The Unabomber's Manifesto: 'Industrial Society and It's Future' (AUDIOBOOK PODCAST)
SPOTIFY & APPLE LINKS:
This podcast/audiobook is one that lay at the nexus of first-degree murder, militant ideology, and a multi-decade manhunt. That is to say, we will be looking at the primary source writings of one of the most notorious American terrorists of all time: Dr. Theodore John Kaczynski aka Ted Kaczynski aka Uncle Ted aka...The Unabomber
Kaczynski wanted a militant anarcho-primitivist bottom-up revolution reminiscent of the Luddite uprising from the early 1800s. But worldwide this time.
And he hurt a lot of people in his failed attempts to spark the aforementioned revolution.
In total, he killed three people and wounded 23 others over a 17-year period. Crimes that would eventually lead to him to a guilty plea on 10 counts of the production, shipping and utilization of deadly explosives and three counts of first-degree murder.
And this would land him in ADX Florence (a super-max prison in Colorado) where he will be serving 8 consecutive life sentences without the chance for parole.
And by all accounts, his health is in rapid decline and he was recently hospitalized.
This podcast is an unedited presentation of Kaczynski's manifesto presented in audiobook styling.

Cheers and stay tuned.
