Reasons to hate him
Well, what I personally did not like about Voltaire was his lack of common sense. Voltaire must have believed that making fun of people who have invited him to their residence as a guest would make them want him more. Honestly, there is a difference between being strong, independent, and dedicated with writing and just flat out insulting your hosts. His lack of common sense made Voltaire annoying and rude instead of just opinionated. This, in my opinion, was the worst thing about researching Voltaire. The fact that he got kicked out of almost every place he was invited into is appalling.
