Deceptively simple, indeed. The continued prevalance of Voltaire's tale is interesting, isn't it? I have a friend who just recently curated an exhibit on Candide and it's recurrence/resurgence in art (literature, music, theater, song). I suppose it is because the search for the ideal, if not perfect, world is a constant. I don't think her scholarship extended beyond the arts to include the realm of legal theory, but I would be interested to hear what she has to say on the topic.
