Technological Slavery: The Collected Writings of Theodore J. Kaczynski, A.k.a. "The Unabomber"
"Like many of my colleagues, I felt that I could easily have been the Unabomber's next target. He is clearly a Luddite, but simply saying this does not dismiss his argument. . . . As difficult as it is for me to acknowledge, I saw some merit in the reasoning in [Kaczynski's writing]. I started showing friends the Kaczynski quote from Ray Kurzweil's 'The Age of Spiritual Machines' ; I would hand them Kurzweil's book, let them read the quote, and then watch their reaction as they discovered who had written it." - Bill Joy, founder of Sun Microsystems, in "Why the Future Doesn't Need Us," 'Wired' magazineTheodore J. Kaczynski has been convicted for illegally transporting, mailing, and using bombs, resulting in the deaths of three people. He is now serving a life sentence in the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.The ideas and views expressed by Kaczynski before and after his capture raise crucial issues concerning the evolution and future of our society. For the first time, the reader will have access to an uncensored personal account of his anti-technology philosophy, which goes far beyond Unabomber pop culture mythology.Feral House does not support or justify Kaczynski's crimes, nor does the author receive royalties or compensation for this book. It is this publisher's mission, as well as a foundation of the First Amendment, to allow the reader the ability to discern the value of any document. David Skrbina , who wrote the introduction, teaches philosophyat the University of Michigan, Dearborn.
