Transcript of "The world is too dangerous to live in, not because of the p

"The world is too dangerous to live in, not because of the people who do evil, but because of the people who let it happen." - Albert Einstein

Meaning of this quote.
It means some of the most evil people are those who just sit around and do nothing. Yes there is bad people in the world but standing around and complaining isn't going to fix anything. These people need to stand up and fight back rather that sit around.
This quote connects to the holocaust because of the German bystanders that were to afraid to fight back and stand up for themselves.
Why dont people stand up for themselves?
Usually the reason people don't stand up for themselves is because they are scared for their family and their own life. During the holocaust they lived in fear of their lives being taken away from them every day.
To me when I hear this quote I think of bulling. The worst kind of people there are, are the ones that sit around and watch bulling. They are afraid of being beat up themselves and don't have enough courage to stand up for others. I hope all of us will care enough for others to stand up to bullies or anyone else for that matter.

Deeper meaning of the Quote
There is evil in this world, there is no way to avoid it. But those who sit and let evil happen are more evil then those who are committing the crime. We as a people need to learn how to act as our own self. We each have free agency (the right to choose for ourselves.) We have the right to choose if were going to let ourselves get bullied or to stand up to the bully and not only save ourselves but other people that it could effect in the future.
More Connections
Another way that this connects to the holocaust is, the Germans we're so afraid that they watched and saw their family members being taken away. (Into war.) And they were so afraid of what the Nazi's would do that they never stood up for their rights.
More reasons why people don't stand up for themselves.
Another reason why is because they don't want to be involved, or get in the middle of the problem. They are to afraid of getting hurt. Or hurting their family.
Another Personal Meaning
When I here this I think of the world today and the government. It makes me think about how many rights are being taken away from us. And how America is just sitting there watching it happen.
An Even Deeper Meaning Of This Quote
Everyone has the right to choose for themselves. That's what makes us unique. But once we let our guard down and start letting others control our life, no one is unique and people start rebel. It reminds me of how when we were reading the wave how, some people are fine being controlled. But eventually things started to get out of hand where the teacher was the only one who could control them.
