Reclusive, taciturn, mordant, non-Luddite and a pissant diarist who inscribes atrocious verbal pabulum–writhing with delusion of eloquence (or the lack of it). Leads a façade life of charade incarnate.
No mask like open truth to cover lies. As to go naked is the best disguise.
“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.”
—H.L. Mencken, Smart Set Magazine, Dec 1919.
