“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Beautiful Soul Kills Humans, Again

HT @helloinhere: it appears the Norwegian Christian right wing terrorist (yes Fox that's right, again) bears a strong resemblance to the Jake Busey character (with similar motivations) in the Carl Sagan inspired Contact.

If you want to inspect the man's thoughts more closely, he has published a 1500+ page manifesto. It can be downloaded from the link below:


It includes quite a variety of strangeness. Turns out he was a member of the Masons and the Order of St. John.

I've not read more than excerpts, but it fluctuates between fairly well-ordered ideas (despite their grotesqueness) and rather insane minutiae from his experience.

It's cut from the same cloth as the Unabomber manifesto, although Breivik (or Berwick, as he calls himself in the manuscript) appears rather less rational.
