The following is an unpublished passage written by Joseph Heller in 1965 that was printed in the New York Times at some point in the mid-1970's. I found it in a newspaper clipping while I was cleaning out a deceased relative's belongings from a closet. It is and will probably remain the single most scathing piece of literature that I have ever read, and manages to sum up my feelings about the government in under 300 words. Read the full piece after the jump.
There is no official title, however the headline of the clipping reads as follows:
'This is called National Defense'
