PostSubject: Road to Revolution - Kaczynski   Sat 26 Dec 2009, 12:34 am



Theodore J. Kaczynski isn’t just America’s most infamous prisoner: he is a true myth in his own right. Throughout the years he has become synonymous for loner genius turned serial killer, or mad scientist turned murder maniac. But there is much more to the Unabomber than the letter bombs and the 17-year FBI manhunt, ended in 1996 with his life imprisonment. This book contains the first and definitive authorized edition of Kaczynski’s writings.

Long before his criminal endeavors, as early as the late 60s, Kaczynski started to develop a visionary set of theories that could be loosely branded as ‘radical ecology’. The most famous of his writings, Industrial Society and Its Future, is published here in its only authorized version, along with many other texts, essays and letters. From his prison cell, Kaczynski leaves the bombs behind and sets on to demonstrate, with painstaking accuracy, that technology is leading humanity to its demise. The environmental catastrophe, in his views, is but a logical consequence of man’s scientific self enslavement. Calling for a total and final end to all technological research and industries, Kaczynski takes the reader through a radically new way of thinking the now trendy battle for the environment.

1. Industrial Society and its Future & Postscript to the Manifesto

Excerpts.....
http://www.unabomberbook.com/en/doc/citations/index.html


“I would argue that in order to be successful a revolutionary movement has to be extremist.”

“A well-socialized modern anthropologist is therefore faced with a conflict: Since he is supposed to be tolerant, he finds it difficult to say anything bad about primitive cultures. But primitive cultures provide abundant examples of behavior that is decidedly bad from the point of view of modern Western values. So the anthropologist has to censor much of the “bad” behavior out of his descriptions of primitive cultures in order to avoid showing them in a negative light. In addition, due to his own excessively thorough socialization, the politically-correct anthropologist has a need to rebel. He is too well socialized to discard the fundamental values of modern society, so he expresses his hostility toward that society by distorting facts to make it seem that modern society deviates from its own stated values to a much greater extent than it actually does. Thus the anthropologist ends by magnifying the competitive and individualistic aspects of modern society while grossly understating these aspects of primitive societies.”

“The university intellectuals also play an important role in carrying out the System’s trick. Though they like to fancy themselves independent thinkers, the intellectuals are (allowing for individual exceptions) the most oversocialized, the most conformist, the tamest and most domesticated, the most pampered, dependent, and spineless group in America today. As a result, their impulse to rebel is particularly strong. But, because they are incapable of independent thought, real rebellion is impossible for them. Consequently they are suckers for the System’s trick, which allows them to irritate people and enjoy the illusion of rebelling without ever having to challenge the System’s basic values.”

“Still, I am not one of those who predict a worldwide physical and biological disaster that will bring down the entire technoindustrial system within the next few decades. The risk of such a disaster is real and serious, but at present we do not know whether it will actually occur. Nevertheless, if a disaster of this kind does not come upon us, it is practically certain that there will be a disaster of another kind : the loss of our humanity. Technological progress not only is changing man’s environment, his culture, and his way of life ; it is changing man himself. For a human being is in large part a product of the conditions in which he lives. In the future, assuming that the technological system continues its development, the conditions in which man lives will be so profoundly different from the conditions in which he has lived previously that they will have to transform man himself.”

“If revolutionaries today were to abandon all illusions about the possibility of creating a new and better society and take as their goal merely the death of the industrial system, they might well succeed in reaching that goal.”

“Leftists are useless as revolutionists because most of them don’t really want to overthrow the existing form of society. They are interested only in satisfying their own psychological needs through vehement advocacy of “causes”. Any cause will do as long as it is not specifically right-wing.”

“Bear in mind that, as technology continues to progress, there is no guarantee that representative democracy will always be the political form best adapted to survive and propagate itself. Democracy may be replaced by some more successful political system. In fact, it could be argued that this has already happened. It could plausibly be maintained that, notwithstanding the continuation of democratic forms such as reasonably honest elections, our society is really governed by the elites that control the media and lead the political parties. Elections, it might be claimed, have been reduced to contests between rival groups of propagandists and image-makers.”

“All the published versions of the Manifesto are incorrect. They contain serious errors.”
