The first attack was a car bomb explosion in Oslo within Regjeringskvartalet, the executive government quarter of Norway, at 15:25:22 (CEST). The bomb was made from a mixture of fertiliser and fuel oil and placed in the back of a van. The van was placed next to the tower block housing the office of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg. The explosion killed eight people and injured at least 209 people, twelve of them seriously.
The second attack occurred less than two hours later at a summer camp on the island of Utøya in Tyrifjorden, Buskerud. The camp was organized by the AUF, the youth division of the ruling Norwegian Labour Party (AP). Breivik, dressed in a homemade police uniform and showing false identification, took a ferry to the island and opened fire at the participants, killing 68 of them outright, and injuring at least 110 people, 55 of them seriously; the 69th victim died in a hospital two days after the massacre. Among the dead were personal friends of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, and the stepbrother of Norway's crown princess Mette-Marit.

Who says serial killers have to be modest poor people? The new "I can get famous AND have the ultimate thrill" trend isn't too much unlike the serial killer trend. It's kind of like a mish mash of the 'arson bug' pathology. Or kleptomaniacs.
But here they've latched on to the "if you want to get peoples attention you've got to hit them with a sledgehammer" logic of "John Doe' in the movie Se7en, which we saw in grand form on 9/11 mind you, with a MSM that will take the entire nation/world for a ride the way they pump it up and make you a celebrity with Hey Hey Hey here's you're big chance to get a total rush stickin it to people you hate while getting 20 minutes of fame maybe even the POTUS will say your name woohoo!!!
Throw in a dash of political ideology AND/OR a nihilist worldview obsessionism, with all of the above, and we're on the right track to explaining the phenomena without any requiring evil puppetmasters variables. So then when we go there well...
Then there is always the Manchurian Candidate concept. The Virginia Tech shooter he was involved in some kind of MKULTRA / DARPA mind sciences experiments. As was the Unabomber. When I saw that movie theater shooter headline that morning as it was happening, I called a friend from outside on my hammock and said 'I wouldn't be surprised if he was involved in some kind of bizarro MKULTRA / DARPA mind sciences experiment'. And I went inside and already just an hour in a quick google search and sure enough he WAS.
You would think that at some point they'd realize they're playing a significant role in making these things happen by sensationalizing them and giving the perpetrators so much focus and attention. I mean the media clearly knows how to influence people so it's hard to believe they wouldn't have a clue what they're doing.

I honestly never made a connection with Stephen Paddock and Anders Brevik, but now that you've pointed it out, just wow. 2 incidents that do seem eerily absent of motive. What was Brevik's motive in the first place?
Very interesting theory... thank you for sharing Rev
Do you think some of the shooters were employed long ago and are sleepers?
