Andeers Breivik in one respect is everyman. He described in court, literally step by step.the process by which he hunted down innocent teenagers on an island and one by one murdered them. “They were begging for their lives. They could not run. I just shot them in the head. This is something they never show on television.”
He told the court of spending years training himself for war. “You cannot send an unprepared person into war.” He realized that any aspect of his humanity had to be eliminated if he was to murder and murder. In that respect, he is like all humanity. We have not stopped fighting for thousands of years. Anders simply is explaining how he became human–killing the innocent.
