Einstein made numerous changes to the existing way of doing physics that caused different groups of people to pick on different things and protest; this divided opinion so that no one could unify to protest against the whole package. It was a case of divide to conquer. If Einstein had made just one change to the existing physics then organization could have been raised to protest about that one change. But because Einstein made numerous changes it divided the opposition as they picked on different things to disagree about. Although there was a big opposition movement to Einstein, Einstein had succeeded in dividing them so that they could not agree on one specific issue to oppose Einstein on. So although the Opposition was big they could not unify to defeat Einstein, and so Einstein seemingly won by default- not that there was agreement with him, but merely because the opposition could not unite to find a replacement to him.
