Noway Tragedy: The Agenda is being Set

So, the first full working day after the bombing and shooting in Norway and already the agenda is being set.

Anders Brevik supposedly is a far-right nutter, now with speculative links to the EDL and I'm sure there'll be other links to other far right groups in other countries, just to help governments around Europe crack down on the rising nationalist tension in Europe.

No-one in the Left-led media can grasp the fact that he may be a nutter acting totally independently without any outside help. Most are clamouring for a scintilla of evidence that links him with the right and are drooling over any evidence that allows themselves to hype up any an all of these speculative links.

Lets be clear about this: the EU commission and others close to it have said that nationhood and national sovereignty are outdated concepts and the population of the EU must embrace the new status-quo. Nationalists of any shade are not allowed in the new EU socialist super-state.

There is no room in the EU for anyone advocating right of centre politics, you must be centrist or left of centre. This is the new communism, with political parties occupying such a limited spectrum of views, we are living to all intents and purposes a one-party-state. This is not democracy; democracy endeavours to include all opinions of all creeds and political persuasions. It does not enforce a limited bandwidth of political opinions.

If this subversion of democracy and freedom of expression continues, its sadly inevitable that atrocities like the one in Norway will be repeated around Europe as frustration and tensions increase. Ideologies will collide as they fight for dominance. The left are over-powerful in Europe right now and the right, shut out of democracy will end up limited to using violent means to express their views.

What Does the Tragedy in Norway Tell Us?

Mainly that it's very hard to detect a lone nutter with a plan for mass murder. Also its very hard to stop that nutter from carrying out their plan without detecting him in the first place. My condolences go out to the people of Norway affected by the tragedy.

The only solution to the "problem" of lone nutters is big walls and checkpoints around every city. However, we moved on from that centuries ago because as a race, we realised that the risk of getting killed was minimal and therefore acceptable. Even during the IRA bombings in London and Northern Ireland, people went about their daily business knowing that there was a risk of being killed or injured, but that risk was comparatively small.

Of course after those many centuries the relative safety of our cities (I say relative because our cities are certainly NOT safe for certain age/social groups), has lulled us into a state where any threat has to be nullified.

Well, that's the state our politicians are in, because there's now a threat, they will have to be seen to be acting on it. What's the betting that this act of terror will be hijacked by our government for their own purposes?

I'll be watching......
