Yet if Yossarian makes any attempts to excuse himself from the perilous missions that hes committed to flying, hes trapped by the Great Loyalty Oath Crusade, the bureaucratic rule from which the book takes its title: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes the necessary formal request to be relieved of such missions, the very act of making the request proves that hes sane and therefore, ineligible to be relieved.
