"The world that we have made as a result of the level of thinking that we have done so far, has created problems we cannot solve at the level of thinking at which we created them."
Albert Einstein
(1879-1955) Physicist and Professor, Nobel Prize 1921

Reader comments about this quote:
I think he had it, the closest thing to an answer to it all. I've heard one of the last things he did before he passed away, was to say "in conclusion, there must be a God." Another great individual blessed being able to live and grow in the U S A

    Someone has got to come up with a more level of thinking then he had. But I do not know of anyone in these times that may be even equal to his level of thinking much less above it.

    Higher thinking is unlikely to occur during these times of public education and media propoganda. And even if it di, it would be quickly stifled by the control freak "One Worlder's"

    Higher thinking is unlikely to occur when people run their life on crazy belief systems rather than fact based reality...

    Perfect!!!!! you can't solve problems using the same strategy that created them.
     -- RBESRQ     
    Like the idea that the People need rulers and regulations on what they may buy, sell, eat, drink, breathe, who they may marry, how they have sex, what they must wear, who they must serve, what 'sacrifices' they must make, who they must pay for their 'security', what power they may have, what skills they may use, what permissions they need from anyone else to live their lives. This is the same old story -- someone somewhere thinks that the world should be governed according to their philosophy by force -- usually for the benefit of those who wish to call the shots and rig the game in their favor. This they call 'progress.'

    This site proves daily that thinking has disappeared from the planet. Archer spews his garbage and I meet people every day that have immigrared here for a more free life style. Makes one really ponder does it not.

    Do yourself and everyone else a favor Waffler...stick to Communist websites.

    Archer, well said. As A from Reston and Robert have alluded to, you can't solve the problems of socialism (communism to fascism), statist theocracies, or any ism that is a law unto itself acting against natural law with more socialism, totalitarian theocracy, or unlawful tyrannical dictators. One problem with compelled compliance, governmental license, victimless crimes, larceny with immunity, or unlawful codes, ordinances, regulation, rules, statutes is, freedom, liberty, the inalienable rights can not be enhanced, or protected with more compelled compliance, governmental license, victimless crimes, larceny with immunity, or unlawful codes, ordinances, regulation, rules, statutes
