The way Karenin deceives and rearranges his though process to please himself is a wonder to behold. Hypocrisy doesn't even begin to cover it.
Passed without post before, a whole chapter/discussion on the difficulties of marrying self-interest to social interest from the privileged, and more of Levin becoming more level by labor. Oh, and some oblique showing of the perils and lies in over-blown piety. By the time I'm done, I likely will have a nice collection of the authors opinion on EVERYTHING.
