That’s profound! I immediately thought of German society during the Weimar years and WWII.
I agree. Sadly, that’s just one of many examples.
Like Cindy, I also thought of WWII as soon as I read this. Great quote.
Just as relevant now as ever. He really was ahead of his time.
So true, unfortunately.
Oh Boy!! How true. Especially when it comes to the kind of easily brainwashed people in SL, that exist today.
I almost wish it wasn’t such a brilliant quote.
oh, our dear Voltaire, one of the titans of world’s culture and philosophy… his statements are still true and real nowadays.
What a mind he had! Like he could see into the future really.
I love this quote! It’s so funny (and not haha funny) that this quote from the 1700’s still rings true today. I immediately thought of today’s media and how people believe everything they say.
It really is a wonderful quote. He had some mind for sure.
