I was given an assignment to choose and read an article in my english class and I am really getting into it. The article is called The Unabomber was Right, the author is  Kevin Kelly and he is doing an extraordinary job at keeping me on the edge of my seat and engaged in his writing. I was reading the article and then all of the sudden a question popped into my head, “Who even is the Unabomber and what was his motive?”. I immediately fell down a rabbit hole of intriguing and relevant information on that matter. My mind was running wild and until I came across something that I had not even taken into account. When I turned back to the article and I reread the title a cold shiver when down my back. My head could not stop saying over and over again, “The Unabomber was right”. I was in awe and frankly felt offended that the author had the audacity to even think that let alone write that as his title. I then angrily turned to the internet for answers and then after coming back unsatisfied and reading more of the article I understood why. I then still could not get away from the internet and I kept googling and googling questions. I then turned to Wikipedia to find out how Ted Kaczynski (The Unabomber) hid and remained hidden so long from police,“ In 1971 Kaczynski moved to a remote cabin without electricity or running water near Lincoln, Montana, where he lived as a recluse while learning survival skills in an attempt to become self-sufficient.“ Then I came to think how intelligent this man was and how he could have torn Americas society into fear if he had not gotten in his own way.

  1. Better check the name of the writer who authored the piece you’re working on.

    Reading this, I’m not getting very much of a sense of what you may have learned about Kacynski beyond the very basics of his bio.

    1. Yes, for some reason my ADHD kicked in and I was so focused on the reading that when I checked to see who the author was for some reason I thought it was chandler.
