By Ted Kaczynski
The Unabomber was America’s most wanted man, responsible for sixteen bombings in as many years, killing 3 and injuring 23 more. It took the FBI nearly 18 years before they were able to catch him and he was identified as Theodore J. Kaczynski. It was in 1995 when the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski first broke his silence, following an unprecedented deal. He would call off his one-man war on techno-industrial society if the media would publish his reasons for it. With the technocracy of America held hostage, the media could only comply. When published, the Unabomber came across as a forceful yet an articulate advocate of primitivism, not the crazed serial killer of the FBI’s personality profilers. His radical critique of techno-industrial civilization, Industrial Society And Its Future, captured the imagination of many of America’s public that can now see that technology and liberty are not always compatible.Despite Ted’s crimes, in today’s modern age of social media and technological boom, his manifesto could carry a much stronger message.
