Kurt Vonnegut speaks out against the war
(David Hoppe, NUVO, January 10, 2003)
Vonnegut continues to be a cultural presence, speaking out against war with Iraq to 10,000 protestors at a rally in New York's Central Park . . . Vonnegut has long argued that we are, ultimately, planetary citizens � whether we realize it or not. . . . don't want to belong to a country that attacks little countries. I don't want to belong to that kind of a country. . . . psychopathic personalities � hereinafter P.P.s � the medical term for smart, personable people who have no conscience. P.P.s are fully aware of how much suffering their actions will inflict on others but do not care. They cannot care. . . . An American P.P. at the head of a corporation, for example, could enrich himself by ruining his employees and investors and still feel as pure as the driven snow. A P.P., should he attain a post near the top of our federal government, might feel that taking the country into an endless war with casualties in the millions was simply something decisive to do today. . . . They really don't give a fuck what happens � not even to themselves. But this is a serious defect and, no, we haven't been invaded and conquered by Martians. We have been conquered by psychopathic personalities who are attractive.
