Resource titleThe Unabomber's Secret Treatise: Is There Method In His Madness?
Author/sourceKirkpatrick Sale
Date published 1995
Summary text/ abstractThe central point the Unabomber is trying to make – that "the industrial-technological system" in which we live is a social, psychological and environmental "disaster for the human race" – is absolutely crucial for the American public to understand and ought to be on the forefront of the nation's political agenda. We disagree, to be sure, about what is to be done about all this and the means by which to achieve it. In the course of his career, at least as the F.B.I. has reconstructed it, the Unabomber has carried out sixteen bombings, killing three people and injuring twenty-three others, apparently choosing targets in some way connected to modern technology – a technological institute at Northwestern University, the University of Utah business school, a Salt Lake City computer store, a University of California geneticist, and a Yale computer scientist, among others – to try to "propagate anti-industrial ideas and give encouragement to those who hate the industrial system." That strikes me as simple madness.
