The Relevance Of The Unabomber’s Manifesto Today

After binge-watching the hit series on Netflix ‘Manhunt: The Unabomber’ early this year, I became extremely intrigued into the mind of Theodore Kaczynski and the psychology embedded in his somewhat futuristic ideology. Theodore Kaczynski is a US serial killer, who killed three people over the course of a 17-year bombing campaign against technology, and remained unidentified from the FBI until his brother identified him from his 35,000-word manifesto.

Why Do We Ignore Toxic Sibling Relationships?

When it comes to handling difficult family dynamics, I have read many articles ranging from ‘signs you have a toxic sibling’ to ’10 ways to deal with a toxic sibling’.

My Male Friends Only Want To Talk Feminism When It’s About Hitting A Woman Back

Why is it that my male friends only care about feminism and equality when it’s about hitting a woman?
