Insanity's Aftermath

With the people of Norway still in a state of shock over the Friday bombings in Oslo and the massacre of innocent people at a Youth Camp outside the city, the picture is slowly emerging of a vision of hate rarely seen in Norwegian society. The nation as a whole is coming to grips while the world in general reacts with shock.

Yes, it can happen there. In the city that, for the last hundred years, has given us the Peace Prize. Not immune to the lunatic fringe and the sickness that comes well-armed. Even there.

Here is a re-cap of this day as presented on the BBC Radio 4 Program PM. With interviews and insights and maybe a bit more light shed on what impotent and fearful look like in Norway.
