quoted in the biography by Walter Isaacson, 2007, Simon and Schuster:
From a sermon by Einstein at Caltech in 1930—
“…science had not yet been harnessed to do more good than harm. During the war it gave people ‘the means to poison and mutilate one another’ and in peacetime it ‘has made our lives harried and uncertain.’ Instead of being a liberating force, ‘it has enslaved men to machines’ by making them work ‘long wearisome hours mostly without joy in their labor.’”
Have things changed much in the last 79 years?? (I was born in 1929).
