Who would he be today?
- Today, Voltaire would probably still be a writer. He may qualify to be a blogger because professional bloggers can get paid to blog and write opinions. Another job he could have today would be a critic of some kind because he loved to judge people and what they do. As some sort of critic, Voltaire would be able to be opinionated and get money for it.
- A person that he can be compared to from this day in age could be either Kanye West or Howard Stern. Both of these people have hard times shutting their mouths. Both of these men get in all sorts of trouble for publicly announcing their opinions, or making comments left and right. From Kanye's Taylor Swift interruption to Stern's radio comments, these two men probably manage to anger just as many people as Voltaire did. Although these men did not get exiled from the USA, they have managed to anger a great amount of people.
