Surely P is a victim regardless of whether D acted exploitatively or merely obtusely.

For if the I-narrator stated openly what the narration appears to be implicating (through a breach in Grice's maxim of quantity), i.e., that he (the I-narrator) knows that he (the I-character) was being obtusely sentimental at the time of utterance, the subtle effect of irony resulting from the I-character's repetitions would be spoiled.

Feuer rightly notes that nationalities are never capitalized in Russian (although early drafts of Anna Karenina show that Tolstoy on several occasions capitalized "Russkii"), and that, in his diary, Tolstoy often referred to Rousseau with an abbreviated "R--." It is possible that Tolstoy is taking issue specifically with the anti-monarchical aspects of Rousseau's "social contract," which explains why Tolstoy emphasizes, albeit obtusely, the need for a republic that honors monarchic rule.
