15. Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of 
being strong, good and successful. They hate 
America, they hate Western civilization, they hate 
white males, they hate rationality. The reasons that 
leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not
correspond with their real motives. They SAY they 
hate the West because it is warlike, imperialistic, 
sexist, ethnocentric and so forth, but where these 
same faults appear in socialist countries or in
primitive cultures, the leftist finds excuses for them, or 
at best he GRUDGINGLY admits that they exist; 
whereas he ENTHUSIASTICALLY points out (and 
often greatly exaggerates) these faults where they 
appear in Western civilization. Thus it is clear that 
these faults are not the leftist's real motive for hating 
America and the West. He hates America and the 
West because they are strong and successful.

16. Words like "self-confidence," "self-reliance," 
"initiative," "enterprise," "optimism," etc., play little 
role in the liberal and leftist vocabulary. The leftist is 
anti-individualistic, pro-collectivist. He wants society 
to solve every one's problems for them, satisfy 
everyone's needs for them, take care of them. He is 
not the sort of person who has an inner sense of 
confidence in his ability to solve his own problems 
and satisfy his own needs. The leftist is antagohistic 
to the concept of competition because, deep inside, 
he feels like a loser.

18. Modern leftish philosophers tend to dismiss 
reason, science, objective reality and to insist that 
everything is culturally relative. It is true that one can 
ask serious questions about the foundations of 
scientific knowledge and about how, if at all, the
concept of objective reality can be defined. But it is 
obvious that modern leftish philosophers are not 
simply cool-headed logicians systematically 
analyzing the foundations of knowledge. They are 
deeply involved emotionally in their attack on truth 
and reality. They attack these concepts because of 
their own psychological needs. For one thing, their 
attack is an outlet for hostility, and, to the extent
that it is successful, it satisfies the drive for power. 
More importantly, the leftist hates science and 
rationality because they classify certain beliefs as 
true (i.e., successful, superior) and other beliefs as 
false (i.e., failed, inferior). The leftist's feelings of 
inferiority run so deep that he cannot tolerate any
classification of some things as successful or superior 
and other things as failed or inferior. This also 
underlies the rejection by many leftists of the concept 
of mental illness and of the utility of IQ tests. Leftists 
are antagonistic to genetic explanations of human
abilities or behavior because such explanations tend 
to make some persons appear superior or inferior to 
others. Leftists prefer to give society the credit or 
blame for an individual's ability or lack of it. Thus if a 
person is "inferior" it is not his fault, but society's,
because he has not been brought up properly.

22. If our society had no social problems at all, the 
leftists would have to INVENT problems in order to 
provide themselves with an excuse for making a fuss.

So spot-on.

Makes me suspect we’ve been massively lied to about what he stood for, what he fought for, the real nature of those he targeted and harmed, his reasons, all of it.

Bob,

No.

Madmen often speak the truth in the midst of their madness and delusions.

More often than not, when they are right (at least in the writings of the madmen I have studied, including L Ron Hubbard), like in the case of Kazcyski here, they attain profound insights about specific things they look at and identify.

Sometimes one part of the brain is laser-targeted genius level while other parts are cockeyed. You deal with science. How many mathematicians and inventors does my comment apply to? 

From the things I have read by Kazcyski, and about him, he falls into the same general category. Including the math part, for that matter. But instead of talking to imaginary friends, washing his hands 180 times a day, or switching into a wolf when the mood stuck him, he liked to play with bombs.

:) 

Actually, the mind control stuff done on him by the US government and Harvard of all places were filthy crimes concocted by elitist assholes who used the Cold War as an excuse to treat humans like lab rats.

Kazcyski has agency and free will, so there is no excuse for his letter bombs. But emotionally he is damaged goods--and he was damaged by the very people who were supposed to educate and protect him.

Kazcyski in my view is not evil. He's a damaged man and genius who did a number of specific evil things. The evil fucks for real--that is, people who are evil and not just do sporadic evil things, people who promote evil on purpose as the way they want the world to be--are the ones who damaged him.

I have never looked into it. I recall he got NYT to print the thing, and that it was long. I never read much if any of it.

It sounds like maybe some people got mail bombs from their old lab rat. Completely different story than what we had crammed down our throats,

Jon,

I only know a little myself. I recall seeing some interviews and reading about it at the time.

I brushed up on a few things on Wikipedia: Ted Kaczynski.

According to the article, his purpose in sending the bombs was revenge for encroaching on the wildlife around him.

For the mind control shit, look at this part of the article. See if it doesn't sound like some assholes. (btw - If you have never read up on MKULTRA, man are you in for a treat.)

Quote

As a sophomore [at Harvard], Kaczynski participated in a study described by author Alston Chase as a "purposely brutalizing psychological experiment" led by Harvard psychologist Henry Murray. Subjects were told they would be debating personal philosophy with a fellow student, and were asked to write essays detailing their personal beliefs and aspirations. The essays were turned over to an anonymous attorney, who in a later session would confront and belittle the subject – making "vehement, sweeping, and personally abusive" attacks – using the content of the essays as ammunition, while electrodes monitored the subject's physiological reactions. These encounters were filmed, and subjects' expressions of anger and rage were later played back to them repeatedly. The experiment lasted three years, with someone verbally abusing and humiliating Kaczynski each week. Kaczynski spent 200 hours as part of the study.

Kaczynski's lawyers later attributed his hostility towards mind control techniques to his participation in Murray's study.[24] Some sources have suggested that Murray's experiments were part of Project MKUltra, the Central Intelligence Agency's research into mind control. Chase and others have also suggested that this experience may have motivated Kaczynski's criminal activities, while philosopher Jonathan D. Moreno said that, though "Kaczynski's anti-technological fixation and his critique itself had some roots in the Harvard curriculum," his later bombing campaign can "by no means be laid at Harvard's door".

There seems to be a lot of good stuff on YouTube about him.

Maybe I'll get some time, look at it and post the more interesting things here.

To start, here is a documentary made for The Discovery Channel in 1999 or thereabouts. It is Episode 9 of a series called "The FBI Files." I haven't seen it as of this posting, but I probably will tomorrow. At first blush from looking around at the comments on the Internet about this series, it seems to be good.

I've read up on some MKULTRA. I never thought of that for Kaczynski.

Jason Bourne is more truth than people realize. Some victims remember what they were not supposed to remember and they don't let it go, so to say.

And then they "have to be" eliminated or destroyed with elaborate narratives about what they were and why they acted as they did.

Jon,

I've got the CIA Interrogation (brainwashing and torture :) ) manual from that cache of documents. The CIA had been denying this program ever existed and Richard Helms had the documents (along with a shit load of other documents) destroyed around the time of Watergate. But he missed some. Due to a bureaucratic screw-up, a bunch of MKULTRA documents were filed in the wrong building and discovered later. Now, due to FOIA, they are all over the Internet and the people who like to mock conspiracy theorists avoid this topic altogether. This one doesn't fit their mockery. :) I've even discussed things with people who deny it, even though the government has fully owned up to everything for decades.

Here's the Wikipedia link for the reader: Project MKUltra.

And that's only from what was in the documents that were accidentally stored in the wrong place. Imagine what was in the full set of documents that were destroyed...

Netflix did a miniseries called Wormwood about one guy who jumped out of a window to his death back in the 1950's during the project, but they fucked it up. Oh... the information seems to be OK, but I don't think they could have made it any more boring and artsy-fartsy than they did. I think they reached the limit. :) (It's a shame, too.) I was only able to watch two episodes before going out to find some razor blades to chew on out of frustration. :)  I intend to finish one day, but not today, as I keep telling myself. :) 

btw - I changed my post above yours to include a documentary on the Unabomber.

To those who start to look at MKULTRA and don’t want to keep going, I don’t blame you. It is truly disturbing, saddening stuff. It will drop you, so do not proceed if you already feel down, later instead.

Basically, the human brain is totally hackable. Through very disturbing means, the victim’s mind is split into multiple personalities, which in turn are methodically programmed. The victim’s original personality in most every case is permanently erased, they don’t come back. Victims can be programmed for highly unusual accuities, that is one positive. Photographic memories. No fear, no capacity to feel pain, other exotic abilities. The victim is reduced to literal mind slave existence. They typically have a handler who is an everyday intimate in life and knows the programs and the system management. The victim is undetectable, even to fairly sophisticated diagnostic measures. Adults need a good handler but children can be programmed much more deeply and reliably - they grow to become handlers.

The official story for some time to come will be that all this nasty stuff arose under Hitler, it was all invented then. We had no choice but to see what it was all about - what if others beat us to it and beat us with it!? Emerging Cold War and all that.

That’s nonsense. This nasty shit is a culture, millennia old. It is satanism, and it’s been with us since long before recorded history. It is not gone.

Thank you for your thoughtful essay.  You have grasped Kacynski's situation correctly.   We are all the product of the experiences we have and to some extent the blows which have been inflicted upon us.  Even so,  we broken clocks tell the right time  now and again.
