There were 33 uses of "Unix" in the book and 3 uses of "UNIX", so I went

Continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration
fundamentally destructive to the national fibre. To dole out relief in this
way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit.
