“Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act”

"Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act” is a saying that has been printed on many images. Authorship is unknown.

“Albert Einstein said, ‘Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act’” was printed in the book Rocky Mountain Futures: An Ecological Perspective (2002). “‘Those who have the privilege to know have the duty to act and in that action are the seeds of new knowledge.’ - Albert Einstein” was posted on the blog Nothing New Under the Sun on June 21, 2012.

There is no evidence that German-born theoretical physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955) ever said it. The first recorded citation is over 45 years after his death.

. The earliest reference to this I can find is this page from 2001 and no proper citations. --Kelly.stanonik (talk) 12:38, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
.. The copyright notice at the bottom of the page actually says 2005-2006, not 2001. I found a pre-2005 reference on p. xxvii of the book Rocky Mountain Futures which according to google is from 2002, but again no original source is given. Hypnosifl (talk) 20:36, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
