From the September 2000 Idaho Observer:
Butler decision opens Pandora's box of liability
Will Dees sue Harvard for making the Unabomber?
COEUR D'ALENE -- The September 7, 2000, jury decision to hold Aryan Nations leader Richard Butler 90 percent liable for an assault perpetrated by three of his followers near his Hayden property opens the door for such prestigious institutions as Harvard to be liable for the actions of convicted murderers like Ted Kazynski.
A jury found that Butler was liable for punitive and compensatory damages to the tune of $4.8 million in the July, 1998 assault of Jason and Victoria Keenan outside the Aryan Nations property. Jesse Warfield and John Yeager, two of the three men who actually committed the alleged assault, were found by the jury to be liable for only $500,000 and $100,000 in damages respectively. Both men have already been convicted of the crimes and are serving time in prison for what they insist was a response to what they believed were shots fired on the compound.
The verdict also creates a foundation upon which parents could potentially be held civilly liable for the criminal actions of their adult children.
The Keenans' attorney, the notorious Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), believes that the jury was correct in assigning 90 percent of the liability for the alleged assault because Butler made these men. Dees explained that for far too long the people of north Idaho have had to live with violent racists under the tutledge of Richard Butler.
Dees also commented that, This closes a sad chapter in the history of this nation, and it is time to put an end to this religious cult on Rimrock Road.
The June edition of the esteemed Atlantic Monthly magazine featured an extremely well-researched story entitled, The Making of the Unabomber. In exhaustive detail, we learn that it was Kaczynski's years at Harvard, beginning in 1958 when he was only 16 years old, that molded him into becoming the murderous mad bomber that is currently serving four life sentences.
According to the Atlantic Monthly, The general education curriculum [at Harvard] created a culture of despair. The humanists taught that science threatens civilization. The scientists taught that science cannot be stopped. Taken together, they implied that there was no hope.
The effect of the culture of despair was intensified by Kaczynski's participation in the Murray experiments which used various methods to make subjects express emotions such as anger as overtly as is absolutely possible. The Atlantic Monthly wrote, In the centerpiece of the experiment, the subject was escorted to a 'brilliantly lighted room' and seated in front of a one-way mirror. As the camera rolled, he was subjected to 'vehement, sweeping and personally abusive' attacks.
By the time Kaczynski left Harvard, he was a seething cauldron of hatred and dispair. He left society and went back to nature where he began to formulate his plans to save mankind from technology.
Murray mind control experiments at Harvard and countless other publicly and privately funded psychological research programs that have been conducted in universities all over the nation since WWII have made possibly thousands of unwitting students become violent perpetrators of crime. If Butler is civilly liable for the actions of a few men who commit a simple assault under questionable circumstances, is not Harvard, for example, to be held civilly liable for the murderous rampages of people like Kaczynski?
We urge people to contact Dees at the SPLC and tell him to apply his victory against the Aryan Nations toward bankrupting institutions that use human guinea pigs for psychological experimentation intended to create violent criminals.
