    “He Might Not Be Wrong”: Elon Musk Shows Solidarity With Unabomber’s Anti-Technology Manifesto

    Driverless cars, rockets ships set for Mars exploration, brain implants-you dream it, Elon Musk has built it. He dreams of a tech-savvy tomorrow and is halfway there with prototypes and products no one would have imagined. This man makes complex machines, so why does he agree with the man who thinks technology is a curse? 

    Ashley St. Clair tweeted about the recent passing of Theodore John Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber. Aside from making bombs that blew people up, he constantly talked about the harmful effects of technology. Elon Musk pointed out that there’s a certain degree of truth in Unanbomber’s beliefs which mirror his concerns about the A.I.

    Ashley St. Clair, a conservative commentator, took to her socials to post about Theodore John Kaczynski‘s death at 81. She prefaced the article with a quote from the Unabomber himself about the advent of machines being a curse for humanity. Her tweet read, ” The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race. Theodore John Kaczynski Dead at 81.” 

    Elon Musk, one of the most followed accounts on Twitter, knows just how to bring together a crowd. The former Twitter CEO responded to the tweet in the affirmative. Himself, an advocate of ethics in A.I., he acknowledged the foresight of Theodor with the tweet, “He might not be wrong.”

    Elon Musk is afraid of A.I.’s true potential

    With ChatGPT taking over our lives, Musk’s prophecies are coming true. It will soon replace people with systems that facilitate continuous information. To combat the infectious spread of A.I., he’s working on a technology with his startup X.AI. Elon Musk, for all his political misgivings, might even make moral artificial intelligence a reality. 

    Many in the tech industry, including Musk, have penned an open letter describing how artificial intelligence can corrupt our civilization. Unsurprisingly, the Tesla boss can find something to agree with Unanbomber’s manifesto. Worrying about how it would lead to the moral decay of society, Theodore was against the age of industrialization. With how accessible everything’s become, maybe it’s time to set up limitations for what technology should and shouldn’t do.
