Voltaire & Free Speech..................from Rico

When I saw that the brave free-speech advocate, and contemporary British lion, Tommy Robinson was arrested for merely reporting from outside a Muslim Rape Trial [think: grooming gangs] my first thought....er, second actually- the first was Rue Britannia - was the Voltaire quote:
 
"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."
 
But there is a lesser-known quote from Voltaire that is especially apt in this circumstance as well:
 
"It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong."
