Albert Einstein as Scientist and Socialist

If your school-age son is somewhat better than clever in any field
of science, you may have heard the expression: "He's an Einstein."
It is indeed unprecedented that the name of a scientist working in
highly specialized mathematical physics has become a by-word in the
homes of his adopted land. This unique status of Albtrt Einstein rests
not only on his scientific pre-eminence but also upon his keen interest

Dr. Einstein's great scientific works—the Special Theory- of Rela-

Why Stalin Needs Slaves: Forced Labor Under Bureaucratic Collectivism (1947)

The experience of all ages and nations demonstrates that the work done by slaves, though it may appear to cost only their maintenance, is in the end the dearest of any ... [The slave] can have no other interest but to eat as much and to labor as little as possible. Whatever work he does beyond what is sufficient to purchase his own maintenance can be squeezed out of him by violence only, and not by any interest of his own. (Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations)

Another Day: British Socialists Meet For European Unification (1949)

The British Center of the Socialist Movement for the United States of Europe, in its London conference, October 22-23, attended by delegates or observers from local Labor Parties, the Independent Labor Party, the Commonwealth and Fabian Societies, as well as several unions and
pence organizations, produced a series of resolutions which are of importance to the world socialist movement.

April 1940: the USSR and and the World War

The outbreak of the Second World War has once more put prominently at the top of the order of the day the “Russian question”.

Socialism, the hope of humanity (1945)

What Do the Socialists Want? What is socialism? The simplest way to find the answer to these questions is to ask yourself: "What do I want? What do the tens of millions like me throughout the world want?" Everyone has different tastes, different ambitions, different hopes. But almost all are agreed in wanting durable peace in a world free of the scourge of war; security and prosperity in place of unemployment and low standards of living; freedom and equality in place of special privileges, special rights and special powers for the minority, in place of the rule of the many by the few.

The anatomy of the Stalin-made left

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling Party Line,
You are lost and gone forever,
Dreadful sorry, Party Line.

Leon Trotsky was a Nazi,
And I know it for a fact.
First I read, then I said it,
Before the Hitler-Stalin Pact.

(Anti-Stalinist song of the 1940s, to the tune of “My Darling Clementine”)

Fenner Brockway, the leader in the 1930s and 40s of the anti-war Independent Labour Party, tells a story from 1939 in his second volume of memoirs, Outside the Right (1963).
