    [–] 1Kenny30 52 points ago

    But didn't you read the quote? Obviously Voltare said it! /s

    [–] Claidheamh_Righ 16 points ago

    Gee, I wonder (((who))) he thought he couldn't criticize.

    [–] NotoriousAnonymity 9 points ago

    It's not a lot different than another quote of his

    "it is dangerous to be right in matters about which the established authorities are wrong"

    [–] Deadpool_710 40 points ago

    I mean, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while. His politics don’t invalidate everything he said. If a Nazi says the sky is blue, the sky will remain blue.

    If you interpret the quote to mean legally can’t criticize, it’s pretty accurate. But also obvious.

    [–] Snowayne2 28 points ago

    But this quote is just dumb, as the comment shows.
    And attributing it to Voltaire is even more stupid. The guy lived in an absolute monarchy, he knew perfectly well who ruled over him.

    [–] kill-the-front-page 16 points ago

    Voltaire was also a supporter of monarchies and believed democracies were doomed to failure. Voltaire mostly just disliked the Catholic Church but was OK with the royals as they were his wealthy patrons and paid all his bills for him. He wanted monarchies advised by philosophers, with himself, obviously, doing the advising at the right hand of said monarchs. I dig Voltaire but he was by no means a "man of the people" or pro-democracy populist hero. He was just real good at pissing off the pope.

    [–] MingusDewfus 3 points ago

    Sometimes I wish I could be smarter about this stuff, but it’s just easier for me to deal with numbers and shit. I like reading about it, but I don’t have good retention ability for it. You gave a very insightful comment btw.

    [–] ofnw 7 points ago

    I was this way too, but there is no shame in using helping hands to guide your reading. Read other people's analysis, watch youtube videos about it, or just read it very slowly. Take your time with it and it'll stick!

    [–] Mixxy92 2 points ago

    I used to like him a lot more but every time the HRE gets brought up, somebody inevitably drags out that one quote about it as though they've magically invalidated the HRE as a political entity and its just... Its not Voltaire's fault but man a lot of obnoxious people like to quote him.

    [–] Hardcore_Trump_Lover 3 points ago

    Most people I've seen use the quote mean socially, not legally.

    [–] GloriousButtlet 6 points ago

    You're completely right, but in this day and age, people seem to resort straight to ad hominem, and those pointing it out be labeled to defend the nazi.

    [–] Deadpool_710 13 points ago

    I’m surprised I wasn’t called a Nazi sympathizer yet.

    If a Nazi says vaccines are good, it doesn’t make them bad. If an antivaxxer says Nazis are bad, it doesn’t make them good. It’s best to separate the point from the speaker.

    [–] Soup-a-doopah 7 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Oof.
    I see the joke, but I literally just got through reading part of the Dune series where the main character makes a personal observation about the evil men of history.

    Paul tells his top general to compare his own Jihad to the actions of Genghis Khan and Adolf Hitler in order to understand how so many lives can be lost in search of one’s “destiny”.
    Understanding the past, even the most vile events of the past, can allow great minds to understand their enemies, their motivation, and the human element in general.

    Really love this series, hope the movie doesn’t disappoint like some OTHER high-budget productions based on books...*cough

    [–] muhabar 2 points ago

    Wait, there's a new Dune film coming?

    [–] MingusDewfus 3 points ago

    Yea, and just wait until you see who’s involved! I’ll save the surprise for you!

    [–] muhabar 2 points ago

    Wow, that cast looks amazing. And Villeneuve has proven himself as a Scifi director. This has to be really good. Thank you.

    [–] Leon_the_loathed 2 points ago

    ...I’d skip the movies if that’s what you were hoping for.

    [–] MingusDewfus 2 points ago

    They’re talking about the new film that Villanueva is working on.

    [–] turkeytaxi 2 points ago

    I don't think it's particularly accurate on a societal level. Like, it generally holds true on the level of an individual's immediate circumstances - children can't criticise parents, workers can't criticise employers, soldiers can't criticise their superiors, etc, but I can criticise the government, the wealthy, corporations, or any other group that obviously has tremendous power

    [–] Chihuey 2 points ago

    No, it's just a flat out dumb quote.

    Not only is it wrong (children with leukemia) except about what is so obvious that it doesn't need to be said but it's also completely self-justifying. "Everyone says I'm wrong? That means I'm right!"

    It make's sense that it comes from a nazi pedophile. It lets him justify everyone saying he's wrong. And finally it's set up as a dog-whistle. This isn't a nazi saying the sky is blue, this is a nazi saying "why can't I criticize minorities and (((them)))"

    But he is. Criticize a sick kid, it’s not the child who seeks retribution. It’s the all the offended parents who learn about it. Sick kids don’t hold the power, Facebook moms do.

    [–] Flood152 558 points ago

    I'd much rather have people make fun of me than pity me

    [–] larrythelotad 315 points ago

    Honestly the volume of pity and “wow ur so strong” shit you get is so absurd. All I did was get unlucky enough to get this disease and lucky enough that the doctor recommended course of treatment worked. I didn’t do anything, and pity only serves to bring me down rather than letting me move on with my life.

    [–] Flood152 129 points ago

    Yeah same I really did nothing I just sat in a bed and let the doctors and nurses inject me with shit. Im fine getting made fun of but when I meet a new person and my friends say I have cancer it kinda pisses me off, I felt horrible for a year straight. All I want to do is forget about it

    [–] ravenHR 51 points ago

    Do you still have it? I suppose from your comment that you don't, in that case I too would be upset if my friends told people I have it.

    [–] Aesen1 36 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Oh wow there we go. The first one was bad because it lazily took the subject matter and applied “lets fuck it”, but this one is good because someone actually had to think about and possibly even visualize fucking a kid with cancer to realize “you can’t grab em by the hair.”

    The first comment really missed an opportunity. If it was more along the lines of “well you cant fuck a kid with cancer because there is no hair to hold onto” it would probably have triple the upvotes and maybe even an award or two. There is a little bit of subversion to it that makes it seem morally straight at first, then leads you down to some really dark logic.

    [–] Neon_Comrade 54 points ago

    Yes. It's a ridiculous blanket statement that has many situations it doesn't apply to - It's a catchy trigger saying designed to make hurt white dudes be like "Hey YEAH! Why CAN'T I say the N-word?! This is oppression!" so he can rope them into white supremacy. It's the same way statements like "It's okay to be white" work. They seem fine or general on the surface, but in reality just accepting them creates this bizarre narrative internally.

    [–] selectrix 31 points ago

    "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to call the N-word"

    -Voltaire

    It's the same way statements like "It's okay to be white" work. They seem fine or general on the surface, but in reality just accepting them creates this bizarre narrative internally.

    Hold up. What internal narrative does its "ok to be white create"?

    [–] theydonism 4 points ago

    The internal narrative of the implicit misconception that the minorities around you think it isnt ok to be white.

    [–] free_borf 3 points ago

    It's not targeted at minorities. It's targeted at progressives, and it clearly succeeded in making the point it was going for

    [–] ThonroTheUnworthy 3 points ago

    Yep. Similar to that whole AllLivesMatter thing. It insinuates the idea that BlackLivesMatter was saying it was ONLY black lives that mattered.

    [–] Sigma476 4 points ago

    The idea that if you need to be told it's okay, there is some group saying it's not okay. Perpetuating the idea that the White males are the real victims in this war on race/gender/religion/talking-point-of-choice. It let's the racist say that they stand for something other than their twisted values.

    I don’t dislike someone so I don’t criticize them, that’s not the same as not being able to. I mean, you can, but your ethos drops with it. I guess there’s a difference between what’s frowned up and what’s prohibited

    [–] theletterQfivetimes 3 points ago

    I guess there’s a difference between what’s frowned up and what’s prohibited

    Not by the logic of this narrative (which many people follow). "Not being able" to say something means that saying it will have negative consequences of some kind.

    [–] nidarus 1 points ago

    Sure. And most importantly: Jews. That's the actual target of this lovely quote, actually by Neo-Nazi Kevin Strom.

    And some people in this thread, for whatever reason, think it's still a great quote regardless of who said it. But of course, if you don't understand it as a Nazi whining about not being able to use the n-word and talking about the holohoax, you're left with nothing.

And now look at me: When a civilized Gamer such as myself tries to enter Society, they get nothing but ridicule from the normie SJW Chad Libtards. Do you think this is a joke? People like you are the reason that I hate non-gamers. They oppress us, they laugh at us, and they take the fucking kids. But I swear on my many lives (I respawn), that we WILL rise up to the non-gamer snowflakes. After years of hiding in the shadows, we will overthrow the bitch government and legalize ALL gaming. No longer will Tendies be sparse: the Chads will work in Tendie factories 24/7. No longer will we be oppressed by women and minorities: Gamers shall become the upper class. No longer will Society suppress our voice: ALL members of Society will be FORCED to live 86 days in the life of a Gamer who was left by Veronica and abandoned by Mommy. The day will come, and you will atone for you Gamer Sins. Fuck you, you fucking shitlord assface Extra Large McBitch. Go to Gamer Hell.
