Breivik and the blame game

This post is intentionally short as I believe it is morally deleterious to engage in immoderate debate over the actions of Anders Behring Breivik.

Breivik, currently on trial for murdering 77 people during a three hour killing spree in Norway, has our attention and he is revelling in it. His various claims, especially the assertion that he had been trying to “save Norway and western Europe from cultural Marxism and a Muslim takeover”, have exercised the minds of commentators all over the globe.

We should guard against dignifying Breivik’s rants with any response that threatens to deviate one iota away from condemnation. It might be fascinating to construct a narrative, but it should not be allowed to blur his acts of terror.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
