 My past and thoughts; the memoirs of Ale… by Aleksandr Herzen | LibraryThing
Herzen had a quick ear for bombast; no one comes near him in registering the gamut of pathos and grand opera, mendacity and stoic bearing, dialectic and gossip in which Bakunin, Mazzini, the ostracized French socialist leaders, and what remained of the German radical movement led their frustrated lives.
Herzen was a liberal-even, in certain respects, a democrat-but he was also the son of a nobleman and a man of means.
Herzen sensed that the very condition of the intellectual, of the freethinker, is one of persistent exile, either inside his own community or, more commonly, in flight across its borders.

 Alexander Herzen and the Native Lineage of the Russian Revolution
Herzen's life was one of painful uprootedness and profound alienation, but neither he nor the larger bulk of those whom he continued for decades to inspire can best be described as “socially unattached”.
Herzen was slow to absorb the implications of the growth of the state bureaucracy and the expansion of the student body at the universities.
Herzen's definition of education and its effect is vital: education made them into something else because they simply could not allow themselves to become officials, landlords, or generals; certainly it was out of the question to become a peasant or worker, at least so far as Herzen was concerned.

 TIME.com: The Lost Philosopher -- Sep. 10, 1956 -- Page 1
Born in Moscow a few months before Napoleon entered the Czar's tinder capital (1812), Alexander Herzen grew up a bastard aristocrat in a land of serfs, hating the vast sloth of the barbarous empire.
With a visionary eye he looked across the steppes of history and foresaw that the witless crudity of the Czar's bureaucrats might be less evil than a regime speaking in the name of brotherly love.
To the end of his days Herzen prayed for the hopes of revolution—and yet, in Paris, he was dismayed when the revolution of 1848 degenerated, with soldiers of a republic shooting down its own citizens.

They had been given sixpences to do so by a renegade Russian aristocrat living in their midst, Alexander Herzen.
He was a babe-in-arms during the French occupation of burning Moscow, when his father unexpectedly became a messenger between Napoleon and the Tsar.
His immediate programme demanded the abolition of serfdom, capital punishment and censorship, but his central principle was that the goal of life is life itself; that we must not sacrifice the flesh and blood of live human beings upon the altar of idealized abstractions.
