Storyboard Description

Voltaire continues his social criticism in this part of the scene with the greedy Magistrate, but also criticizes optimism at this point, stating that with the misfortunes of all the men as well as Candide, even Pangloss wouldn't be able to uphold optimism. Voltaire criticizes optimism as needlessly positive, and states that the only place where things could be the best is in a place that doesn't actually exist.
