Anti-Tech Revolution: Why and How by Ted Kaczynski

A little while back, I received a book from the publisher of Kaczynski’s second book (see below). It requested that I do not put the contents of Kaczynski’s new book on my website, with the vague implication of legal action. It was probably sent at Kaczynski’s request.   Fortunately some people have already put PDFs […]

From this, and also from the […]

Ted Kaczynski’s Letter to the Saturday Evening Review (1970)

Source C. W. Griffin, Jr., exaggerates the extent to which Americans romanticize the freedom, independence, and adventure of the frontier. In any case, such romanticization should be regarded as a symptom rather than a disease. A happily married man does not daydream about romantic love. Similarly, a man does not romanticize frontier freedoms unless he is […]

Progress versus Liberty (“The 1971 Essay”)

In these pages it is argued that continued scientific and technical progress will inevitably result in the extinction of individual liberty. I use the word “inevitably” in the following sense: One might—possibly—imagine certain conditions of society in which freedom could coexist with unfettered technology, but these conditions do not actually exist, and we know of […]
