D O C U M E N T S 1 2 1 , 1 2 2 J A N U A R Y 1 9 2 8 1 3 3 121. To Alfred Einstein Berlin, 4 January 1928 Dear Dr. Einstein, Many thanks for the letter you forwarded to me. Always very glad to be of ser- vice. As you see, I am enclosing a card that was meant for you, but sent to me. Yours sincerely, A. Einstein 122. To the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom Berlin, 4 January 1928 I will not be in Geneva in March, because I have nothing to do with the disar- mament conference. However, I gladly take this opportunity to present to you my fundamental position regarding the questions to be discussed there. It seems to me completely futile to try to set specific rules and limitations for war. War is not a game, and therefore cannot be waged according to the rules of a game. One can only battle war itself, and this can most effectively be done from the side of the masses by organizing an absolute refusal to perform military service on a large scale and even in peacetime. The initial movements in this direction that are to be found in England and Germany are very promising. In my opinion, your league’s best option is to do all it can to support this movement, even though you might lose a few members by taking such a radical step. If you want a German as a lecturer, I recommend the international law teacher Schücking, whose address you will easily find in the League of Human Rights. Respectfully yours, A. Einstein P.S. I authorize you to use this letter as you see fit.
