Voltaire

QuestionAnswer
How did Voltaire influence the U.S. government? Voltaire spoke out for freedom, particularly freedom of speech. This is a big part of our government today.
Why was Voltaire imprisoned? Voltaire offended the French government and the Catholic church, and they wanted to stop Voltaire from speaking up for people's rights.
Was Voltaire for big or small government? Voltaire supported small government. We know this mainly because he wrote against large powerful governments.
What quote did Voltaire make famous? "I disapprove of what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
Why did Voltaire go by this pen name. He wanted to protect himself from the French government and Catholic church, because he knew they wouldn't like what he was saying about them.
