Voltaire and the Future

It seems bizarre that a country that gave the world some of the greatest thinkers, such as Voltaire should be living in fear.

One thought on “Voltaire and the Future

  1. Isn’t fear a by-product of moral equivalency? If there is no light, nor darkness, then one may encounter the dangers of living without boundaries. I think these offenders are preying on the normalcy bias of western civilization. We believe that offenses can be dealt with through reason, clarity, and human understanding. Why would someone hate me for existing? That is my question.
