His goal was to be declared sane, so on that point he is satisfied.
Geir Lippestad, defense attorney for Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik • Speaking on his client’s reaction to today’s sentencing, in which he was declared sane and ordered to prison for 10 to 21 years, a case of “preventive detention.” Now, by U.S. standards, that may seem like a light rap for killing 77 people in cold blood, but Norwegian law is a bit different – basically, the stated sentence can be extended indefinitely, so long as the 33-year-old is considered a danger to society. Which means Anders Breivik, who explicitly fought to be recognized as sane, fearful the contrary would represent a denigration of his anti-Muslim nationalism, will likely spend the rest of his years locked away. source (via • follow)

Mr. Breivik managed to commit two terrorist attacks in a single afternoon. But the hatred and contempt from which he drew his deranged determination were shared with many others throughout the international right-wing blogosphere.
Joshua Gaarder, author of “Sophie’s World,” and Thomas Hyland Erickson, professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo • In a New York Times opinion piece emphasizing the right-wing blogosphere’s influential nature — especially in terms of the Norway terror attacks, perpetrated by a man with ties to the right-wing in Norway. Plenty of people on the Internet are bigots in an extreme sense, extreme enough to encourage behavior like Breivik’s. It’s a sad and scary truth, but it’s one that needs to be taken seriously — no man works alone. He may have been a lone wolf in his actions, but he certainly wasn’t alone in his thinking. source (via • follow)
