Would reading Marx have saved him? Excluding how much he likes shitting on "leftists" in the first few sections, ISAIF gives off very similarly strong themes to Marx about one's alienation from their labour and how class society subjugates the individual and treats them as a cog in the societal machine rather than a human being.
ISAIF: >Industrial Society and Its Future lays very detailed blame on technology for destroying human-scale communities. Kaczynski contends that the Industrial Revolution harmed the human race by developing into a sociopolitical order that subjugates human needs beneath its own. This system, he wrote, destroys nature and suppresses individual freedom. In short, humans adapt to machines rather than vice versa, resulting in a society hostile to human potential. Karl Marx: >Let us suppose that we had carried out production as human beings. Each of us would have, in two ways, affirmed himself, and the other person. (i) In my production I would have objectified my individuality, its specific character, and, therefore, enjoyed not only an individual manifestation of my life during the activity, but also, when looking at the object, I would have the individual pleasure of knowing my personality to be objective, visible to the senses, and, hence, a power beyond all doubt. (ii) In your enjoyment, or use, of my product I would have the direct enjoyment both of being conscious of having satisfied a human need by my work, that is, of having objectified man's essential nature, and of having thus created an object corresponding to the need of another man's essential nature … Our products would be so many mirrors in which we saw reflected our essential nature. 6 posts and 1 image reply omitted.

Uncle Ted is a cuck precisely because he refused to read Marx. Drugs and experiments aside he was a university man and would've been able to easily find/read Marx, but like much of western pseudo-intellectualism it's considered acceptable to not read something that hurts your pwecious fee-fees and challenge basic assumptions

Teddy was so stupid he thought liberals were marxists trying to implement communism. If he was 20 years younger, he would have been enamored with tucker carlson, donald trump and /pol/.

What do you mean by "save"? He was a pretty big insurrectionist
