Vonnegut on Mindless Partisanship

“And here…was the reason human beings could not reject ideas because they were bad: ‘Ideas on Earth were badges of friendship or enmity. Their content did not matter. Friends agreed with friends, in order to express friendliness. Enemies disagreed with enemies, in order to express enmity.'”
Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions
