Sometimes I'm confused by the reaction here. Some woman goes off on a racist rant on a London bus and she is branded on the blue as mentally ill, in obvious need of therapy, taking anti-psychotics, etc. This clown goes off on a racist rant by killing 77 people and we should be skeptical about him being declared mentally ill?
Even if we're prepared to take Breivik's general views as in some sense rational, the particular conclusion that the best way to move things forward was to go to this island and shoot as many people as possible seems insane to me.
Look at the post-orgasmic serenity on Breivik's face in that photograph (sitting next to a cop who looks up to dismembering Breivik as effortlessly as many of us carved our Thanksgiving turkeys, no less).
