More like Manson than any blogger

Reader comment on item: [Breivik and] Norway's Terrorism in Context

Submitted by Abu Nudnik (Canada), Jul 27, 2011 at 10:55

The strategy he delineates is more like Charles Manson's than any blogger. Bloggers work within the system, pushing for policy changes. That's not terrorism nor does it feed them. Ideological psychopaths like Manson hoped to bring on a race war by massacring his victims. He claimed to be influenced by The Beatles' song "Helter Skelter." Almost no one blamed the Beatles.
