Was Einstein Right About Global Civilization?
Princeton University has released a website called Digital Einstein, containing many writings by Albert Einstein that were previously unknown by the general public. Among these is a Manifesto To The Europeans, which begins with the declaration that, “technology and traffic clearly drive us toward a factual recognition of international relations, and thus toward a common world civilization”.
This document was written during World War I. Was Einstein right in his judgment? Has technology and improved travel created a global civilization? In what respect do we have a single human civilization?
