Alan from the work truck:

“But the culture in which I and almost all whites were raised vainly imagines that hunger, sleeping and excreting can be regimented. Amerindians have always mocked the prefaces for looking to clocks to know when they ought to be hungry. It is in the same clock- mad spirit that we are all supposed to work from nine to five on such preposterous projects as accounting for what we have done upon billions of square miles of paper derived from devastated forests, frittering away our time upon such dreary gambling games as playing the stock market  or selling insurance in drab offices, turning out drillions of lines of chatter for people whose minds cannot be at peace unless perpetually agitated with information and misinformation, and manufacturing, selling, and advertising bizarre, noisome, and pestilential automotive contraptions for taking us all to and from these same projects at the same hours- thereby blocking the roads and jangling our nerves, presumably to give ourselves the message that we really exist and are really important.”
