Many others believed that at the time -- before the real truth about Stalin became known.
Einstein may have been the smartest Physicist, but he was grossly mistaken about political systems, if, indeed, he held Socialism to such an esteem.
But I doubt, that's true -- National Socialism, which Einstein barely escaped, was Socialism too, and I don't believe, he liked it...
Simply put, Socialism is "Communism Light" -- wherever attempted in earnest, it proved to be the most murderous ideology known to man so far.
USSR, North Korea, China, Cuba -- all killed millions of their own citizens trying to establish the "worker's paradise". And what was the result of that coercion? The surviving millions toiled in dire poverty and without any human rights...

I found Chester, Joseph and Hanna. J&H live two houses down from Chester and Mary. Chester is a general agent for fertilizer. Everyone else is a farmer. Could this be them? Is Mary an adult or a child, judging from what she does?

He was not known to be smart regarding economics, politics or human nature, just math and physics.
The Aura Effect is the false belief that just because someone is good in one area, that he must necessarily be good in others. If you want to tell me Einstein knew physics and math, then yes, he did.
But I would no more expect him to deeply grasp economics and politics than I would expect him to be able to have rebuilt a transmission or to have performed heart surgery.

lol. he may have been the smartest person of his time, but you cannot say that he was the smartest to ever live. also, what do you suggest is the best political system? because I could name off every pro and con of each and every one of them. its based upon opinion.

Even smart people buy into idealism. I agree that capitalism has its flaws, but socialism is also easily corrupted by human nature.

Capitalism is a social system that values ability, skills, hard work, intelligence, discipline and achievement, thus, inspiring people to work more. Unlike socialism, in which people can afford to shirk their work, in capitalism, traits such as laziness, impracticality and inefficiency, are penalized.
