Everybody read this book? I agree with his assessments. If you have not yet read this in full, you should. the media portreyed him as a madman, but he was a one man revolution. :spliff:

That is quite large of a read, and too harsh for my eyes to just stare at. Is there a printable e-book version?

The average Joe is not very intelligent. The media owns him and his family and his microcosm of a community he dwells in. I look forward to reading it, if I can find a printable copy.

I hope that everyone who reads it can read it and evaluate it's content, without respect for the demonization of the author. :thumbup:

Demonization?????? The shitbag's a murderer, whatever the value of his ideas. Shit, I got some ideas you couldn't understand, but I don't blow you or your secretary up over it

My point was simply that he was demonized in an attempt to further detract from his ideology.

It would be a shame to let yourself be swayed by this when you go to read what he wrote.

Kill a man, you're a murderer. Kill many, you're a conqueror.

I have to disagree on this one. He demonized himself through the actions he took. No matter how valid/beleivable your ideology, blowing up innocent people (terrorism) will rarley make the masses sympathetic to your views. Look at what happened in Spain recently. Millions of people took to the streets to protest the alleged train bombers. Would you say that that happened due to media demonization?

The question here, I think, is whether his actions undermined his ideas. Does the fact that he killed all those people mean that we should discount his ideas as the ravings of a madman? I wouldn't say that, but one has to wonder if acceptance of his ideas lead invariably to the support for such brutal actions. Kaczynski was a murderer. No two ways about it. But that doesn't mean we should discount his ideas simply because they were his.

If he follows his own beliefs and it leads to murder. Doesn't that mean that if we were to fully understand his ideas and act on them, that we should also act in a similar fashion as him?

We can fully understand his ideas without fully accepting them and still learn from them. For example, I believe that much can be learned from reading Marx's ideas without becoming a communist.

If we are to now begin the discussion of the manuscript...

You will remember that he advocated a revolution against technology, and that this revolotion may or may not use violence.

Yeah, you can't change a thing through "channels". The "channels" themselves are set up to serve the system. Ted was trying to take out who he saw as key individuals in genetic engineering research.

You can't win a war without bloodshed. If the United States kills thousands of Iraqis civillians that had nothing to do with 9/11 with bombs intended to kill Sadaam Hussein, call it war. Collateral damage they call the innocent dead.

Oh so righteous.

But kill a few people in an attempt to save humanity from certain bondage and destruction, and he's a murderer?

I don't believe everything I see on T.V., I'm sorry.

I've read most of it before, but going to read it all now. It's very interesting, but one way or another we are going to change the way we live entirely through technology or are going to founder. Peak Oil, topsoil loss, and many other factors if not properly addressed will be the end of us in the relatively soon future.

We should have been bracing energy crisis when it was proposed with Carter.

I printed that off and read it today. He said something like our degree of freedom is dependent more on technology and economic structure than Government system. That is quite an interesting idea.

How wonderful it would be to stand amidst the smouldering ruins of industrial civilization. I always felt envious of the men who lived through the American Revolution. It must have been tough, no doubt, but it would nevertheless be exciting to be a part of such great change. Perhaps we will get our day in the sun.

So much to think about... I don't know where I'm going... I don't know what to expect anymore. Things keep going on.

There is more.
