Other People Are Robots

I think my biggest insight from reading Vonnegut was that there are actually a lot of Dwayne Hoovers out there. The character in the novel is mentally ill, but I think it's reasonable to see his syndrome, the belief that he is the only free willed person in the universe, as is fairly common among people we don't actually classify as having mental illness. I try to run from these people.
