    Voltaire died in 1778 and never got to see the effects of democracy in America. From the writings of Tocqueville, the US was the first country to give legitimate power to the people. I wonder what Voltaire would have thought about this "grand experiment".

    However, just because you disagree with someone else in power doesn't automatically mean you're credible. And vice versa, of course. In fact, it's almost like positionality doesn't determine the correctness of argument!

    It’s almost unfortunate how relevant this quote is to our modern times.

    Everyone believes they are right. It takes something egregious for people to stop and see through the self deception that allows us to believe we and our group are more right, more just and simply better than we are. That's a problem regular people have to say nothing of people raised with a bad set of ideas or people with personality or mental disorders. It's not dangerous to be right, it's dangerous to be convinced of something much different than a powerful audience.

    I'm a liberal, and I'm no fan of Trump. But pro-lifers protesting outside an abortion clinic are probably using this quote to be like "we got to protest harder, we gotta save those fetuses . . . cuz we're right, and the government is wrong for allowing this legalized murder of the unborn to take place"
