SUMMARY Cat's Cradle

FREE READ õ Cat's Cradle En este libro nada es ciertoJonás o John se propone investigar ué estaban haciendo los norteamericanos más destacados el día en ue se arrojó la bomba en Hiroshima Las cartas ue intercambia con el hijo menor del doctor Felix Hoenikker –uno de los padres de la bomba atómica– lo zambullen en una intriga familiar ue oculta la m. Most people have read Cat s Cradle so I won t bother to try and hide spoilers Did you say you hadn t read it Well what are you waiting for This isn t Ulysses you know it s short and funny So now that it s just us people who know the book I want to say why I disagree with the criticism you often see that it s too fragmentary On the contrary I think it s very focused and makes its point with near perfect economy and wit There are two obvious themes One is how the irresponsible use of science to construct ever deadly weapons is probably going to end up destroying the whole world The other is a wonderfully crazy take on religion Each of these themes is satisfying in its own right what s less clear is that they have anything to do with each other Let s look at the first theme Vonnegut s scarily plausible thesis is that it won t be a uestion of some madman destroying the world on purpose I love General Jack T Ripper in Doctor Strangelove the obvious movie parallel to this book but I find him somehow less convincing than the series of deranged helplessly incompetent people in Cat s Cradle Felix Hoenikker an obvious Asperger s type invents Ice 9 in response to a casual uestion from the US military His three damaged children get hold of the secret and exploit it for their own petty ends Plain charmless Angela sells it to the Americans in exchange for a playboy husband Newt the midget gives it to the Soviets for a dirty weekend on Cape Cod with a tiny Russian dancer and fatally humorless Franklin sells it to Papa Monzano who makes him a Major General in the largely imaginary army of San Lorenzo a bankrupt state I believe loosely based on Haiti and the Dominican Republic After that things just proceed by themselves nothing works in San Lorenzo so why would you be able to successfully guard a doomsday device And sure enough it gets used completely by accidentThe second theme is presented through Bokononism a kind of Caribbean version of Christianity and surely the best fictional religion ever devised Is there any person here who s never tried boku maru Unfortunately in real life it doesn t have the effect described in the book Pity Bokononism is the one thing that makes life worthwhile for Papa s miserable subjects Officially the religion is outlawed in practice everyone is a Bokononist which makes their lives rich and meaningful Everything about the religion turns out to be a lie and there is even a technical term foma for the lies that make up its substance None the less Vonnegut succeeds admirably in showing what a good religion it is The scene where Dr Schlichter von Koenigswald reads the Bokonist last rites to the dying Papa Monzano is funny but also moving I love the line Nice going God which expresses that particular sentiment with unusual clarity and feeling it s extremely respectful while pretending to be the exact oppositeSo what is the connection between the two themes I think in fact that Vonnegut tells you straight out but since he does it at the beginning a favorite ruse of crime writers you don t uite notice it He introduces Bokononism and recounts its creation myth which is absurd even by the standards of this magic realist genre Then he cheerfully tells you that Bokonon himself admits that it s all lies Finally he comments in one of his better known uotes Anyone unable to understand how a useful religion can be founded on lies will not understand this book either As already noted Bokonon s wise lies in fact make an excellent religionHere s what I think he means by this The potential destruction of all life on Earth isn t a very amusing subject It s so horrifying that you can hardly think about it at all But Vonnegut manages to present most of the book as a comedy so that you are able to think about it which we desperately need to do before it s all too late By making it funny he is formally lying to us but these lies are useful to us than the truth we re in pretty much the same situation as the San Lorenzans who couldn t survive without their mendacious religion People during the Cold War were with good reason scared shitless that the world was going to end soon in a nuclear holocaust We came terrifyingly close during the Cuba Missile Crisis As Christopher Hitchens says do you remember where you were the day JFK nearly killed all of us There were many books and movies intended to help people relate to what was going on Some of them just presented the threat straight up in as realistic a way as they could manage the version I like most is Shute s On the Beach But I would say that the mirror reversed ones like Cat s Cradle and Doctor Strangelove were better It s amazing how powerful a weapon humor is I feel they did to help persuade us not to blow ourselves up We need these people badly if we re going to stay sane Can someone point me to a new Vonnegut who knows how to make us laugh at global warming and the financial meltdown I d rather like to read him Perfect Murder
