Rejected Texts

Masculinity & Technology

Argument: We've archived two texts by the author and are open to archiving others, but with regards to short anti-tech essays like this we'd prefer to collect them into a single research text from both the pro and anti-tech side, on whether technology necessarily dulls masculine and/or feminine desires.

Some anti-tech essays appear to revel in men's aggression and natural physical dominance over their prey, which is an attitude we think worthy of critique. Though as anarchists we do want people to have access to the opportunity to risk their lives with dangerous adventurism without a nanny state saying no. There's obviously lots of places the discussion can go and interesting reading material to discuss.

Counter-argument: Similar stand alone anti-tech essay exist on the website.

Censored Texts

Doxes of the eco-extremist writer/translator/publisher Abe Cabrera and his vivisectionist wife

Argument for censoring: The reason the person was doxed and their critique of the person is still fully intelligible despite censoring the information. And there's some neglible chance that we'd be causing greater net suffering to innocent or reformed people years later.

Counter argument: The evidence this was Abe in the first place, then the shutting down of Atassa and the way everyone reacted on release of the dox confirms it, so he and his vivisectionist wife should have a spotlight put on their lives even just as a journalistic human interest story.

Controversially Accepted Texts

Disrupting The Purist Anarchist Pipeline

Argument for deleting: The piece argues that insurrectionary thought is a 'pipeline' to eco-extremism, which isn't true.

Counter argument: The text doesn't say anything like that:

I really value debate between various specialized political philosophies and strategies, and I have nothing against for example, green anarchism as the promotion of a style of critique not often seen, like black-anarchism and anarcha-feminism. These can help identify you as someone who has had the time to research the ways in which expertise in building democratic institutions, green architecture and rewilding will help get us to a better world.

In using the term pipeline I’m not making an absolutist factual claim, that if a person reads x thing, they are on their way to becoming y thing, always and definitively. I am saying there is a clearly observable psychological crossover among some people from these niche ideologies who move down them in a pursuit of viewing the world in more fundamentalist ways, and who also attempt to move others along in the same direction as them, and finally that it’s more common the further down you go.

Obviously, someone can travel all the way down to the level of a Satanist death cultist and only have been able to encourage one of their former friends to move down one level, thus spitting them out at only one level lower, but it’s still a concerning phenomenon, both for the few who end up at the very low levels, as well as the many who just take on a more purist gatekeeping form of anarchism.

Criminal Justice Reading List

Argument for deleting: The piece celebrates what they call 'good prisons' like in Norway (their words).

Counter argument: No, not black and white good, good-ish character virtues on the part of liberal reformist legislators who push for these policies in authoritarian countries as one short-term tactic among many:

'The Good, the bad and the gray' are rough approximations of the character virtue intentions of the individuals & groups listed, and/or the net positive outcomes we think they may have achieved in giving people the courage to break free from their social conditioning. That isn't to say we think every action taken by every group or individual listed in the good or gray categories were ethical.

The Ultimate Ted Kaczynski Research Document

Argument for deleting: All texts should be free, not hidden behind a patreon account, otherwise you don't really care about achieving an anarchist world.

Counter argument: One paywalled text on the website does not a not an anarchist make. The author says the book took over a year to produce and simply isn't comfortable with the text receiving a wider audience until it's fully finished. But, they'd like to find collaborators and are offering help:

At some point I would like to condense this book down into one normal length book, cutting chapters and putting quoted sources into my own words. If you’d like to help as a co-author or would like my help with your own ideas for what to do with the material, just let me know.

I’ve also quoted a ton of people in this book, so the offer is open to anyone I’ve quoted to let me know if you might like your quote updated with a new statement.

About this project

Argument for deleting: 'Deprogramming' people sounds manipulative.

Counter argument: The word deprogramming was used simply to refer to the emotional growth Ted K's fascist fans could chose to go through for example by reading texts that critique their past literal glorification of the Khmer Rouge's genocide.

Suggested Reading critiquing Ted

Arguments for deleting: Ted is an anarchist POW [prisoner of war], so he deserves not to be shit all over.

Counter argument: Even if I were to grant he's an anarchist POW, it wouldn't make the 'war' he fought any more justifiable, it would just mean some anarchist POWs deserve to be shit all over. Ted is an asshole who planted a bomb on a public airliner, took a knife to meet a romantic interest who turned him down, with the plan to disfigure her face for it, and slowly tortured animals to death for eating food in his cabin.

But, regardless of whether he deserves that treatment, I don't think that's an accurate description of the purpose of the website creation, nor all the utility this website has for various people.

Finally, it's doubtful whether Ted was ever an anarchist and he later rejected any identification as an anarchist:[1]

In 1995 I described FC as “anarchist” because I thought it would be advantageous to have some recognized political identity. At that time I knew very little about anarchism. Since then I've learned that anarchists, at least those of the U.S. and the U.K., are nothing but a lot of hopelessly ineffectual bunglers and dreamers, useless for any purpose. Needless to say, I now disavow any identification as an anarchist.

Texts by Daniel McGowen

Argument for deleting: Daniel is an ex anarchist POW, so he might deserve special treatment in being asked whether he wants his texts published.

Counter argument: There are countless witness testimonies of the time and place Daniel was radicalized also being a hotbed of interest in the Unabomber manifesto. So when using the website to learn about these events, it's useful to have writing by the ELF members themselves to look through in the same topic. He acknowledges himself he made some dumb decisions like burning down a tree farm due to thinking they were genetically modified trees when they weren't, and so hopes others can learn not to make the kind of mistakes he made, this website can attempt to in part serve that purpose.

Censored doxes of the eco-extremist writer/translator/publisher Abe Cabrera and his vivisectionist wife

Argument for deleting: No good is being achieved. And even if the husband did commit an unethical act, the wife can't be guilty of the crimes her husband committed.

Counter argument: Identifying names and locations are blacked out or replaced with the word '[censored]'. The likely net good is being able to understand the history of a group who started out slavishly walking in Ted's ideological footsteps and how they became way, way more misanthropic and hopeless than him, plus their supporters and promoters.

Also of interest is how everyone that was part of the Atassa project reacted to the doxxing and the character description of Abe in Children of Ted:

A text dump on eco-extremism

Argument for deleting: The text includes the end stage ITS messages which are so vile and misanthropic that even the anarchist library would never upload them.

Counter argument: The text includes a massively long introductory critique and the latter stuff shows them consistently failing and withering into irrelevancy. Again, the likely net good is being able to understand the history of a group who started out slavishly walking in Ted's ideological footsteps and how they became way, way more misanthropic and hopeless than him, plus their supporters and promoters.

A text dump on bronze age pervert

Argument for deleting: Fascist shit has nothing to do with Ted K.

Counter argument: We think Ted K is a reactionairy, who cycled through a bunch of reactionary dispositions, starting with fascism and ending on a kind of anti-tech vanguardism. He advocated an organizational strategy similar to Maoism and suggested seeing if alliances could be made with jihadists like Bin Laden.

So, we value text dumps on similar people to understand the connections, like why the bronze age pervert dude called up Anarchy Radio recently. Eco-extremists don't like those connections being made because many of them like Ted and would like to see way more eco-extremist texts on websites like The Ted K Archive and The Anarchist Library.

Rather than moaning about why The Ted K Archive hasn't been deplatformed, they could easily simply create rival projects for what they would like to see in the world. They could even buy domain and mirror every anti-civ text on this website and delete the rest. All the software is open source and pages open to mirroring and downloading, so they could do it within a few hours work if they have anyone who ever sat through computer programming lesson in school. None of us had to suffer through that thank Zeus, but we're grateful to the people who did, who decided to host thetedkarchive, and who don't feel they need to agree 1000% on every editorial decision.

Deleted Texts

Various fascist texts as primary source reading to understand the threat

An email was sent to our previous server owner arguing that the whole site should be taken down. The server owner dismissed many of their arguments, but they agreed on one point, which was that they disagreed with archiving a few fascist texts as primary source reading to understand the threat, so the texts were swiftly taken down by us.

The texts had included short disclaimers and were listed in the table of contents under a large section on anti-fascism. The thinking was that they would help with understanding why:

  • Some anarchists had become Ted K fans and then fascists.

  • Ted has acquired a fairly large fascist following.

In tandem with the above, one aim was also to attempt to archive lots of Ted's reading interests and influences. Ted had a 1008 page book of Hitler's speeches in his cabin. We couldn't find the exact one he had, but we found and archived an even longer volume set, with more critical analysis included:[2]

Series I, #3, pp. 253-254. The name “Nicomus Bagley” is fictitious. The quotation actually is from a book of Adolf Hitler’s speeches titled “My New Order.” I was a little embarrassed to put a quotation of Hitler in my notebook.

Garden Issues #1-4

The domain provider complained about a 'kaczynskist' zine that was archived on the website called 'Garden' that we had up in a partially redacted form:

The hosting of an abusive content (Illegal) on your dedicated server

We genuinely thought there wouldn't be a problem if one part was redacted, the author said that police visited them over why they had gathered the redacted info, but that it wasn't illegal and they weren't arrested, so we just thought it was a situation of police overreach like potentially also with The FBI Investigation of Forest Anon.

The zine was up on amazon at one point, is still up on and other issues still up on the anarchist library and

In hindsight maybe it was reckless and we should have just had the other issues up which weren't as risky.
