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.

Good find Jed. This is flawed logic at it's finest. I used to play so much donkey kong country if this were true I'd be up in the trees pounding for bananas and throwing barrels at alligators.
The internet didn't create a killer anymore than the Beatles created the Manson family.

That's interesting. As you can imagine all the Scandinavian news are full of this Breivik affair, the trial is streamed live and the coverage is extensive. But the angle CNN presents has not been brought up at all here...

I bet they won't mention how police 'delayed' their response and wouldn't react at all even though A.B. was walking around fully armed in Oslo, caught on CCTV hours before the attack on the island.

There's way more to this than the trial and media wants to paint it...

CNN bitches, pisses and moans about about losing 50% of their viewers. With this kind of FAUX "news" sensationalism no fucking wonder people are turning to more unbiased sources. This is another excuse to restrict the internet and make it as bland, and unappealing as TV and the mainstream music industry.
I believe we can think fine on our own, we no longer require governments and their sanctioned mouthpieces that can't keep their own houses in order to tell us to "do as we say not as we do." coffeetime.gif
Publishing this on CNN was 1-800-DUMB ASS. A really bad call.

Everyone I know that plays WOW are an easy going bunch, the only exception is if they run out of Mountain Dew or Doritos Cool Ranch.
Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia, to say it promotes violence is just stupid. Most people I know had encyclopedias in the house as kids and not once were those books blamed for a killers behavior.
This is really bad journalism, I'm never going to CNN again

WoW is a bad example. I played it for about 6 months and saw just how screwed up gamers can be.



What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Did anyone read the killer's manifesto? I read about a third. I certainly can't deny his thinking with regards to multiculturalism being a by product of counter culture marxist educational methods but just because it can at times be a destabilising factor in socioeconomics it is not a bad thing to want the world to grow and not just a select few anglo saxon warriors who beat their chests and keep their women chained to the kitchen sink.

I actually do not think he is insane. He is well researched and very educated. He just has a particular ideology that is more akin with the Nazi's. As for blaming the internet I published a post the day before about an essay written by Harvard professors attacking internet conspiracy theorists. I can almost hear them say BRING IN THE LAWS. soon the only web site I will have access to is BBC.

I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side. Just one thing I got to know. Who won?

I read some of it and I agree he's not stupid. But as always so much information we don't have. Access denied.

Quote:Remember that the hearings was closed to the public and the media. Classic Scandinavian style - an "open society" right.

The judge ordered that 32-year-old Andres Behring Breivik is to be detained without access to letters or visitors, apart from his lawyer. He’s getting four weeks in isolation. Maybe enought time to carry out more mind control experiments on Breivik.

Apparently the police knew the gunman’s name before the arrest he’s was on a intelligence watch list since March. Someone in Poland was said to be arrested, this is now being denied by Polish authorities.

Questions have been raised about why it took 90 minutes for the police to reach the island Utoya.

Breivik has said he was “surprised” he wasn’t stopped sooner.
