In Kaczynski's book "Anti-Tech Revolution", he compares this exact predicament to Thomas Jefferson's opinions on the second amendment. Jefferson believed that the public should have the right to arm themselves against tyranny itself, not just criminals or attacking forces of other nations. In this ideology he proposes that the public should be capable of arming themselves to the full extent of their nations own military, meaning whatever technological advances in weaponry adopted down the line should be available to every individual, insuring equal opposition to tyrannical forces. Jefferson states, "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man". In this example, one can compare using technology available to us as taking advantage of the systems internal forces, rather than a hypocritical misjudgment of the organizations character. Having the ability to use the system against itself is much more advantageous than disarming our ability to communicate our ideologies.
