Brexit’s Imminent Arrival & Great Britain’s Political State of Inertia – Part II

“Loose talk about proposals for negotiations is irresponsible. We agreed that it is now time for Boris Johnson to produce his own proposals in writing – if they exist. If no proposals are received by the end of September, then it’s over.”

– Atti Rinne, Prime Minister of Finland and current President of the European Union with Emmanuel Macron, President of France at a Paris press conference on September 18th, 2019.

Going by the words of the EU President Atti Rinne said on September 18th, it appears Britain’s current Prime Minister hasn’t even gotten around to putting any of the United Kingdom’s concerns in writing at this beyond critical stage of the Brexit game.

Fritz Haber – Modernity’s Mutable Angel of Life and Death, Part II : Killing Millions

As Fritz Haber saw it, he was a German first and foremost, in particular, a Prussian. So when War broke out in the summer of 1914, Haber did what any good Prussian would do – the man devoted every waking minute to the War effort to ensure victory for the Fatherland.

This is reflected in the quote he is remembered most for saying:

“During Peace time a scientist belongs to the world, but during War time, he belongs to his country.”
– Fritz Haber

Many within his field could not have wholeheartedly disagreed more with Haber’s stance on Science’s role in times of War, such as his good friend Albert Einstein, who said on numerous occasions during both World Wars that his only allegiance was to being a Pacifist.
