Fake Geniuses Of The 20th Century
This man was a fraud, backed by other frauds, who in turn sought testimonials from other frauds to back up their frauds.
How difficult is it to prove a man is a liar when every single thing that emerges from his mouth is a lie, going back to the day he was born? Einstein didn't do his own mathematics, his wife did and she didn't do them very well. His wife was rewarded with his infidelity with at least ten other regular mistresses. The raw payoff from charlatanry and swindling if it results in fame is that it makes it very easy for the conman involved to sleep with a lot of women. That's what Einy the Heiny did - parlay his fake celebrity into a lot of fornication. What this idiot knew about physics you could have written on the back of a postage stamp.
The reason the common man is so confused is that he is very confused and it's really hard to unconfuse someone who has been so thoroughly confused.
The real geniuses of our civilization are also the most anonymous. The biggest frauds have had the most airtime. The very best are known the very least.
It is hardly a wonder the society has failed so rapidly and so profoundly in so many ways. It is so sick and upside down that sanity is only a fondly remembered dream in the forgotten past.
