Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5

Kurt VonnegutSorry to have delayed posting this, but in case you missed it, last week’s Saturday Play on BBC Radio 4 was Slaughterhouse 5, a dramatisation of Kurt Vonnegut’s powerful anti-war novel. You have until 4.02pm this Saturday, 20th Februay, to listen on i-player.

Kurt Vonnegut was honorary president of the American Humanist Association. He thought religious doctrine was “so much arbitrary, clearly invented balderdash.”

Vonnegut said,

New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become.
