Can anyone offer a link to any of this supposed "scholarly discussion" that claims Vonnegut's bleakly fatalistic worldview is only meant to be ironic, and that the book is actually praising free will? I certainly never got that out of the book. The air of incredibly depressing fatalism seemed deadly sincere to me.

If there is, in fact, no such "scholarly discussion," or at least not very much of it, could we please remove it from the novel's trope page? It could still go under the WMG tag or some such.
