The Need For Roots: Prelude To A Declaration Of Duties Toward Mankind; Translated By Arthur Wills; With A Pref. By T. S. Eliot - Simone Weil With this reading of a fourth book by/on Weil, I'm beginning to understand that her astounding and mystical insights into man and God are not sullied by the almost absurd naivety of her "solutions" to the problems that exist which, when implemented or taken seriously, end ironically in the hellish nightmare of an inhuman bureaucracy, the kind of which we see today sprouting up all over the West. Weil is to be looked at for inner understanding and not for temporal advice.
