"It is not the job of the scientist to be primarily a politician, a sociologist, a military leader or a preacher... [But]
the scientist or engineer -- like every other human being -- bears also the responsibility of being a useful member of his
community...and should speak on issues which can be addressed with competence – including joining hands with other citizens
when called to tasks of peace."
Lee A. DuBridge. "The Responsibility of the Scientist," California Institute Forum (1): 1-8. 1947.
