One step behind…

The Breivik-trial part I

November 14th, 2011 by admin

Today was the first day journalists were allowed to refer from the Oslobomb-trial, Utoya-trial, 22july-trial, or Breivik-trial. Call it whatever you want.

For the first time, the public was allowed to get glimpse of Ander Behring Breivik`s twisted mind. (Drawing: Esther Maria Bjørneboe / NRK)

Focusing on the details, what Anders failed to realize prior to his “mission” to “save Norway”, is that first of all.. Norway did not want to be saved (reference click), second – that the sort of radical Islamisation he fear, only has happened in regions torn apart by war and conflict.

One example of this is Afghanistan, a country which was not radicalized until the late 80s, after being used as a battlefield for the USA and the USSR for a decade.

When people is exposed to such violence for extended period of time, even a Sharia-state seems like blessing, as a promises of peace and predictability. Most people prefer that over terror.

It’s also worth to noticing that Anders`s initial statement, that he is “the leader of the anticommunist movement” is glorifying none other than the highly dysfunctional and most recently massively opposed 1%`s.

Now only time will tell if it possible to deconstruct a flawfull system peacefully (as Anders in his manifesto claim is not possible). I on the other hand, I am quite sure it is possible.

Only time will tell.
