Albert’s thoughts on OCS

“I am firmly convinced that the passionate will for justice and truth has done more to improve (the human condition) than calculating political shrewdness which in the long run only breeds general mistrust.”

Albert Einstein, “Moral Decay,” 1937

  • Wow! I had no idea that Einstein was a seer! That’s so awesome that he was able to look into the future, focus on CouchSurfing, and then make such an elegant quote about it and how troubling it is. Thanks for sharing his thoughts about CouchSurfing with us! It’s very enlightening.

  • Dear anonymous poster, your cynicism is noted. I know it sounds funny to talk like that when you’re… uh… 16 years old, but most of us have gotten over it by now. The quote clearly addresses a well known “human condition” and is therefor perfectly applicable in any timeframe. Or are you saying CS isn’t willing to learn from the past?

  • Thanks should go and meet up Um commenting elsewhere on this blog, both are in Chicago :)
