The narration by the Underground Man is laden with ideological allusions and complex conversations regarding the political climate of the time period. Using his fiction as a weapon of ideological discourse, Dostoyevsky challenges the ideologies of his time, mainly nihilism and rational egoism.  In Part 2, the rant the Underground Man unloads on Liza as they sit in the dark is a moment in which such a discussion of clashing ideologies occurs. Liza believes she can survive and rise up through the ranks of her brothel as a means of achieving her dreams of functioning successfully in society. However, as the Underground Man points out in his rant, such dreams are based on a utopian trust of not only the societal systems in place but also humanity's ability to avoid corruption and irrationality in general. The points made in Part 1 about the Underground Man's pleasure in being rude and refusing to seek medical help are his examples of how idealised rationality is inherently flawed for not accounting for the darker and more irrational side of humanity. The Underground Man argues that underlying the gilded understanding of society is what he tells Liza will end up leading her down a calamitous path and ultimately destroy her.

Our church is one made up of not just individuals, but communities. In fact, the Underground is a fellowship of these microchurches - groups that reach out to their neighbors ( home-based churches ), seek to reach certain populations ( mission-based churches ), serve to see the Kingdom come on university campuses ( campus-based churches ), and finally those that labor globally to share the Gospel ( global movements ). There are currently over 100 microchurches that form our makeup in the Tampa Bay area. We believe firmly that people make up the church, not buildings or budgets, or even leaders. When believers work together in sincere worship and genuine community to accomplish a part of the mission of God, they are the church. We believe the larger church expression exists to serve the smaller, and not the other way around.
