Breivik's hideous deeds prompted a moment of introspection in Norway — whose government has played such a prominent role in trying to author peace in other parts of the world — regarding the rise of far-right extremism there and elsewhere in Europe.
Of the Breivik has been read from their defenders, it is partly factual and ideological issues he believes are wrong reproduced, misquoted and taken out of context in the report.
Personally, Breivik invoked a psychology degree without having studied it through formal channels. He believes that his job as a salesperson is the best way to study psychology at.
A Swedish academic has come under fire in Norway after writing an article suggesting that Israel played a part in the July 22nd massacre carried out by Anders Behring Breivik that claimed 77 lives.
"It's part of a wider discourse. Far-right movements are obsessed with narratives that put emphasis on apocalyptic scenario, in which they portray themselves as heroes."
Take the case of the terrorist Anders Breivik,who massacred 68 innocent people in Norway this year. Had he been of Afghan descent,or from another country outside the charmed civilisational circle of the “West”,he would - correctly - have been classified as a mass murderer. However,because he is Norwegian,Breivik cannot by definition be anything other than “civilized”.After all, Norway is a country that eases its conscience at making money from polluting the world through petroproducts by spending millions of euros “civilizing” barbarians in Asia and Africa. So it is hardly a surprise that Breivik has been found to be not a criminal but insane.
If anyone should carry out a terrorist act against the government, because they are dissatisfied with the way they manage to, it is understandable that the Bombardier a government building, he says in a documentary made by the Swedish state channel SVT.
"On the island Utøya Breivik someone said:" You can not murder me,. It was a you, a face, eyes. He survived. That has to do with language, how society is structured linguistically and what it means to stand outside society. Breivik stood out and was not checked and corrected.
He has spent the most time to read the report. He says he is looking forward to Christmas so that peace can settle and he can spend even more time reading up on it, says Green. Breivik disagree with the conclusion and argues the report is full of lies and untruths. - He believes the experts have turned and twisted what he said to them, says Green. Pending the Commission although Breivik disagree with the conclusion he has not yet decided whether he will require new experts.
It comes when we shall obtain the witnesses, what strategy we should follow and what areas we should focus on. We know that our choices will affect the people involved. We must constantly weigh the considerations against each other, weigh how important something is to the case against how harmful it can be for the person concerned. If I do not consider it, but just running in to get the most out of the light, we can carry completely wrong place. We need to make assessments that are legal, but they must also be moral, says Lippe City.
When I educate female colleagues, I urge them not to participate in online debates, says Huitfeldt.
In particular, women are subjected to unfair coverage of the debates, said the Minister.
- It's going to be terrible. The accused will give very detailed descriptions of their misdeeds. In the courtroom, it appears movies and pictures from Utøya. Indescribable bad it is. I want to warn people, especially young people, not to attend the trial, said Lippe City.
- Extreme cruelty
Breivik also in police interrogations described in frightening detail about the bomb explosion in Oslo and the mass killings of Utøya. Although the right-appointed experts have declared Breivik to be a paranoid schizophrenic, the accused have ample opportunity to give testimony in court, along with other defendants.
Paul Ray is now asking the police to investigate the meeting in 2009, and find out the identity of the second-blogger Lionheart. Ray says he does not know the name of the person, but he knows with certainty that they exist. Paul Ray estimates the man to be late 30's.
The approach of identifying possible lone wolves and then persuading them that they are part of a plot might be having the effect of turning armchair observers into active radicals. Who is to say they would have progressed to the point of actually carrying out an attack if they had not had the support of the network of undercover law enforcement operatives around them?
Until this ideology fades, we will continue to see the emergence of more lone jihadists.
- I have failed as a father
Breivik doing yard work 22 July. When he learned about the bomb, and the day after, his son's face in the news, he could not believe his eyes. The period after the terrorist attacks 22 July has been heavy, he admits. He has previously described his son as "a quiet and kind of weird kid."
Must live with shame
Aftenbladet reporter asks Breivik if he can forgive his son.
- No. It is impossible. He is the worst terrorist since the Second World War.
The two prosecutors will present evidence investigators have against Breivik. It means they have a desire to read up on other fields. Breivik uses both in his manifesto, in interviews with police and in conversations with the experts of several political and historical ideas concepts, but also concepts taken from the game world and the internet.
Breivik picks much of their image of reality from games like "World of Warcraft (WoW)" and "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2".
- This is preferably the two games he has spent a lot of time, said prosecutor Christian Hatlo to Dagbladet.
For the two prosecutors, this is a world they have little knowledge.
- We have not just spent our time in front of a gaming machine. There are clearly some things we need to get a better grip on before trial, says Holden.
Clumsy and careful
Teenager Breivik describes him as a bit cautious and clumsy.
- If he ever wakes up and finds out what he has done, I think he's going to be absolutely terrible. If he kills himself it would not surprise me, he says.
The forensic commission is not yet finished its review of the report. But according to the channel, there is great disagreement about the conclusion paranoid schizophrenia.
More is also critical that the terrorists political opinions have not been addressed in the report.
The court has also sent a copy of the document they have received. It contains a single sentence:
"There are no significant objections to the declaration."
- We have no expertise in this, and must trust that those who have it do its job. It's difficult for many, but we must still deal with the experts, said Deputy Chairman of the national support group, Tove Selbekk, told VG Nett.
Some people say that Breivik is just mentally ill. Well, probably he is, but this doesn’t annul the fact that crimes like his one are caused by problems which really exist and are really serious. Relations between indigenous Europeans and people who come to Europe from Moslem countries are not always smooth – and it would be wrong to say that only one side, be it the Europeans or the newcomers, is to blame for that. The integration of people of one culture into a country where another culture dominates is not an easy process. Conflicts are sometimes so tense that now, more and more European politicians are starting to doubt whether the policy of multiculturalism is a good one.”
And, if he is imprisoned, nationalistically-minded people in Europe may look upon him as a martyr. Unfortunately, the current situation in Europe gives grounds to worry that new “fighters against the onslaught of Moslems” like him may appear.
Earlier this year Lacoste asked that Anders Breivik, who murdered 77 people in Norway in July, be stopped from wearing shirts bearing the Lacoste logo after he was photographed in a police van in a top with the brand's distinctive crocodile logo.
Empathy divides into at least two components: "cognitive" and "affective". Cognitive empathy is the drive to identify someone else's thoughts and feelings, being able to put yourself into their shoes to imagine what is in their mind. Affective empathy, in contrast, is the drive to respond to someone else's thoughts and feelings with an appropriate emotion. People with autism typically have difficulties with the cognitive component (they have trouble inferring what other people might think or feel), but have intact affective empathy (it upsets them to hear of others suffering). So Breivik is unlikely to have autism.
In contrast, those with antisocial personality disorder (including psychopaths) typically have the opposite profile: they have no trouble reading other people's thoughts and feelings (intact cognitive empathy) but other people's suffering is of no concern to them.
It is not for me to speculate on Breivik's diagnosis, and in some ways the precise formulation is of secondary importance. The more important issue is to understand what factors can lead to empathy erosion.
Breivik wishes to be considered by someone who specializes in politically motivated violence, a historian and political scientist. These specialists will be called as witnesses during the trial, said Lippestad.
So Broadcasting Corporation documentary on cell defenders also says that Anders Behring Breivik have seen yesterday documentary on NRK where his father and stepfather talking about his childhood. - He thought it was an interesting program to watch and he thought it was special to see his father and stepfather. He also expressed that he thought they spoke of him in a better way than he had expected, says Lippestad.
During questioning the mother to Anders Behring Breivik have explained that his son underwent a major personality change from the time he moved back to his bedroom in 2006.
The police were at the start of the terrorism investigation very interested in the role of "Fjordman" had played in relation to the mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik (32). blogger is heavily cited in the manifesto of the terrorist, and it was in the media first speculated that it was "Fjordman" who was behind the terrorist act. "Fjordman" ANSWERS: - I have played with open cards are now clearly refuted, but in conversations with the police "
Relocation Plans "Fjordman" continues to say that he was planning to move from London to somewhere else in Norway before Breivik case - which probably would have happened sometime during the next year. - The main reason for this was that I wanted to be closer to relatives and family, but also because Oslo is becoming a very unsafe and unfriendly city that slowly destroyed by immigration. Parts of the capital is not Norway. Like many other native Norwegians, I can not see any future in the family and have children to school in Oslo, where they will be harassed minority in their own country, enter "Fjordman" - who insists to be quoted on this.
Rosenqvist also thinks that the details about Breivik's life on which the evaluators based their diagnosis aren't very convincing. For example, they note that Breivik lived with his mother and let her do his laundry and cook for him, and that he no longer had much social contact after 2006. But, in Rosenqvist's opinion, "Those aren't such unusual living conditions for young men."
Even the two psychiatric experts who wrote the official report gathered a series of signs that tend to speak for pathological narcissism. For example, when they asked Breivik what he thought the youths probably felt when he was shooting at them, the killer merely responded by discussing what the deeds meant for him. "On this day," he said, "I was waging a one-man war against all the regimes of Western Europe. I felt traumatized every second that blood and brains were spurting out. War is hell."
Torgensen gets the impression that Breivik found an ideal place to nourish his delusions of grandeur in the anti-Islamic scene full of crusader fantasies. "This was coupled with an extremely sadistic disorder," Torgensen says. "This disastrous combination could explain the scale of his violence."
What's more, Torgensen believes that officials are trying to use a diagnosis of mental disease to make Breivik disappear as quietly as possible. One thing that leads him to believe this are rumors that a new wing is being built in the prison that will be dedicated to psychiatric detainees.
But is it true? Well, not really. Three (3) of the 1516 pages of Breivik’s 2083 are taken from the Unabomber Manifesto, from a section where Kaczynski attacks the "left". The rest comes from elsewhere. Looking at Breivik’s main influences, four influential thought currents may be identified: contemporary Islamophobic ideologies, cultural conservative/neo-Confederate traditions, elements of modern White Power thinking, and anti-feminist thought, all framed by a distinctly romantic male warrior ideal.
The psychiatrists say he doesn’t express emotions when speaking of his family or childhood, and add that he tends to stare a bit, blinks quite often and uses few gestures. Breivik has a slightly rigid body language, which they believe is linked to his diagnosis.
Quite early in the so-called manifesto Breivik writes that he "strongly recommends" that the "patriots" undertake to translate and transmit the work which he laid out on the internet shortly before he began mass killings at 15.30 on Friday 22 July.
But no government or NGOs that NTB has contacted know that Breivik's advice about the translation has been followed.

That's probably a good idea. I wouldn't translate it either.
Mostly because I don't want to give anyone ideas.
