‎‘Technological Slavery’ on the bleak future of technologized world published
Theodore John Kaczynski who is serving life sentence due to his terrorist activities published ‘Technological Slavery’ in 2019 with an introduction by David Skrbina, a philosophy professor at the University of Michigan, Dearborn. The book has been translated into Persian by Shahoo Saleh and released by Rozaneh Publishing in 372 pages.
"Logical, lucid, and direct, Technological Slavery is more than an expansion on the ideas set forth by Theodore Kaczynski in Industrial Society and Its Future (a.k.a. the 'Manifesto'). It radically reinvigorates and reforms the intellectual foundations of an age-old and resurgent world-view: 'Progress' is a myth.
Wild nature and humanity (including human freedom, dignity, and autonomy) are fundamentally incompatible with technological growth. In Technological Slavery, Kaczynski argues that:
1)  The unfolding human and environmental crises are the direct, inevitable result of technology itself;
2) Many of the stresses endured in contemporary life are not normal to the human condition, but unique to technological conditions;
3) Wilderness and human life close to nature are realistic and supreme ideals;
4) A revolution to eliminate modern technology and attain these ideals is necessary and far more achievable than would first appear.
Drawing on psychology, economics, history, anthropology, political science, and biology, Kaczynski weaves together a set of visionary social theories to form a revolutionary perspective on the dynamics of history and the evolution of societies.
The result is a comprehensive challenge to the fundamental values and assumptions of the modern technology-driven world, pinning the cause of the rapidly unfolding catastrophe on technology itself, while offering a realistic hope for ultimate recovery"--
Theodore John Kaczynski, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Ted Kaczynski) was born in 1942 in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Harvard at age sixteen, earned his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Michigan and became assistant professor of mathematics at UC-Berkeley at the age of twenty-five.
After two years, Kaczynski resigned his professorship and moved to a remote wilderness area of western Montana to pursue a life-long ambition of living an autonomous and self-sufficient life from the land, which he did for twenty-five years.
Kaczynski has been incarcerated since 1998 in rigorous confinement at Federal Prison ADX in Florence, Colorado, after receiving a life sentence for the long-term violent campaign he undertook to call world-wide attention to the colossal dangers inherent in technological growth.
