Kilgore Trout finishes explaining why Eliot Rosewater isn’t nuts even though he probably is:
“Americans have long been taught to hate all people who will not or cannot work, to hate even themselves for that. We can thank the vanished frontier for that piece of common-sense cruelty. The time is coming, if it isn’t here now, when it will no longer be common sense. It will simply be cruel.”
---from God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut.
