Simone Weil on Power

Force, she suggested, is not used by those who think they are using it.  Instead it uses them,  Force destroys all who come into contact with it.
The weak are oppressed by it, the strong intoxicated.  Weil started out as a materialist and became an idealist; at twenty she was almost a Communist and by thirty she was almost a Catholic though she never formally identified with either group.She is one of my heroes.Collapse )
