Human beings are chimpanzees who get crazy drunk on power

Kurt Vonnegut has a wickedly excellent and stupendous and outstanding article about America and Oil, of all things. Although really it’s about everything. What can I say? It’s outstanding. I’d quote the whole thing, just to get you to read it, but that probably wouldn’t work anyway, so I’m just going to ask you nicely. Please read it.
