If Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid the perilous missions he's assigned, he'll be in violation of Catch-22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule which specified that people who were crazy were not obliged to fly missions, but anyone who applied to stop flying was showing a rational concern for his safety and was therefore sane and had to fly.
