Quote:"Virtual networks like Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia and the World of Warcraft seem to offer as good clues as any to why this 32 year-old man should decide one day to blow up and shoot as many fellow Norwegians as he could.
Anders Behring Breivik may or may not be found to be clinically insane. But beneath or beside his madness, there's something about Breivik which captures, in extremis, the increasingly delusional, violent and narcissistic nature of our digital culture."
"Then there's Breivik's reliance on the Internet to learn about the world -- a world that he sees in the stark Manichean terms of evil Moslems and communists versus good Norwegian Christians. When asked this week about the greatest influence on his ideology, Breivik's answer was simple. "Wikipedia", he said. That's what most informed his bizarre worldview."
"Some apologists for video games have suggested that Breivik's addiction to World of Warcraft "means nothing at all." But they are wrong."
"Breivik's obsession with violent online games, his narcissism, his reliance on Wikipedia and Facebook are warnings about how digital media can corrupt our grasp of reality."
So, they's gonna be a' calllin' fer even more internet
control and regulations based on a feller that's a
tried and true sociopath.
I ain't never reading nothin' from that house of bullshit
This here opinion piece has to be one of the saddest
excuses I ever read.
He don't support anything he says with fact.
Just because he came up with another dumb idea
don't make it real.
Some fellers ought not to believe everything they think.
