If you have read this masterpiece, what are your thoughts on it?

Would the systematic practical application of one's theory really lead to "delirium"?

Dostoyevsky makes the observation that "organized thought" tries to nullify human nature and come up with a fixed system where the environment is everything, and the environment, which is supposed to be ideal, is enough to prevent "crime" as we know it. Everything is supposedly trivialized before human comfort, which is placed foremost and is accepted as the human goal.

Maybe, I've understood it wrongly! :)
You will say that I don't really know you
And it will be true.
