Paul Kingsnorth’s article Dark Ecology outlines an internal struggle that arises from his reading of Technological Slavery: The Collected Writings of Theodore J. Kaczynski, a.k.a. "The Unabomber." A third of the way through Kaczynski’s book, Kingsnorth finds his arguments “worryingly convincing.” Kaczynski was a modern Luddite, seeking to destroy a system that he felt was destroying us. Although his actions were reprehensible, his thoughts on technology are worth considering. Dark Ecology does more than attempt to label certain technologies as good or evil— a conversation that stagnates quickly.
