We're returning to Einstein on Monday: Thanks to the Blows, the Marshalls, the Kings and the Taubs, it becomes increasingly clear—we actually can't have nice things.
Tomorrow, we'll return to Amanda Taub's attempt to say that over half the people in the U.S. are "authoritarians."
(Forty-four percent of white Americans are "high authoritarians!" So says Professor Taub, behaving much like the easily frightened people she describes in her endless Vox piece.)
Next Monday, we'll return to our award-winning seminar on The Culture of Incoherence. For those who are eager to read ahead, we incomparably offer these links:
In 1916, Einstein wrote his own Einstein-made-easy book. In the U.S., the book is in the public domain. You can read the whole thing here.
In 1920, Einstein's book was published in English for the first time. To read a 1920 review of the book in a American publication called The Weekly Review, you can just click this.
Three years later, the reviewer took his own life. (This was a tragedy, of course.) People, we're just saying.
We plan to return to these topics next week. Barring more trouble from King and Taub, Nova's recent Einstein-made-easy broadcast lies straight ahead.
