The Unabomber Inside of Us

Background: With all that the mainstream media has to say about the Unabomber, what are we to believe? If we're to believe the reductionist hype, the Unabomber is merely a reclusive mad genius, a former professor turned antisocial loner obsessed with fighting the horrors of industrial society. In truth, the Unabomber lives very much among us. However strained and convoluted his language, he speaks to the alienation and powerlessness rife in American society, and he voices much of the anger and despair that push more and more people to pick up the gun or seek isolated refuge in militias and gangs. Eric Magnuson and Carl Boggs offer insight and a surprisingly accessible profile of the Unabomber.
