Wars WORTH Fighting – And Dying – For (Voltaire)

The story goes …

Agents of Frederick The Great detained Voltaire in Frankfurt for 3 weeks, while they, Frederick and Voltaire, argued over the return of a book of poetry – not with swords or guns or bombs or oil – but through letters. 

Now that is a war worth fighting – and dying – for.
