It is a science fiction short story by Kurt Vonnegut, originally published in the digest magazine Worlds of If Science Fiction, January 1962, and collected in Vonnegut's Bagombo Snuff Box (1999). The title is pronounced "2 B R naught 2 B", referencing the famous phrase "to be, or not to be" from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. In this story, the title refers to the telephone number one dials to schedule an assisted suicide with the Federal Bureau of Termination. Vonnegut's 1965 novel God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater describes a story by this name, attributing it to his recurring character Kilgore Trout,  although the plot summary given is closer in nature to the eponymous tale from the short-story collection Welcome to the Monkey House.
Save the Planet
The to natural progression of anti-human environmentalism. While a human is ‘just another animal’ his actions are destroying the earth; poppycock !!The height of hubris!
I didn’t know what to expect going in. A very curious and dark thought experiment. It changed so suddenly towards the end there. I’d imagine the writing would be much more fluid in its native language
This is one of the most depressing views of the future that I have ever read!
What makes it so depressing is that it seems to be informed by Mr. v’s possible WW II knowledge of the death camps and the earlier eugenics views that many held throughout that time.
