The notion of "the irrationality of groups" is present in many (or most or even all) of Vonnegut's works, from Slaughterhouse-Five to Hocus Pocus

Groups often believe in things that are both dangerous and untrue, while indivduals are looked at as being sick or ineffectual because they don't go along with the majority view. Cat's Cradle deals with this idea, as do the two titles mentioned above.
