Introduction: life is more important than art or social engineering, eutopia, and evolution -- How I stopped worrying and loved behavioural engineering, or communal life, adaptations, and B.F. Skinner's Walden two -- You're not in Canada until you can hear the loons crying, or voting, people's power, and Ken Kesey's One flew over the cuckoo's nest -- You'll never make a monkey out of me, or altruism, proverbial wisdom, and Bernard Malamud's God's grace -- We better kill the instinct to kill before it kills us, or violence, mind control, and Walker Percy's The Thanatos syndrome -- It can't happen here, or politics, emotions, and Philip Roth's The plot against America
