Voltaire

Focus Points

He did not like that people were narrow minded; rebelled against the Christianity denomation.

“...It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. People must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.”- Anthony LaVey

Anthony LaVey believes that people should only believe what is real and not have any assumptions until you know for a fact that it’s true. He wanted people to not bother one another with either their problems or beliefs, unless they were asked or know for a fact that the person they are talking to absolutely wants to hear it.

“Fanaticism is to superstition what delirium is to fever, what rage is to anger. He who has ecstasies and visions, who takes dreams for realities, and his own imagination for prophecies is an enthusiast; he who reinforces his madness by murder is a fanatic…”-Voltaire

Voltaire believed that you should not have conclusions nir actions implied when not enough evidence is present. He doesn’t like that people had murdered mostly just because they were fanatics who were superstitious about witchcraft and not having solid real proof that people were witches. He believed that people should be tolerant of others and their beliefs. He mainly wanted people to have evidence and be able to support their ideas with real facts. He didn’t like that people, mostly christians, were so narrow minded and refused to even think that their ways were even remotely wrong.

John Locke

Focus Points

He believed humans were born with natural rights, such as life, liberty, and property.

Due to John Locke we are now able to talk freely about anything we wish, thanks to the natural rights he thought of.
