    Recent while driving through Princeton, New Jersey we slopped briefly to talk with Professor Einstein.

    During the short conversation we quickly came to the point i.e. his opinions on certain Marxist teachings, and asked whether or not the Professor recognized the class struggle. After that,
    part of the conversation went about as follows;

    Einstein: Yes. of course. The German and English and American capitalists have also caused this war. And fascism everywhere is very possible… very possible.

    We: In America also?

    Einstein: Yes. In America.

    We: And when do you think the working people will realize this?

    Einstein: The workers in America will not understand soon. They still have the best conditions in the world, among the working peoples The French workers understand., the British… but the American workers will be the last to wake up.

    We: What do you think of Marx’s principles?

    Einstein: His main thesis is right. I agree with Marx but not with his teacher, Hegel.

    WE: Then what is your opinion of dialectics?

    Einstein: Well. I haven’t found the dialectic approach too useful, but still the only answer is socialism.
