Patriotism, the MISTAKEN will attempt In discredit him. This may prove
to be shaky ground for the MISTAKEN,
identifying them to an alerted people
for what they are and disclosing the
tenor and tone of their plot.
The Patriot will be termed "anti-this"
hi "emli-thal." or ridiculed as old-fashioned. However, be should succeed, for
today he is armed with the most natural
force or instinct in human history—

Brooklyn Police Lieutenant Edward
Shea has succeeded where some of
America's an- reporters have failed —
in gelling Professor Allien Einstein s
theory, not of relativity, but of politics.

Shea lohl how the idea to write to Prof.

"Since nobody present seemed to be
familiar with what liis political philosophy really was. I offered to write and
find onl." explained 1.1. Shea.
His efforts drew the following letter

SOCIETY'S OLD RIDDLE
In commenting on the second sentence
eef llr. Einstein s letter, another program guest, George Hamilton Combs,
said. "It restates lln- eelel riddle of our
organized society: To what extent ma)
a citizen he given liberty or exercise
liberty in such a way that it will mil
violate lhe greatei or overweening good
of socicl\ as a whole?
"Thai particular phrase, 'as is desir
able in his own interests,' seems to me
lo he a somewhat equivocal phrase,
Mr. Combs continued. "Il could he interpreted in two ways. Il could mean
that the' stale- could he the judge of lhat
quantum of power or liberty given to
him with which I am not theoretically
>nl luii whii-h is probably neces-
-ai \ as a pragmatic matter. Or it could
mean that the degree of liberty given
him should he- consistent wilh his own
best inter,-sis eis a member of society, as
a member of the community wilh the
interacting responsibilities of such communal membership."
lb- went on to say thai Professor
Einstein's political philosophy comes
rinse' le, paralleling his own. "I'm strong- \
ly inclined to the belief thai this posat
lhe great problem of our limes. How do
we- preserve the largest area of personal I
liberty consistent with our security and |
with the maintenance of organized SO"
ciety? He has put it perhaps inversely-
hut if I may slate it. it's this: How do
we- manage to safeguard the greatest
possible measure of individual freedom
within lhe context of a society which
musl enjoy certain protection and afforo
"SHEER POLITICAL INCOHERENCE"
Another program guest. William
Buckley, Jr., stated, ''I think that tin'
letter received by l.t. Shea is an excel
lent example of sheer political ini-nli''1'
en,-,-. Put it this way: I think thai tbj

This. I think, is illustrated von well '''

"Here is a man." Mr. Buckley eiddc^
