Discovery channel’s new anthology series on Ted Kaczynski premiered on August 1st. He has been called a child prodigy in mathematics and could solve advance Laplace transformations in high school. He was accepted into Harvard at age 16 and then completed his doctorate at University at 25. He became assistant Prof at University of California Berkeley.
“UNABOM” (UNiversity & Airline BOMber) was the title that FBI used. and was the subject of the FBI’s longest and costliest investigation.
He killed and Injured people with gruesome acts of terror. He still has no remorse over his actions.
He himself did not believe he was insane! the court appointed lawyers wanted him to plead insanity
In his 2010 book Technological Slavery, Kaczynski recalls that two prison psychologists, James Watterson and Michael Morrison, who visited him almost every day for a period of four years told him that they saw no indication that he suffered from any such serious mental illness, and that the paranoid schizophrenia diagnosis was “ridiculous” and a “political diagnosis.” Morrison also made remarks to him about psychologists and psychiatrists providing any desired diagnosis if they are well paid for doing so!!
So why did Mr. Kaczynski kill. Not all recluses kill and maim? How come a brilliant self effacing person behave so erratically. The erratic nature, in my opinion, started exhibiting right after he went to Berkeley as an assistant professor. Did he take drugs (60s were know for it, and Berkeley was the mecca of drug culture)?
I can only speculate that the brilliant mind was driven to madness through drugs. Because i have seen people – clear, logical, informative, charming lack emotional empathy. They don’t have empathy of others though brilliant. and i have seen poor people in DC- homeless and penniless smile at me, and help someone else – either a kind word or a small deed.
Butterfly effect – It was made famous in a movie. It is now a cultural trite. But my good friend Liza mentioned this and she had connected the dots that i did not see! Thank you Liza!
Basically it is small prior events of no special consequence during their occurrence but whose effect is significant and causal for a big following event.
Now lets see.
Comey effect is already well know. It is when Former FBI Director James Comey released a letter during the final stages of the election of POTUS.
Nate Silver (I respect him a lot) writes : Hillary Clinton would probably be president if FBI Director James Comey had not sent a letter to Congress on Oct. 28. The letter, which said the FBI had “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation” into the private email server that Clinton used as secretary of state, upended the news cycle and soon halved Clinton’s lead in the polls, imperiling her position in the Electoral College.
Comey provided new details to Congress about how Clinton’s emails ended up on Weiner’s computer as the FBI director strongly defended his decision
to alert Congress just days before the 2016 election about his agency’s investigation into emails potentially related to Clinton’s personal server.”
Weiner get into court and pleads guilty on May 19th
but, the daily Mail of UK publishes the story of Weiner on September 21st 2017, just weeks before the election
Weiner is under Federal Investigation
Oct. 28, 2016 : Comey announced that new emails had been discovered on the laptop of former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and that messages may be related to the Clinton probe. His announcement came 11 days before Election Day.
How did Weiner get caught? Who informed the daily Mail in September? When FBI launched investigation into Weiner, they had surreptitiously discover the emails!! Who was the 15 year old? How did this happen for months when he was texting to her? Was she planted by someone who knew Weiner had classified information from Hillary Clinton?
Then after all said and done. Comey had to say something!! That was new evidence right before elections!
Now we have the link – 15 year old that led to downfall of Hillary Clinton’s POTUS run!
and i thought i never believed in conspiracies!!
