 UCLA Today: Theodore Kaczynski
BY STUART A. Why would someone prefer to die than be diagnosed as mentally ill? This choice, apparently made by Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski in his adamant and dramatic refusal to allow his attorneys to introduce a diagnosis of mental illness in their effort to save him from the death penalty, seems inexplicable.
Kaczynski might rather be dead than diagnosed and sent to a psychiatric institution for the rest of his life.
Whether or not Kaczynski is mentally ill, his apparent choice of death over diagnosis presents a desperate plea to be accepted as a competent human being and a challenge to the conventional uses of psychiatry, which often interposes itself in matters of crime and punishment.
