Kilgore Trout explains why Elliot Rosewater isn’t nuts even though he probably is:
“Well---” and Trout rubbed his hands, watched the rubbing, “what you did in Rosewater county was far from insane. It was quite possibly the most important social experiment of our time, for it dealt on a very small scale with a problem whose queasy horrors will eventually be made world-wide by the sophistication of machines. The problem is this: How to love people who have no use.”
