one of the central points made by Kesey who is as humanist as Kurt Vonnegut and as fun as a barrel full of monkeys Chief’s dramatic and dynamic evolution is the barometer of this great workThe Chronics and acutes When McMurphy arrives at the institute the residents are informally divided between the chronics – those whose condition has demanded their lifelong commitment; and the acutes those whose insanity may be temporary and remedied Interestingly many are there voluntarily McMurphy’s friendship with Chief an erstwhile chronic and his championing of the acutes status is a central theme of the book“What do you think you are for Chrissake crazy or somethin' Well you're not You're not You're no crazier than the average asshole out walkin' around on the streets and that's it ”Like Upton Sinclair’s muckraking journalistic exposures in The Jungle Kesey’s novel can also be seen as a bright light shined on the mental health facilities in the 60s“He Who Marches Out Of Step Hears Another Drum”A book that should be read
