Theodore ‘Ted’ Kaczynski, known as the “Unabomber”, has passed away at the age of 81. Kaczynski was responsible for a 17-year bombing campaign that killed three people and injured 23 others. He was found unresponsive in his cell at a federal prison in North Carolina, where he had been held since 1998, serving four life sentences plus 30 years. Kaczynski targeted academics, scientists and computer store owners and even attempted to blow up a commercial airliner in a campaign against modern technology, which he believed was leading to a sense of powerlessness and alienation. He forced the publication of his manifesto, Industrial Society and Its Future, which led to his arrest. Kaczynski’s bombings changed the way Americans sent packages and boarded airplanes, almost shutting down West Coast air travel in 1995. Despite being compared to romantic anti-heroes, Kaczynski was ultimately seen as a pathetic loner.
