Uncle Ted's Library

He supposedly kept hundreds of books with him in his hermit cabin. Does anyone know what he kept there in literary terms?

He was a supergenius, so I'd expect he had lots of interesting material...

    A lot of male geniuses tend to have extremely adolescent tastes in literature... But it was probably all science/philosophy, and just maybe a copy of LOTR.

    The two books which influenced him the most were The Technological Society and the True Believer.
    He cites lots of books in the printed editions of his works, mostly history and politics. Some Spanish and German stuff. Not a ton of literature but I'd assume the citations don't reflect all he read.

            Name one other author that has argued for a revolution against the technological system, or one that has put forth anything similar to what Kaczynski has outlined in Anti-Tech Revolution: Why and How regarding self-propagating systems. Saying Kaczynski wasn't original is bullshit, and even then he's stated that the point of the manifesto never was to be original but to make anti-tech ideas understandable to a wide audience

            Why are pseuds so concerned over whether something is "original" or not as if that's the only basis that should be used to evaluate its merit?
            Literally every thinker borrows ideas from other people, and Ted's goal was never to come up with some masterwork of anti-tech philosophy, just to get the main points clearly across and inspire a movement.

        Lol. He mooched off of his parents to get money, still went to the town doctor when he got injured, only lived 5 kilometers from the town.
        His targets (aside from the CEO’s) were literal who’a, and the computer store owner was a former student who he probably wanted an excuse to kill. Not to mention it’s not that impressive that you can get away with bombings in high-trust towns and schools, he seemed to really Pat himself on the back for not getting caught.

        I don't really get why he bombed people. Could just lived out his days in a forest.

        Because he was a Sperg who lived only 5 kilometers from a town, and then acts surprised when the town naturally expands. He also said in one of the interviews that he didn’t do it for any altruistic reason l, he just wanted revenge.

            how did he effectively oppose corporations? If all it amounted to was him getting arrested for blowing up a few nobodies then he did nothing and was nothing. Speaking of which that sounds exactly like the /misc/tards who worship him.

            They talk 24/7 about revolution and killing capitalists but when someone actually started doing it they disown him.
            Reminds me of Jan 6, a bunch of working class (at most some of them were upper middle class) Trump voters cause hyper-corrupt politicians to freak out and leftists instantly disown it and say the FBI should hunt them all down.
            They just want to stay in their comfy Marx reading groups talking about whether Marx would support [current thing] and reading about historical revolutions forever, never actually challenge the system.

    Hate to break it to everyone but very few thinkers are actually original. Marx copied 99% of his ideas from British economists, Hegel and French socialists. People still read him because he synthesized their ideas well and was a good writer, but to say he was original is a lie.
    Aquinas was just the Church Fathers and Aristotle.
    etc, etc.
