"It is dangerous to be right when the established authorities are wrong." - Voltaire

In our illustration, we give this quotation a modern, Orwellian twist. A simple equation is given a "truth" makeover by the authorities. We'd like to think that Voltaire's objection to the depicted defacing would not so much be the false assertion of the five, but the censorship of the four. Voltaire would have equally defended the five had it been the other way around, and therein lies the genius of his principle. As he is often paraphrased as saying, "I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

This fashionable unisex tee fits like a well-loved vintage favorite. The slimming cut features a crew neck, short sleeves and is made with superior combed and ring-spun cotton that takes the water-based inks beautifully.

The Bella Canvas unisex tee is the fashion industry’s best seller and although it’s slim cut, it’s not too tight and never boxy (see size chart in photos).
