We read a lot this quote from Voltaire from 1765 those days.

Supposedly the real one is:

“Vous croyez des choses incompréhensibles, contradictoires, impossibles, parce que nous vous l’avons ordonné; faites donc des choses injustes parce que nous vous l’ordonnons. ……. Certainement qui est en droit de vous rendre absurde est en droit de vous rendre injuste.”

The basic translation using basic tool on internet gives this:

“You believe things that are incomprehensible, contradictory, impossible, because we have ordered you to do so; So do unjust things because we command you to. ….. Certainly who is entitled to make you absurd is entitled to make you unjust.”

Would it mean that we need to use our own judgement… whoever is giving  orders, wherever the orders come from, so we can always act “fairly”?
