On July 22, 2011, a young Norwegian man called Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people in Oslo, most of whom were members of a social-democratic youth organization. This act of terror was motivated by Breivik in a 1500-page long manifesto, in which Breivik sketched a view of his Nordic race being threatened by Islamic genocide due to the actions of domestic traitors: cultural Marxists, feminists, multiculturalists. He also offered detailed guidelines for preparing similar violent actions. 

Breivik was convicted in Norway as a 'lone wolf'. A close analysis of the manifesto, however, shows that he was connected to several 'groups in the shadows'. The entire manifesto was written on the basis of online sources. And behind your computer, you are never alone. 

Breivik has recently become the topic of a Netflix movie, and several groups across Europe implicitly or explicitly display elements of Breivik's worldview and political strategy. It is high time we devote some attention to him and the world he constructed in his manifesto.
