Ted Kaczynski got it right. You may disagree with his method of getting attention but he was right. All this left wing / right wing talk is just a sideshow. Both sides end up arguing for the same thing. Each side wants to eliminate the freedoms of the other side.
It all ends up in the same place, Marxism. Big government and absolute power. When a politician gets some power, what does he want? More power. Government abuses are getting more and more common, and Bridgegate is just the latest example. And what is driving this? The answer is, surprisingly, technology. Technology allowed the NSA to spy on all of you. Technology allowed western society to push its philosophy onto the whole world through media. But I can hear you saying, "how can technology be responsible for all this society's problems?". Easy, because when you consider that technology has resulted in pushing all of our goals into 3 categories.
Category 1 is for goals that are easy to achieve with little or no effort. Category 2 is goals that are achievable but only with significant effort. Category 3 goals are those that are not achievable regardless of effort. Modern society tries to move all basic needs into category 1. Water, food, shelter, education, entertainment, etc. Things that modern society doesn't want you having it moves into category 3, power and weapons for example. Category 2 ends up being filled with manufactured goals, those created by modern society to control you, e.g. to sell you something. And people in modern society end up spending more and more time on manufactured category 2 goals.
A technological society depends on this process. It can't progress without it. So the things that people today complain about are only going to get worse.
Why will this lead to Marxism? Look at politics today. Every political party takes some aspect of our social life and they politicize it. So they now can spend all their time arguing over how best to control that part of your life. It doesn't matter which side of the aisle you are on, it only changes which argument you end up making and which topic you concentrate on. Whatever the politcal parties argue against, they all are arguing for Marxism. Quite a few people have said that Marxism, or Socialism, is inevitable. Yeah it may be. Becuase I don't see anyone arguing for anything else. In the end this will prove the ultimate truth, that governments don't work. And that is why I'm an anarchist. Welcome to the Dark Carnival.
The Unabomber Manifesto does a good job of explaining what we see going on today. And its why the government couldn't just put him in jail. They had to convince you that he is crazy. But he is not crazy. He's right. And our governments have done much worse than sending a few small bombs in the mail.Unabomber Manifesto
