My dear,

You speak about ideas I don’t believe in, you’re passionate about things I don’t find all that interesting, and sometimes I find everything you say to be a test of my nerves.

… But I’ll never force you to simmer down, or go behind your back and ask the government to ban you from uttering things I don’t agree with.

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

I disagree with a lot of what you say, but your right to say it should never be up for debate.

No being should live with shackles on their feet or on their tongue.

Falsely yours,
François-Marie Arouet
