There is very little to be gained from a study of Anders Behring Breivik. He was a loner who was alienated from the society he lived in, suffered from depression, played violent video games, used steroids, listened to angry music and was of above average intelligence. This profile describes half the spree shooters in the last two decades, right down to the Columbine Massacre.
It is not Breiviks politics that make him significant. He was an outsider who despised society and escaped into romantic fantasies of omnipotence fed by video games and popular culture. Breivik cultivated a detached attitude toward the people around him and was obsessed with violent exercises of his masculinity. All this is common to killers of all political stripes and of no political affiliation whatsoever.
His journal reveals a man who vacillated between crippling depression and grandiose plans. This manic-depressive behavior suggests Breivik may be bipolar. It is unknown if he was taking medication for it. He may have been self-medicating instead and rather than controlling his mood swings, it worsened them. Breiviks journal shows some awareness of his emotional instability, but his later entries are too caught up in his grandiose fantasy world to seek psychiatric help.
Had Breivik not imagined himself a crusader, then he would have become an animal rights activist, an anti-capitalist terrorist, or just a random spree killeracting out scenarios from Modern Warfare 2, his favorite video game, in real life. There is no use in trying to apply some measure of consistency to his beliefs. And his choice of targets likely had a large element of personal grievance or resentment to it that he then dressed up in manifesto form.

There’s much to learn, or rather to review and *implement*
from the Utoya massacre, as there was from Mumbai 2008,
Virginia Tech 2007 and too many other atrocities before and
after. 1. Dial 911 and Die. I’m sure most here know the
“The explosive rage on both sides fueled by a social instability created by aggressive immigration with no thought to its impact on the country as a whole. It was Brevik who spent nine years planning and carrying out the attacks, but it was the political authorities who had created a scenario that made it possible.”
Ahhh, this writer gets it. The rut cause (as Dr. Jocelyn Elders would say) of the shooting are the victims...the politicians. Risky thing to say...
Isn’t it interesting how incidents like this almost always seem to occur just when the left needs them?
No decent path between the hyperviolence of the action hero and the submission of the citizen of the postmodern state.
Pretty telling in the comment above. Modern life does seem to promote submissive apathy.
