Why did the Unabomber do

Why did the Unabomber do it? This guy says because he was systematically humiliated at Harvard [nyt]. The argument seems overly intellectualized to me, although it could be part of a wider explanation. Ted's mom once said he was never the same after he got sick as a toddler and went to the hospital for a while. That to me seems like the beginning of his emotional detachment -- the stuff at Harvard must have cemented some of that.
