1995: The Washington Post and The New York Times publish the Unabomber's manifesto, a 35,000 word, 50-plus page, densely written essay calling for a worldwide revolution against the effects of modern society's "industrial-technological system." The Unabomber, later discovered to be former Berkeley mathematics professor Ted Kaczynski, stated that if the document was published, he would cease his bombing campaign that had killed three people and wounded 23 others.
