In Dr. Theodore Kaczynski rejected modern society and moved to a primitive cabin in the woods of Montana. There, he began building bombs, which he sent to professors and executives to express his disdain for modern society, and to work on his magnum opus, Industrial Society and Its Future, forever known to the world as the Unabomber Manifesto. Responsible for three deaths and more than twenty casualties over two decades, he was finally identifed and apprehended when his brother recognized his writing style while reading the 'Unabomber Manifesto.

Genres Nonfiction. Publication Roma, Stampa alternativa, stampa Description In Dr. This is mostly a clear, logical, and well-reasoned attack on the social problems caused by industry and technology, and in support of reversion to a more primitive and small scale subsistence society.
However, a number of moral and practical caveats remain, and what we are left with does not achieve its purpose of justifying the violent means of destroying the modern technological and industrial society that we currently find in developed countries. This work is still important for a number of reasons though.
Despite being over 20 years old now, it was prescient in touching on a lot of the topical dangers and ethical issues related to advances in technology and restriction of human freedom that we now face more than ever. These include: artificial intelligence AI and its future dangers, nuclear threat from rogue states North Korea et al , genetic modification and "designer babies" etc, the mechanisation of labour and workforce displacement, the increasing control over human behaviour via technological monitoring style , the existential meaningless of modern consumer culture and exploitation via advertising, and the lack of psycholigically satisfying jobs for the majority of the populace which results in frustration and lack of fullfillment.
Instead, it is human behavior that has to be modified to fit the needs of the system. Most of his points carry a lot of weight, are well thought out, rational, and based on evidence. Yet where it falls down, the call to violent revolution, is that it all comes down to personal preference.
He makes the case for why technology and industry are bad, but he doesn't propose an alternative system that is as likely to function as well on a practical level as the one we currently have. And many people would not willingly give up the benefits of technology and industry, and would not want to live in a hut without electricity and running water. In all, a thought provoking book which raises a whole raft of important social issues relating to technology and industrialisation many of which are even more important now than when the book was written.
However it fails in its goal of convincing the reader that the current system needs to be destroyed, firstly because it is diffucult to justify the violence of a revolution, and secondly as the consequences and practicalities of the proposed replacement system are not well enough thought through, and unlikely to outweigh the current system in their benefits.
