Kasten has described the genesis of the book as his experiences in a rural community "It was 1970, and my family had recently moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to a town in the San Joaquin Valley…One evening I found myself sitting on a couch at my friend Earl's house…Walter Cronkite was finishing up a newscast with a bit of commentary. He spoke about the dangers of making up one's mind too quickly and labeling events before fully understanding them…His concluding phrase was something like, "Let's not be too quick to use the label-making device." Earl looked over at me. "Do you know what the crap he was talking about?" Kasten has said the book is an attempt to answer that question.
