You Will Know the Truth

Voltaire wrote:

“Certainement qui est en droit de vous rendre absurde, est en droit de vous rendre injuste”

Voltaire, Collection des Lettres sur les Miracles, 1765

I translate that as:

“Certainly who has the right to make you absurd, has the right to make you unjust”

The quote has since evolved to:

“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”

Given the number of Clown-Serial Killers in DC (Congress and the Executive Branch), I prefer the current translation.
