Ben McCleish joins KMO and Silas in the C-Realm to summarize and discuss the first two chapters of Ted Kaczynski's new book Anti-Tech Revolution: Why and How. This discussion mostly focuses on the why. Kaczynski may be a murderer, but he is no misanthrope. His aim is to defend human freedom and save all life on Earth from the relentless maw of the techno-industrial system. He thinks that the techno-sphere will render the planet uninhabitable by complex organisms and that reform and rational guidance are impossible. Only an anti-tech revolution stands any chance of preserving a life-sustaining planet.
