“…the underground man is nothing if not self-contradictory. He craves isolation–and thirsts for human contact. He envies the average man–and would not be one. He rejects the laws of nature–yet explains his inertia as their inevitable product. He seeks sympathy fron his reader, at the same time doing everything he can to preclude it…He suffers–and proclaims his pleasure in that.”

Donald Fanger, from his Introduction to ‘Notes from Underground’ by Fyodor Dostoevsky

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
