A blind person with a bundle of pencils in one hand and a tin cup in the other. Myshkin's observation that Rogozhin's love and hate are indistinguishable is correct but the prince as blind to his own flaws as Rogozhin is to his does not recognize that Nastasya Filippovna is a woman, early oriented to sex.

Do you think disabled people are still treated as children today? One of the best lines of the book is in the very beginning when it talks about what to call people with mental retardation. He is the author of No Pity: People with Disabilities Forging a New Civil Rights Movement. Rogozhin is animal-like, instinctive, and uneducated; he cannot accept Myshkin's explanation that the prince pities Nastasya Filippovna and that he has no sexual desire for her and wants only her happiness. The lack of acceptance of anything other than what makes you feel comfortable about your own insecurities and fears? With a little help this would be an attainable reality. One main point that is repeatedly mentioned in the chapter is how it is not the actual disability that makes a person disadvantaged. Yet, how far can we go with this before we start to take away from them their independence? Are there still things that happen that makes us dismissive towards those with disabilities? A surprising note is interjected when the news is given that the mayor is a complete teetotaler.

No Pity's chronicle of disabled people's struggle for inclusion, from the seventeenth-century deaf communities on Martha's Vineyard to the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992, is only part of the story. The ten chapters document the personal and public struggle of self determination, frustration, anger, and victory. As already has been noted, the idea of an individual holding within himself a continual clash of wills fascinated Dostoevsky. Do you think Burgdorf should have said something to the court about this instead of just saying there would be no way anything positive could come out of it?

Joe Shapiro's brilliant political and human-interest reporting will change forever the way we see people with disabilities; all who read No Pity will recognize that disability rights is an issue whose time has come.

Summary Myshkin's next call is to a house he has wanted to visit for some time — that of Rogozhin. All it takes is a little help and a little instruction to get people where they need to be in order to take care of themselves and live productive lives on their own without constant supervision.
