"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.
