    Although I have not read his entire manifesto (just exerpts and several different summaries), I have long believed that Kaczynski's message wasn't all that bad. His delivery, on the other hand, left much to be desired.

    I would say only as prophetic as a seer who predicts that the price of postage stamps will continue to rise. Of course it was inevitable that the government would make increasing use of technology to control its people. That is the way it has always been.

    Yeah, who knows, one day the government might create some crazy cool world changing technology and give it away for free - then use it to spy on folks.

    Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you.

    Lengthy manifestos are so retro. Get a blog or a twitter account. Reduce to 140 characters and maybe I'll read it. Oh wait, that's technology.

    If you want a conspirator in the World Domination business, google the term "Google." They ARE the giver of free stuff. A close second is Facebook. I just don't think their ultimate goal is the same. Now the new owners of Facebook? That is an entirely different matter.

    Uni used transportation of a modern world, to blow up people who invented a more modern world.

    He should be on the can of planters as he is the poster boy of nuts.

    A good rule of thumb: If somebody's giving away a product for free, YOU are the product.
