Something not to forget ...

"Alle sollen sich schämen, die sich gedankenlos der Wunder der Wissenschaft und Technik bedienen und nicht mehr davon geistig erfasst haben als die Kuh von der Botanik der Pflanzen, die sie mit Wohlbehagen frisst."

Freely translated: "Everybody should be ashamed who uses the wonders of science and engineering without thinking and having understood not more of it than a cow of the botany of the plants which she eats with pleasure."

Albert Einstein, Rede zur Eröffnung der Funkausstellung 1930

Unfortunately, some in society and many in politics seem to have forgotten that ideology and wishful thinking will not change physical and economic laws and are no substitute for studying the facts and working hard. History books tell the story about those who didn't believe it ...

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

George Santayana, Life of Reason
