"He was very svelte, no body fat. Dirty. He’d been in the cabin a long time," said Gray. "His hair was covered in soot and matted. His pants were shriveled and looked like a pirate. He had poor hygiene and glaring eyes. He would look through you as if he were better than you."
Kaczynski wouldn’t answer questions. Instead, the former math professor became angry about the search warrant.

A mathematics prodigy, Ted Kaczynski taught at the University of California before retreating to a survivalist lifestyle in the Montana woods. Between 1975 and 1995, Kaczynski mailed bombs to universities and airlines, killing three people and injuring 23 more. FBI agents arrested Kaczynski in 1996.
I think what has to be done is not to try and convince or persuade the majority of people that we are right, as much as try to increase tensions in society to the point where things start to break down.
