    He's not insane, he's just a deluded sociopathic megalomaniac. Nothing that he claims to believe has any validity whatsoever; multiculturalism is undeniably a good thing in every possible way.
    And you'd know that being from Cowbridge?

    Is Hitler the logical outcome of "Judaism"?

    What a ridiculous ****ing question.

    EDIT: I lasted about 10 seconds before I felt the need to apologise for violating Godwin's Law, but I think it's reasonable in this situation.
    So Breivik is to multiculturalism what Hitler was to the Jews? Bit strong.

    Multiculturalism has only had benefits for the people of Luton! :fuhrer:

    What if a Muslim said this about Osama Bin Laden?

    Hence the edit. The basis of my comparison isn't the degree of violence, I'm just trying to highlight how fallacious it is to call a distinct reaction on something a "logical outcome" of that thing.

    Interestingly Carlisle is the happiest place in the country and has quite a different demographic.

    Does there exist any single sociocultural trait that every native person possesses?
    No, but there are irrefutable trends and there is genuine ill feeling and resentment, which is unfortunately both growing, and being fueled by the actions of members of certain minority groups

    To ignore these factors serves as to encourage the Breivik's out there (and it is highly likely that there will be others in Europe in our lifetime) to take the law into their own hands

    In this respect such characters may be considered a likely, or logically probable, consequence of the (perceived) mismanagement* of multiculturalism/mass immigration

    What a scary thought that this man was not suffering from any kind of psychosis (schizophrenia is the diagnosis) when he was planning and then executing this crime.

    Also, If he were psychopathic, then why would he need to wear an ipod and listen to music when he was approaching his victims for the purposes of trying to 'calm his nerves'.
    schizophrenic people who commit crimes don;t do it methodically and preplaned, in most cases they have no idea what happened after a violent outburst. He is a cold-blooded sociopath.People may describe him as a "nut" (and he is a big one) but he is not mentally ill (at least not in a way that would make him irresponsible for his actions)

    No distinction at all. It's such a shame that the previous British sociocultural homogeneity and unhindered national integration of culture is now being vitiated by migrants.

    Really not sure where you're going with that.
    It's not a complicated post at all.

    Hmm pretty much yes. Mass immigration always leads to tension between natives and the new people. All we have to do is look back in history to see this.

    You may have to outline what Osama's views were before I can tell you how I'd react.
    Let's assume it was against US intervention in Middle Eastern politics.

    Multiculturalism, when mismanaged, can lead to more people embrassing right-wing and rasism overall, but Breivik is a sociopath, he probably just needed an excuse to kill, if it wasn't multiculturalism it would be something else.

    Different socio-economic groups can have the same over arching culture. A spanish peasant and a spanish king are more culturally similar to each other than to the respective lower and upper class people in your pic.

    Fair enough, shouldn't have been a terrorist though.

    I really don't think you're making a good point here.
    There is a very good point, if anyone tried to sympathise with OBL's views in public in 2002 they'd be annihilated for it. For some reason it seems to be quite acceptable to do so with Breivik a few months on from a huge massacre of children.

    There will be some tensions, but his response was completely abnormal and unnecessarily violent.

    Also as a complete random aside, I swear to God this is the truth...Anders Breivik tried to add me on facebook about 3 years ago. It really freaks me out. Was in the gym today watching him on sky news, he literally has no remorse for his behaviour stating he would "do the same again...". :/

    Same if you sympathised with Breivik in public.

    Many are sympathetic to his views though. Much the same as many muslims were sympathetic to OBLs views.

    Just a pretty evil way of expressing them. I wonder if people would feel differently if the socialists he shot weren't teenagers.

    What single sociocultural trait exists between all native members of a country?
