Conventional Modern society and it is Future

industrial Society And Its Future

If you want to read a critique of modern industrialization and it impact on nature and society by someone who’s not a violent terrorist and has solutions beyond blowing shit up Murray Bookchin is probably a betyer bet. Anarcho-primitivism is a fairly well-established critique of large-scale social organization powered by “industrial” technology. Maybe read about neo-tribalism and small-scale living in eco-villages/eco-towns, if you don’t want to go deep into anarchist thought. Ironically enough, the closest thing we get to ‘large-scale (even world-scale) rational and compassionate cooperation’ is the very “industrial society” mentioned in the OP. You may not like industrial and post-industrial society, but it’s not clear that there’s any alternative if you want “everyone” to be involved. It’s not that his writing or his ideas are dangerous; deranged killers will find reasons to maim and murder people whether or not we write blog posts about “manifestos”.

The leftist wants equal opportunities for minorities. When that is attained he insists on statistical equality of achievement by minorities. And as long as anyone harbors in some corner of his mind a negative attitude toward some minority, the leftist has to re-educated him.

Anarco-primitivism now seems like a sensible ideology and not an insane hermit’s illusion. Politicians influence public opinion about public policy. His killings appall me, but are not a valid reason in themselves to ignore his political theories.

Ted was not above using the postal service to carry out his attacks, but he did want to make the bombs himself. To answer my own question no I don’t think society is acceptable and when it treads on me I stand up for myself, but I’m not going start a fight with a stranger just because I can and others would. When I do start a fight I own it and the reason for it I don’t blame technology or society for my actions.

Fascinated, I read everything I could find about the Unabomber, including Alston Chase’s thoughtful biography A Mind for Murder. The son of Polish immigrants, Kaczynski had grown up in a working-class Chicago neighborhood. Handsome, clean cut, polite, he might have been popular with the other kids—if he hadn’t been so much smarter and more sensitive than they were, if he and his parents hadn’t been so much more cultured and racially tolerant than their peers. Shipped off to Harvard at 16, Kaczynski was scorned by his snobbish preppy classmates. If that weren’t enough to stoke his anger, he was pressured to enroll in a series of pointless mind-control experiments carried out by a sadistic psychology professor who was secretly working for the CIA. The Unabomber’s ties to my new employer ran even deeper than Nick Suino’s wounds.

In 1995, Kaczynski mailed several letters to media outlets outlining his goals and demanding that his 35,000-word essay Industrial Society and Its Future be printed verbatim by a major newspaper. Bob Guccione of Penthouse volunteered to publish it, but Kaczynski replied that Penthouse was less “respectable” than the other publications. He said that he would “reserve the right to plant one bomb intended to kill, after our manuscript has been published”. The New York Times and The Washington Post both published the essay on September 19, 1995. Leftism’s goal is collectivist, wanting to unify the entire world, both man and nature.
