- · ‘Don’t worry, I wasn’t born yesterday, a cult couldn’t fool me or anyone in my family… only idiots and weaklings join cults.’
- · ‘In a free society everyone has the right to believe in what they want… if adults decide to hand over their time and money to some charismatic guru, it’s their own business.’

Whilst these opinions can all seem valid to the ill-informed, the underlying facts prove them to be nothing more than ego-protecting self-deceptions, which completely miss the point. It’s easy to understand that ‘knowledge itself is power,’ but it’s altogether harder to accept that (by the same token) ignorance is vulnerability. Obviously, cults never announce themselves, but their many disguises continue to adapt to mirror the changing spirit of the times. Throughout the ages, a dangerous minority of mythomaniacs, charlatans and would-be demagogues have always been able to get their human prey to sail blindly into positions of subjection, by first bedazzling them with all manner of false beacons which seemed so welcoming and authentic that the majority of people could not have been expected to determine exactly what was lurking behind them. Even though most of us want to deny it, at a moment of weakness all of us can need to listen to the latest cultic voice of insanity; especially when it appeals to our existing beliefs and instinctual desires, and originates from the apparent face of reason. To casual observers, the phenomenon might seem to be a ridiculous anachronism, but cultism or occultism has survived the tide of history and continues to wreck countless lives, simply because its instigators keep updating the lyrics of their siren song. Totalitarianism itself is enduring, its camouflage is ephemeral.
After failing to buy a nuclear device, Chizuo Matsumoto a.k.a. Shoko Asahara ('Great Enlightened One') secretly acquired chemicals to manufacture sufficient sarin nerve gas to kill betwen 4 and 10 millions people. Until the sarin was tested in the Tokyo underground, the urgent warnings of his critics, were generally dismissed as the foolish rantings of conspiracy theorists.
In truth, if it wasn’t for its tragic consequences, then cultism would be nothing more than a sick joke. However, until an individual is confronted by a nightmarish change in the personality and behaviour of a loved-one, then they can never really appreciate the full horror of the phenomenon. I realised a long time ago that there are always some people who will never be able to accept what I describe, because, for them to do so, they would have to abandon too many self-deceptions supporting their own view of themselves. Like many others before me, a soul-destroying experience with members of my own family forced me to abandon most of mine. Then, through close contact with the survivors of various cults and my research into the deeper origins of ‘Nazism’ and the ‘New Global Terrorism,’ I came to the further, inescapable conclusion that it is actually impossible to exaggerate the potential menace posed by the creators of these counterfeit cultures, or their significance to the history and future of civilization. I then found great comfort in the opinions of some of my critics, because the people who first tried to warn the world of the horror lurking behind an apparently absurd, little gang of sanctimonious charlatans - calling themselves the ‘National Socialist German Workers Party’ and led by a hitherto unknown, German Army veteran playing the comic-book role of ordinary man turned superman - were also dismissed as ‘alarmists.’
|Anders Behring Breivik (b. February 13th, 1979, Oslo)|
In the mean time, these public proceedings (which are scheduled to last 10 weeks), have become a world-stage on which Breivik, who has a right to a defence, is being temporarily allowed to act the unoriginal role of a racially, morally and intellectually superior victim. He knows that the death penalty has been long-since abolished in Norway, so his statements that 'there are only two just and fair outcomes of this trial - acquittal or capital punishment' and that he considers '21 years of prison as a pathetic punishment,' are predictable, comic-book drivel. In the adult world of quantifiable reality, Breivik is on trial (not his imagined enemies whom he hates, nor his comic-book alter-ego with whom he is in love), and Breivik is a 33 year old high-school drop-out who was rejected for military service, becoming a failed- businessman: turned successful-charlatan (peddling fake diplomas), and an addict of computer role-play war-games, who was still living at home with his mother.
- some of of his victims had 'begged for mercy,' but he 'shot them in the head.'

In his twisted mind, Breivik sees himself as his 'World of Warcraft' avatar, 'Justicar Andersnordic,' a sort of misunderstood doctor/judge, falsely-accused of murder for having the moral and intellectual courage to perform a cruel, but kind, operation in his beloved homeland, to cut out the malignant cancer of 'multi-culturalism' in order to prevent it from invading and destroying the ethnic and cultural purity of a superior, white Christian Western Europe. The following is some more of the predictable, comic-book drivel that Breivik has already spouted in court as the false-justification for his unjustifiable crimes.
- 'These acts are based on goodness not evil.'
- 'Under normal circumstances I am a very nice person.'
- 'It is impossible for cultural conservatives like me to get our ideas published in the media or in books, because of a project to protect liberal beliefs.'
Breivik claims to represent an 'international Christian Military Order, the New Pauperes Commilitones Christi Templique Solomonici (PCCTS, Knights Templar), established as an anti-Jihad Crusader-Organisation fighting against Islamic suppression.' In a lengthy document (1801 pages) entitled 'The Compendium 2083, What you need to know about our falsified history and other Marxist multiculturist propaganda,' Breivik describes how 'PCCTS' was secretly created in London in April 2002 by 9 men: himself, 2 Englishmen, a Frenchman, a German, a Dutchman, a Greek, a Russian and a Serb (represented by Breivik). 'The Compendium' further pretends that there are between 15 and 80 'Justicar Knights' in Western Europe, and an unknown number of low-level, loyal initiates who serve them. Breivik has predicted that, starting in Norway, the Order will seize political and military control of Western Europe before 2083, and his arrogant behaviour in court is apparently based on his ego-supporting fantasy that, no matter what sentence he is given, he will one day be free and universally hailed as a great visionary leader. Therefore, Breivik is currently laughing at the weakness of Norwegian justice (which he refuses to recognise), and it is possible to predict that he will, on conviction, repeat Hitler's boast: 'History will tear to tatters the verdict of this court.'
Indeed, if it wasn't for the tragic results of his puerile game of make-believe, then Breivik would be hysterically funny. At the risk of causing offence to the relatives of his many victims, he actually puts me in mind of the reality-denying 'Black Knight' in 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail.' That said, in the past, various psychopathic cult leaders have avoided rigorous investigation, because what they were actually plotting, seemed too outrageous to be true. Ironically, because he had killed so many innocent people in carefully-prepared attacks in two different locations, and suspecting that he might not have been acting alone, at first, the Norwegian authorities felt obliged to take Breivik's outrageous tales seriously.
According to this self-appointed, latter-day 'Templar leader,' his (imaginary) code-name is 'Sigurd' and his (imaginary) 'mentor's' code name is 'Richard' (after the historic warrior monarchs of Norway and England who feature in the computer war game, 'Crusader Kings'). Breivik describes himself as 'a one-man cell of PCCTS.' He has also insisted that 'there are other PCCTS cells in Western countries, including 2 more in Norway.' Laughably, Breivik has very kindly offered to provide information about these (imaginary) cells, in exchange for his immediate release from his (real) prison cell. However, after a lengthy investigation (assisted by several security agencies internationally), the Norwegian police (on medical advice) concluded that Breivik is a mythomaniac suffering from schizophrenia.
|Breivik's alleged 'girlfriend/lover'|
Predictably, there is already evidence that Breivik has attracted admirers. It has been widely-reported that a young German woman who describes herself as 'Breivik's girlfriend/lover' has been detained and deported from Norway, after giving a provocative interview to Norwegian television journalists outside the courtroom in which she expressed her support for Breivik and claimed to be exchanging letters with him. However, it is possible that this person is merely an opportunist, trying to make money from the tabloid press.
Of greater concern, it has also been widely-reported that persons identified as Norwegian, 'right-wing activist/extremists,' have been observed attending Breivik's trial. Whilst his poisonous fairytale, remains openly-available on the Net. in multiple languages.
