In Candide, Voltaire satirizes the belief in a philosophy of optimism even in the face of misfortune.  He also uses satire to poke fun at religion, kings, the state and people who behave foolishly.

Candide uses a lot of satire to make fun of the Church and the King. He also makes fun of Pangloss's theory.

Most of the time, Candide uses satire to make fun of Pangloss and his theory that all is for the best. Also, he mostly makes fun of the church, king, and the members of the aristocracy.
