Max likes to think of himself as an average person, not stupid or ignorant, or a genius; he is a moderately talented draftsman. He’s not poor but he’s not paid a lot of money either. The hard left and right of politics with their rigid points of view frighten him. He finds he can easily engage in conversation with people as he has a little bit of knowledge on just about anything that is the subject of conversation. He is a well read man. He is mister normal.
