The desire to impose order on the universe – punk rock version

All talk at Ars Math over whether mathematics appeals to a desire to impose order on our existence made me think of “Where Next Columbus” by Crass. Video below the jump.

As attempts to impose order on our existence go, we could have done a lot worse. That the lyrics (sort of) identify Einstein with nuclear weapons is kind of annoying but otherwise I love this song.
