More Re-Writes {Updated}

Ted Kaczynski AKA Unabomber

February 2009:

He also participated in a multiple-year personality study conducted by Dr. Henry Murray, an expert on stress interviews.

Now:

He had a few brief contacts with mental health systems and only underwent psychological testing as part of a routine study of young men while attending Harvard.

Who wrote the latter, a chimpanzee?

CourtTV is now TruTV. How truthy. From now on, the Department of Justice must be known as the Department of Cosmetic Arrests, the Department of Defense as the Terrorist Factory, CIA simply as LSD.

JFK was right. Smash it in a thousand pieces.

21 April 2014 update:

The February 2009 link is now broken. The phrase I copied and pasted in 2011 apparently no longer exists. Instead, we have the very creepy and you-bet-your-ass-aimed-at-me-and-other-COINTELPRO-victims this:

Pysychological Evaluation of Theodore Kaczynski

Dr. Sally C. Johnson’s psychological report describes Theodore Kaczynski, the confessed Unabomber, as a man whose early brilliance was ruined by paranoid schizophrenia.

Johnson made her evaluation after interviewing Kaczynski, his family and people who knew him, analyzing psychological tests, and studing of the Unabomber’s journals which document over 40 years of his life.

She cites “an almost total absence of interpersonal relationships,” and “delusional thinking involving being controlled by modern technology” as examples of his illness.

Kaczynski increasingly withdrew from society as he grew older, and his journals reflect a feeling of social alienation, suspicion and anger he found hard to express. The report says one of his motives for writing the journals was that he intended to kill people and did not want society to think he was mentally ill.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled that the psychiatric report should be made public in order to provide a better understanding of the Unabomber’s motivations.

Note the date. This is the Archive.org’s January 2008 version:

For the first time in a while, I think I’m actually winning.
