists in 1941 the following, and read it carefully: “If all the young people in America were to act as you intend to act, the country would be defenseless and easily delivered into slavery.”

Think about it, and quit faking it. Study your history!

You might start back in the American Revolution. When we had secured our precious freedom, all of the Tories were exported to Canada. They were not allowed to remain in the United States.

With terrorism rampant in the world today, it is time that the Twin Towers and the Pentagon should not be forgotten.

Remember, the terrorists are no worse than their financiers. And that the better they are financed, the more destructive they will become.

We only lost 3,000 people on this first time around.

Do not encourage these killers!
