Uncertainty in Societies

I am reading Ted Kaczynski's new book Anti-Tech Revolution: Why and How. Yes. That Ted Kaczynski.

I noticed in a Facebook post yesterday that few leaders are as powerful as they seem.

This was from an observation in the book. Another observation is that you cannot accurately predict our society while being part of it. This uses a different law, but has kinship with Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. An outside actor can more accurately predict a society's destiny, yet it is impossible because of globalization. So, I have only read the first chapter and preface. I'll share other insights as I get further along.

I am noting that I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I will be posting the total review on Goodreads and Amazon later.
